Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Floor exercises in a fairly large class. Glad I missed the T-day class that had 29!!

Leg muscles sore, esp. quads...

Orienteering race 2:02:29 [3] **** 7.97 km (15:22 / km) +337m 12:41 / km
spiked:11/14c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Green course at Mt Penn Antietam. A bit too ambitious-- I shoes should have done Brown. (interesting typo...)

Oh, this is painful. 8km? Really?

Most of the extra distance was on 7 and 8, though I wasn't confident on number 1 either once I reached the general area and saw all the other people milling about the area. I stopped, looked around, figured out what was up and headed off towards the platform, but dallied a bit doing so. In the back of my mind was the thought of how the course setter tended to hang the flags low. Later controls were almost totally obscured by "junk." I know I should be able to adapt but by the time I got to the area around 7 I was tired enough that I wasn't thinking clearly, and certainly didn't do what I should have done (back to O school, please?).

One thing I did notice about the map, after I got home and took out the magnifying glass, was that some of the contour lines on the hill above Green #8 were actually form lines; it's just really hard to see at a glance that some of the contours had (what seems to be) extremely small gaps. So I was reading the size of the hill incorrectly which is a partial cause of my difficulties. On my second try at 7, from the trail bend east of it, I got the right distance and stopped to look all around. Unfortunately, I was on the opposite side of a large downed tree (unmapped, of course; we were using a 2000 version of Mt. Penn Antietam), and I just never thought at the time to check around uphill from it as well as downhill. I mentally gave up at that point and attempted to find #8, thinking I'd be able to recognize a spur facing SW. Walked past a flag on a rocky knoll (or so I thought) and figured it was likely on a different course and never checked the code; if I had I would have discovered it was MY #8, and would have saved a lot of wandering. You'd think I would have learned that by now.

Anyway. It is what it is. I did well on 2-6, and 9-finish, with little time lost beyond slowing down from exhaustion. Legs (esp. quads) are very sore today; AP's calculated climb shows why. Advertised length/climb was 5.2 km/175 m. Right.

Walking (pavement) 52:07 [3] 5.46 km (9:33 / km) +18m 9:24 / km
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 #6 - H

Around New Holland near GSV, before feasting. Lovely day with temps in the low 50s and sunny/bright.

Saw several alpacas (in a fenced yard), no buggies, and one turkey fryer in the road in front of someone's house. :-)

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

No tools, achy shoulder because we did too much using arms (even tho I modified some). Achy hip didn't get stretched enough so I'll have to do more. Falling apart. :-)
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 26:04 [2]
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

Hill interval, level 3. Not enough oomph to push it, and threw in the towel before 40 minutes was up. 1.15 mi(?)

Adductors, pulldowns, leg presses.
