map hiking 2:30:00 [3]

Checking out a different section of the new map. Completely different feel to the terrain. It will be two totally different orienteering days. Very cool.

map hiking 2:00:00 [1]

Checking out the new terrain. Some really nice stuff where I was today.

orienteering 1:12:43 [3]

Advanced night-o course at HR. Did it with Hugh. Felt amazingly good running in the woods! I really felt like I was flying. Made several silly errors - I was just having too good a time running to pay attention to my compass and pace count.


I really get lazy orienteering at HR. I know the park so well that I just sort of go and if I don't end up where I want to be I know where I am anyway and so can get to where I need to be. I probably can't go more than 100 m without running into a feature I recognize. It was a little harder at night, but not much. I really shouldn't train there - I'll get into bad habits.

My latest orienteering project:

Well, really, my niece Karen's latest project, since I hired her to do it.

Full resolution here (but it takes a really long time to download):

running 1:11:11 [3]

TNT - running on the drive. Started and ended with Bob but he took off after a mile. Did 4 miles - sort of. At 3 miles I made a pit stop - I needed to eat something before running this evening since I hadn't eaten since about 11:45 and I guess I either ate too much or not the best stuff (crackers and some peanuts which doesn't seem like a bad choice). Anyway, had to stop at Valley Green on the way back, and then it was really tough to get going again. Walked/jogged the half and then ran the last half mile at a decent clip.
4:59, 5:08, 5:08, 5:08, 5:24, 4:48, 8:57 (includes the stop), 5:03.

The rest of the time is the down and up - and my watch really does say 1:11:11.

Sandy and Karl came too. Dinner was waiting for us when I finished. Thanks Sandy!

Yoga/Pilates 1:15:00 [1]

Very tight after being on my feet so much this week, so all the stretching felt really good. Somehow it's just better in yoga class than anything I can do on my own. My arms were pretty dead though which is weird - can't think of anything I did that would have tired them out.
