Orienteering long 1:28:09 [3] **** 3.6 km (24:29 / km) +125m 20:52 / km

Middle US Champs @ Lynn Woods.

So, this was a definite disaster. Missed badly on #1...I took 20 steps off the trail and was already unsure of where I was. I did fine on 2-4, but was thrown off by the extra water around #5. Tried desperately to fit the "ponds" to the map, but couldn't. I eventually figured out they were not on the map, got smart about the contours, and was able to find the control. Good for 6-9. On #10, I couldn't initially force myself to get far enough away from the trails to find the boulder. Good on 11 and 12, but after leaving 12, I fell on the rocks and totally bashed my knee. I said a very bad word. Luckily, that happened at the end. After I finished, I sought out Dr. Lux, who fixed me up.

Not a good day.


My orienteering might not have been stellar today, but my trip into Boston to see Caitlin and Graham (who was visiting his sister) was quite fine.

Hiking 50:49 [3]

A good hike in Jockey Hollow. The temps were slightly cooler and there was quite a breeze. It felt good to be out and even better to know that I am officially starting a vacation that will last until 11/1. Delightful!

Final visit to my orthopedic surgeon here before I head west and find a new doctor. His parting advice was that there really isn't much more I can do for my knees that doesn't involve surgery (aka, knee replacement). The only questions that linger are partial or full, now or later, which one first, etc.

Maybe my new, as-yet-unknown doctor will have some better, miracle advice for me.
