orienteering 1:17:59 [3] 4.9 km (15:55 / km)

Local DVOA event at Brandywine; did the green course.

Good enough for second. There was a lot of trail running possible and I seem to have chosen well in terms of when to go around, even way around. Two annoying errors - one when I deliberately did not barrel down to the main thoroughfare trail thinking I would be clever and attack a reentrant from the trails above only to find more trails than on the map and so got confused and then the control was 5 feet from the big trail anyway, and one when I couldn't read the map (it was very wet and humid and my magnifier was all fogged over) and I was momentarily thrown even though I was right where I wanted to be and should have read some other surrounding features to realize it and keep moving right to the control. Not a good per km time but I felt like I was moving well when the terrain allowed. It's a pretty green and rocky park.


I'm not always as observant as I think I am! I've only just realized that the funny grey highlights on the main page mean a thread with a post that I haven't yet read. I kept thinking something was weird with my browser but it wasn't that annoying so I didn't care. Ah well...

Yard work.

I don't dislike yard work. In fact I like it a lot more than many other things. But it does take up time and today it took up a lot of time and so I did not run like I had planned.

strength & stretching (Core DVD) 40:00 [3]

Despite not having done it in a while, it wasn't too bad.

running 1:11:47 [3]

4 miles on the drive this afternoon:
538, 525, 1024, 535, 459, 538, 513

Hiked home by cutting straight up the hill instead of using the switchback trail that comes out by the horse ring; that was hard enough that my ears were ringing for a bit.

Sweated off 3 pounds! But put it back on again right away - just didn't know I could lose that much. I guess it was humid. :)

trail (short hill loop) 33:03 [3]

Another day of feeling really slow and the time is pretty fast. I'd rather that than the other way around!

If there's just me, does it count as tnt? Ran early before it got dark.

Yoga/Pilates (class) 1:15:00 [1]

A pretty good class. I was worried my knees might not do too well but they felt pretty good as long as I moved slowly in to and out of a few of the poses. Did quite a bit of basic strength and stretching stuff and not so much of the handstand and tricky balance stuff.

A good way to help the recovery from Sunday.
