9 AM

Walking warm up/down 20:00 [2] **
shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

To start, via arena to drop off clothing for later.

Orienteering race (Brown) 1:01:11 [4] **** 4.51 km (13:33 / km) +24m 13:12 / km
spiked:11/13c slept:6.5 shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

SL 3.2, 50m climb; temp in mid to upper 40s

Troll Cup day 2 with a chase start based on yesterday's time on the course, so I started 21 sec behind Sandy and 20 seconds ahead of Trisha, so I knew we'd be fairly close for the first few controls.

Discombobulated at the start, looking at the line from 13 to 12 and thinking I had to take the trail west, until it bent north. Huh? Oh! Not a bad route choice after all; left the trail just past the little side loop and stayed right of the big hill, punching ahead of Sandy and Trisha. Straight to 2 following the stone wall and attacking off the end of it. Popped out to the trail to 3 and left it just past the pair of boulders on either side, while Trisha, running faster, went beyond, possibly up to the bend. As I got close I saw Marty H-T leaving the area and Sandy going in; straight was apparently faster (Candice said she went that way, and she had a faster split than me too). Behind Sandy toward 4 and then she veered a bit right of where I wanted to go, so I kept on and found it (saw the water bottles before the faded flag, however).

To 5 I went up the trail a bit to use the big boulders as "stepping stones" to lead me in. No problem to 6 and 7, but then disaster, when I wasn't as high up on the hill toward 8 as I had thought and when I got to a gigantic erratic, I misidentified it as being farther up the hill than it really was. In retrospect I should have taken into account all the other boulders I saw near it. Lost ~10 minutes while I circled around (seeing Sandy go by didn't help since at that point I didn't know whether she was on her way there or had already found it) and eventually I came back to the large erratic, finally determining that it was mapped as a black oval. Oh.

Flustered, I didn't leave 8 in the right direction and went along the hillside ESE instead of SSE to 9, until I realized what I'd done; lost another 3 minutes there. Okay for the rest. Still, it was good enough for third place behind Mary Jo and Sandy. Chocolate medals were our prizes. ;-)

Walk/Jog warm up/down (to start) 30:00 [2] ** 2.2 km (13:38 / km)
shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-B 2013-10

Walked from parking to arena to drop off bag of warm clothes for after race, and then walked and jogged to start.

Orienteering race (Brown) 1:01:39 [4] **** 4.11 km (15:00 / km) +11m 14:48 / km
spiked:9/10c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-B 2013-10

SL 3.4 km, 55m climb, by Dean Sturtevant...a very nice brown course in a complex area with not a lot of elevation change. 1:10000 map with 2.5m contours; glacial terrain with pine saplings reducing visibility in some areas.

Temps around 40 or so, and sunny which made it mostly comfortable for standing around later. Others in my class were spread out timewise so we hung around a bit to see later finishers.

AP lists me with error on 7, but I was just being slow and careful. My big mistake was to 9 where I wandered a bit, off the map north of where I needed to be, but relocated and figured out where I needed to go. My error was due in part to seeing a control on the big trail (when I reached it) in a low wet spot and assuming it was the stream crossing on my map just NE of 9; it's most likely off the map and on tomorrow's white course. I figure I lost almost 6 minutes there. I saw Bob B, who had punched #8 just ahead of me, wandering in the same area but he apparently took a lot more time to figure out what he'd done.

Chase start tomorrow should be interesting with Sandy 21 sec ahead and Trisha about the same time behind. Hope the course is as much fun.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

In Chatham. After our warm up and aerobics segments, did a bit of circuits with weights (1 min each area) which is a bit of a change from her usual routines. Conversation lively and entertaining as always.


Following PG's example, I purchased fingerless bike gloves with padding in the heel-of-the-hand area. I fell at Mountain Lakes and still have a nodule from the impact; and then I landed on it again last weekend. I'm hoping these gloves will keep me from doing more damage to my hands when I fall. I may have to adjust the length of the left thumb to make room for my thumb compass strap.

Now I just have to figure out how to protect my knees.

Pilates class 55:00 [2]

Using weights. I was exhausted after the warm-up today. :-)

Pulldowns (barely 8 at 68.75#), and adductors (20 at 75#).

Walking warm up/down (indoor track) 3:50 [2]

3 PM

Walking (roads) 49:59 [3] 4.95 km (10:06 / km)
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

After voting, Glen dropped me off a bit less than 3 miles from home and I walked the rest of the way. (Polling place is about 5 miles away...I used to walk when the polling places --firehouses in my area-- were 1-2 miles from home).

Low to mid 60s on November 4th!

Saw 4 dogs (including 2 scarydogs), and 5 horses.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Some anomalous achiness in my left knee (the newly injured one) while doing step, but not enough to make me stop. Nice class once I woke up enough. :-)
