Walking 2:10:00 [3]

Chubb trail from West Tyson to Lone Elk. Very fast pace fro group of 8 led by Barb of Let's Hike group.

Richard Ruid sighting! (He noticed I was carrying an O' map.) He runs Chubb every Sunday AM. No time to talk much - too hard to catch up to my group.

Then drank coffee and read paper at Lone Elk - real close-ups of elk and bison. Very short hike.

Cycling 2:30:00 [3]

Monarch Levee ride with Recreational Cyclist group - fantastic ride including T, Ossenfort, Wild Horse Creek, Fox Creek, Allerton, etc. Perfect temp, sunny, light northerly breeze.

In terms of pace and rolling hills, my strongest ride so far - felt great. Almost recorded level "4". group dynamics a bit odd - riders kept joining and falling off pace - fun.

Running 30:00 [2]

So close to Babler - why not a trail run? From VC, mostly ran the equestrian trail. Net down hill since at goal of 30 minutes I stopped and walked uphill off-trail. But I did run-walk several uphills.

Guy I met had a load of oyster mushrooms. Off-trail, I looked and found one huge set at base of tree. Took largest ones, left half. Yummmm... tonight.

Walking 15:00 [2]

Uphill back to VC at Babler.

RT to FVCC to listen to Underwood Lecture by Dean Curry and see 'old' friends start their newest semester. Ride was definitely easier than it was 6 months ago.

Columbia to Valmeyer loop with STLRC. About 10 of us - nice group.
Lightly traveled roads except for Bluff Road - but several roads were oiled and chipped not too long ago.
Cool and stiff wind.

Cycling 2:30:00 [3]

Home to Soulard (can't resist the peaches, apples, tomatoes) to Langton's in Kirkwood and back home. Long, pleasant urban ride. Got lost once leaving River de Peres trail - met nice pair of lemonade sellers!

Orienteering race 41:00 [4]

Andrew designed nice first course at Laumeier - good job! Several good route choices.
For the most part, I read ahead quite well. A couple frustrating errors on such familiar grounds.
From 12 to 13, I climbed through woods and took high trail. Checked off #5, then couldn't find small trail. No Plan B, so just pushed through woods - hit road and bounced back (-3 min?).
17 was so obvious and 'near end' that I did not plan 16->17. Went form 16 to finish first instead of direct to 17. Ugh. (- 1-2 min)
7->8: in order to avoid climb and rough open, I went low and left to stream. Down stream was slow and seemed to take 'too long' to get to 8. More frustrating than lost time (-1?)
