orienteering 1:11:27 [3]

Really nice Brown course at WP. They hiked us up the hill to the start and then we got to play around on the top of the hill for a bit before threading our way back down. I was very sloppy to almost every control having to correct on the fly but I almost always knew about where I was and what I should be seeing so was able to avoid any large time losses. Was very surprised when I finished to see how high I placed.

strength & stretching 35:00 [3]

Another good training session. My legs were still sore from all the squats on Tuesday but after the first of many squats and lunges today they warmed up and were okay.

And the pulled muscle in my leg is better enough that stretching is straightforward again.


Lots of baby bunnies in the yard this evening. They were really cute but I wasn't fast enough to get pictures.

Came really, really close to being hit by a car today crossing City Ave from one side of campus to the other. I am always very careful as I've seen many near accidents there and cars always run the red light so I wait until I see the cars stopping before stepping into the road even after the crosswalk sign says to cross. The light turned and true to form, one car went through the red light but the next car was slowing down so I started across. When I got to the next lane though (it's 4 lanes with a turn lane in the middle so 5 altogether) a car came barreling up the hill and must not have been paying attention because she didn't slow down. I jumped sideways away from the car and by the time she stopped I could still touch the front of her car with my arm. Half her car was into the crosswalk. If I hadn't jumped I'd have been smushed on the road or at least knocked over. It took me a good hour to calm down.

strength & stretching 30:00 [3]

Trainer session. Lots of squats. Could tell I haven't done those for a bit - between skipping a session and having the pulled muscle it's been a while.

The pulled muscle isn't quite 100% but nearly. I still can't do the stretches I'm used to doing - it just pulls funny on that joint - but it's getting better.

hiking 1:09:45 [3] 3.32 mi (21:01 / mi) +520ft 18:18 / mi

Did not make it outside yesterday - just got caught up on all sorts of school work and other things. And was almost going to repeat that today, but finally went for a short hike. I bought new hiking boots last week and wore them today - they were really comfortable and I'm glad I got them. They're supposed to be waterproof - we'll see.
