Orienteering 1 [2]

At College Woods returning from S. Eliot boat visit. Started at 4:05. Wasn’t sure if I was going to do the whole Saturday green again. But after 8, there seemed no choice. #2 still hard - missed it but stopped to see how lacking the map is there. At the top of the big reentrant south of the trail, there is a prominent unmapped boulder at the top of the large mapped cliff. Then the mapped modest E-W knoll immediately after. In the terrain, I see a large N-S knoll with mappable rock features on the approach. The depicted small east-west knoll deceives. Straight compass from the top of the big cliff/unmapped boulder took me to the Sat. control point, over the shoulder of the big knoll. Didn’t do well with the contours on the way to 3 either.

The rest was straightforward enough. Tired before the end, irritable with the sticks that continually tried to trip me up, with some success. Raining at the end. Home late for a 6:30 meeting, Siri & techno fusion screwing everything up. Had just driven home on Saturday (as well as for years from Durham) but smart alec Siri choices as presented, together with a rotating, zoom out screen, were over the top. Maybe if I’d stopped, at least to lock the screen…

Garmin Connect totally failing on 2 computers. I grade technology today “Fail”.

Added to the BG dilemma a maybe cracked rib. It doesn't hurt enough unless coughing but there was a 'pop' lying hard on left anterior chest wall, both arms thru a 7x11" bilge access putting on and tightening a hose clamp.

Walk-jog 30:00 [1]

Toward the end of the best day in May so far - went to BHS looking for the track but it was full of activity. Went to the middle school where there is also an old (hard top) track but it too had May activity. Went to Hammond Preserve which I had to myself. Did mostly walking & stretching & wondering what I can do physically re BG, eg, I have a hard time putting shoes & socks on in the morning kind-of-thing. It improves but not enough to feel positive.

Hammond Field was a gorgeous green. Read a few graves stones, the one at 11 o’clock in the photo belongs to David Hammond, died 1810. The medallion at the base honors him as a Revolutionary War vet. And, of course, his wife Hannah (couldn’t read her dates) lies beside. And the epitaphs are a struggle to read but the message familiar.

Sunday May 5 #


Tired, back stiff, feeling behind the eight ball. Have a full-blossomed cold which adds to the listlessness - not to mention the grey skies & rain for the past 2 weeks. Wonder about the BG. Months ago, I imagined being in pretty good shape for me but best laid plans got lost somewhere somehow.
