Cross Training 40:00 [3]

600 calories.

Level something, on the Precor.

Weight training 8:00 [3]

Dips and pullups, to exhaustion.


Sandy and I went to the mountain. The final piece is on the board.

Survived the trip back on Air Gregorchuk from Gaithersburg. Which is fortunate, so NAOC 2012 is still a go.

Given the weather yesterday, survival was not a foregone conclusion. Luckily Scott did not continue on to NYC. He would have ended up in Kansas.

Run 1:35:00 [2]
shoes: GoLite Versa Lite

It was still light enough and I got in a longish run at Ridley, past the park office, etc.

Oh, yes--Unibroue makes me happy.

Run 40:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Progrid Ride 11/9/2009

I actually used lunchtime to run. Which was nice.

Level 8, and 9mph at the end.

I'm in OK shape right now, somehow. Not great, but good enough that it is a disgrace to put forth "efforts" like Sunday's.

I do seem to have sustained a groin/lower abdominal strain. Not surprising--it has happened before when I've started to do some faster running. It is noticeable sometimes at night, when sleeping on my stomach.

Have to try to get over that.

3 x 8 dips, 2 x 8 pullups, and some situps and pushups after the run.
7 PM

Run 1:00:00 [2]

A solid level 2. Stopped off at the plaground to do some weightes.

7 PM

Run 1:00:00 intensity: (40:00 @2) + (20:00 @3)
shoes: Reebok Bobby Curtis

Set off and it started raining. Which was fine, but then there was lightning. I got to the BU Bridge and decided to seek refuge among the tall buildings of Cambridgeport. Wandered around through there, then over the Mass Ave bridge, by the Science Museum, and back out to the Longfellow and back home.

Run 10:00 [2]

Warmup and some drills.

Orienteering race 20:00 [3]
shoes: August 2009 Integrators

HR Blue.

The royal chainik defeated me soundly.

A number of things conspired against me: inadequate sleep over the past week or so, a lot on my mind (mostly NAOC 2012), too much activity the day and night before, and lack of racing recently meant that my body and mind were feeble.

So, Colgan could get in my head and blow it up. It was like an opportunistic infection that wouldn't at all bother a healthy individual.

Bailed after 2, but went towards three so I could get out to the road and do a jog and slink back into the camp unnoticed.

It does suck that the HR weekend ended on such a low note.

Map hike 1:00:00 [1]

Stopped by Loch Lomond on the way home.

My plan B for the finish arena didn't pan out. So, it is back to plan A, but there could be plans C and D.

A large pile of bear scat in the likely event arena area (down by the pond and bathrooms.)

This race will require a lot of time in the woods this fall and winter before I'll even know exactly where we should map.

It would be really nice if we could mow sections of the Loch Lomond fields... for W/Y trails and the arena.


Maybe this is what did me in?


Didn't cause Vadim any problems, though.
