strength/stretching (Dog Days) 40:00 [1] 1.0 km (40:00 / km)
slept:7.0 shoes: Brooks Pureflow 5

At Comm. Building. Kenny Baldwin led workout with 10 laps around gym. Tried to save some energy before this evening's 5K.
6 PM

running warm up/down (walking/running) 25:00 [1] 2.0 mi (12:30 / mi)
(injured) shoes: Hoka One One

Warmup jog/walk from Levee Cafe to 8th & Ash for start of Ad Astra Free 5K. Then started the 5K and pulled adductor muscle (right) and had to quit. Walked to the finish near 3rd & Elm and helped with finish results.
Bad luck. I feared eventually some day I would get injured again. Today was the day. Cause: probably several long runs close together last weekend, new stretches at Dog Days with emphasis on doing them with more vigor. Did two days in a row of Dog Days - both harder than usual for me. Guess I have to cancel that treadmill stress test next Wed.

Iced. Read Grisogono's "Sports Injuries" - immediately started stretching exercises.

strength/stretching (Dog Days) 30:00 [1]

At Sports Pavilion today. Red Dog led drills which today included the "do 1 pushup jog 10m, 2 pushups, back to start, 3, then 4, ... until you do 10. I did 9. Felt like I had some energy today.

orienteering 57:00 [2] 4.0 mi (14:15 / mi)
shoes: Patagonia EVERLong

Went to Arboretum to check my courses and control points. Made a few changes and maybe altered courses (of course). Overcast, temp: 50F, slight breeze. Wore a short-sleeve shirt and ditched the jacket this time. Felt fine.

Stop and go to check trails I had left off and other map changes.

Glucose level blood test at LMH, took 4 1/2 hours. Finished reading the bio on Amelia Earhart (author: Kathleen Winters). Dee's also reading this book from the library. Read about the Wright Brothers last year; who next?
Concern: hypoglycemia.

(rest day)

Went to LMH to get a blood test, but they turned me away when I said I did not fast. I had asked the nurse from my doctor's office if I should fast; I'm sure she said no. Anyway, will go back tomorrow.
