orienteering race 29:38 [3]

Prelim: Fun little course. Really enjoyed it. Was reasonably clean and AP agrees! There was a 100m run to the finish on a big wide trail and since I felt like I had been moving well, and had had a good outing, I decided to try jogging a bit and it didn't hurt too much at all.

Final: Stiffened up quite a bit waiting for the second race, but was able to loosen up okay. Got a little confused out of the start, but pulled it together and don't think I lost much time. (I kept forgetting all weekend that the start triangle was not where we actually punched the start box but at the flag a little ways away and while I recovered quickly each time, you'd think I'd be a little more prepared the second and third time!) Another relatively clean run on anther fun little course.

map hiking 55:00 [3]

Hanging a few streamers at the Water Gap on my way to NEOC. After I finished, I debated scrapping my plans to drive up there and doing another loop of rogaine controls and then doing another bunch Saturday and Sunday. I don't think I'll be able to get up there again for two weeks and so I'm starting to stress a bit about getting all the stakes out in time to give my vetters a chance to check them. But decided I really like the NE terrain and it would be fun to go. (And now home on Sunday very glad I did!)

My leg felt great on Monday and the PT appointment went well. Nothing hurt at all. And I mean at all. And I was ecstatic.

She had me do a bunch of things to strengthen various muscles all around the joint. Again, nothing hurt although I could tell those muscles were getting a serious workout. And the plan was to do a short jog this morning before my appointment this afternoon to see how that went.

Yesterday, I felt a few twinges in the general area of where the pain used to be, but nothing like what it used to be. This morning the same. So I decided to try the planned jog. Well that was a bust. After about 10meters I could tell that the pain was there and after about 50 it was bad enough that I decided that the smarter course of action was to stop.


I see the therapist this afternoon. Hopefully she can work her magic and get me to where I can do the courses this weekend at the Troll Cup.

map hiking 3:41:58 [3] 0.99 mi (3:44:15 / mi) +72m 3:02:49 / mi

A second day of streamering in the Water Gap. Garmin went all funky shutting off recording after about an hour but collecting the total time nonetheless.

Climb today was crazy - a quick look says about 400m. It's a rogaine; gratuitous climb is totally acceptable. Had 6 hilltops and 3 stream bends today.

Feel pretty good. I'm sore to be sure, but the hip/leg issues I was having two weeks ago at BAOC seem to be almost gone. Wonder what the physical therapist will have to say tomorrow. I really hope I didn't overdo it, but it was another glorious day out there. I totally overdressed to start, but took off all the extra layers at the first control. Used both hiking poles again and was glad I had them in a few places.

Had dinner with Dennis and Emily on the way home. It makes the long drive up to the Water Gap not so bad being able to stop and see them at about the half-way point.
