slept:7.0 weight:182lbs

My back is still a little stiff this morning. The stuff I put on it is really good - besides being odorless, it puts out good heat, especially when kept well covered.

slept:7.0 weight:181lbs

Another one of those "was going to" days. Except my lower back is very sore today (4 Advil knocked it down to bearable, and a medicated rub has helped some also), so it seemed better not to pound the pavement as I had planned. I think it is from carrying the backpack with the controls on Saturday.

Catch up all my ratings from the last week:
02/27: 0:1:1:1
02/26: 0:1:1:1
02/25: 0:1:1:1
02/24: 0:1:1:1
02/23: 0:1:0:1
02/22: 0:1:0:1
02/21: 1:1:0:1

Yup, I have been replacing water with diet coke, and eating junk with a vengeance (sort of).

Misc (THE DVD) 40:00 [2]
slept:7.0 weight:182lbs

HC DVD followed by 20 pushups. Feeling kind of weak tonight.

Two announcements - my daugher, Sarah (26), got engaged yesterday. She called about 10 last night after coming from the Maryland/UNC game (Maryland won). I was in bed - I thought I was awake when the phone rang - but I didn't remember she called until about lunchtime today.

The second thing is that I gave my Boot Camp notice for the end of the March session. I was obligated until then. Obviously, from my lack of attendance recently, I am not enjoying it anymore, so why continue to pay to attend less and less.

Orienteering race (Fork Union Orange) 57:33 [4] *** 4.73 km (12:10 / km) +85m 11:10 / km
slept:8.0 shoes: Ice Bugs - Red Storm

Woke up at 1:30 AM after crashing at 7:30 last night. Was awake for a couple of hours, but I was able to sleep for a bit longer.

Dodged the storm out of the DC area by coming down yesterday.

Helped with the epunching for a while, and then ran the Orange course. I didn't feel like visiting the controls from yesterday, and I also wanted to avoid the mile to the start.

Won Orange, and only revisted one control from yesterday from a different direction.

Weather kept the QOC attendance down, but MHS JROTC and 4 USNA mids showed up, and a handful of others.

Roads were wet but clear for the trip home.

It was a great weekend at Fork Union.

O Training (Fork Union) 2:38:00 [3] *** 7.0 mi (22:34 / mi)
shoes: Ice Bugs - Red Storm

Drove down to Fork Union a day early to bring the electronic controls. Also decided to hang 16 of them - forced training, otherwise, I may have slacked off another day.

It was a beautiful, crisp day in the high 20s/low 30s. Had to go fown to short sleeves before I was finished. Dropped off at race a mile into the remote start. Had a little difficulty with the first 3 controls, and then ~25 minute error to 4. Mostly settled down after that. I ran out of time, if I wanted to have lunch in the mess hall, so I skipped the last two and ran the mile in to the Muench's house.

Crashed at 7:30 PM!
