9Round 32:00 [3]
ahr:110 max:126 shoes: Skechers GoFit

Took it a little easy today. After my workout, I collected my prize from the challenge, had my picture taken with the cash, and went and had a massage. It's a really good day.

9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:111 max:126 shoes: Skechers GoFit

Not as tough as yesterday, but some of the moves were difficult, like the Mountain Climbers and pushups on the BOSU at Round 9.

I had just started Round 9 when Pam, today's trainer, congratulated me on winning the challenge. I didn't expect to win, and was literally floored on the floor with the BOSU. So I won half the pool. Using the money for massages sounds like a winning idea to me. This (and the six pounds of fat that I lost) made it worthwhile to give up wine and chocolate for six weeks. And do lots of pushups.

ahr:119 shoes: Skechers Walkers

We hadn't been to Watkins Mill in awhile, so the trip out took 28 minutes, while the trip back only took 22, because The Little Hound wanted to sniff everything. Really windy on the dam, but really nice in the woods. We only went to the swim beach and back because I have a big picking and planting day.

Adventure race at Ft. Leavenworth. I knew I needed to do the shooting, canoing, and puzzling early, since it might be closed by the time I got back into the area. I picked up a few controls, then hit the paintball adventure. Since I was wearing a contact in my right eye, it messed up my depth perception a bit. Also, I hadn't shot a gun of any kind in a really long time, but after a little practice sighting in, I got my five paint cans.

I picked up a couple more controls and went to Lake Smith. Both the canoe and kayak were out, so I waited. I've been in lots of canoes, but never been in a kayak. Since I was solo, they wanted me to take the kayak. When the guy got in with the kayak, he was showing me how to get out of one, and he dumped and broke the paddle in half. So I went out in the kayak with half a paddle. But it was ok. Then I went for the basketball shooting, and I was really bad at that. Afterwards, I did my puzzle which was more in my area of expertise. After that, everything else was orienteering.

I picked off all the controls. A few were in high grass, and I fell once on some slick mud. Also I shortcutted with a trail that was really wet from about seven inches of rain in the last two days. Finally, I had two controls to go. Trouble. No. 4 was in lots of nasty brush, and I looked all over for it on the concrete spillway. In the process I dropped my map, then tried retracing my steps to find it, but couldn't, so I decided to go on, since I only had one more control, the Buffalo Soldier Monument, and I knew where that was. Then I saw No. 4. So I fought my way back up the hill, and reeled it back in in a thicket of poison ivy, and went on my way to No. 1 and the finish. And today I qualified for my jersey, and ate a hot dog and a cookie.

Lots of fun.

Burpee Friday. We did enhanced Burpees during the last 30-seconds of each round. My other heart rate monitor had an average of 105 and a maximum HR of 126. It is time to charge the battery.
10 AM

Dog Walking 29:06 [3] 2.01 km (14:29 / km)
shoes: Skechers Walkers

After 9Round and recycling, Elray and I went to the Riverfront trail, and walked from the old tennis courts to the road. It appears that they are putting in a skateboard park in part of the old tennis courts. The good news is that they finally provided a waste container.
