Orienteering race 1:20:41 [3] *** 5.7 km (14:09 / km)
28c slept:6.0 shoes: 2017 Icebug Anima BUGrip

2nd race, this time at Montjuïc, billed as long distance, but had the feel of a really long sprint, with 28 controls and very difficult map reading. I spent a lot of time at the start looking for the triangle, backmg up from 3, finding 2 after a while, then 1, but just not able to track down the triangle, eventually the group one minute after arrived and passed, and then I found it. I wasn’t the only one with problems, as I caught up to the guy who had started 1 minute ahead of me about 2/3 of the way to #1, only a 200 m leg! A lot of difficulty finding gaps in fences, etc. the first time I have ridden escalators in a race. They were marked with red arrows showing the direction of travel, but I didn’t know that until later. Just hugely surprised by it. We had a map flip part way, as we moved to 7500. Flipped the map and studied it for a while before finding any course overprinting at all, and there were 15 controls! Very small circles and numbers, light grayish purple course overprinting. Not optimal for me. But it was a fun place to run, and I was thoroughly trashed after the run and the walk back to the event center. Maps and track later.

Orienteering race 1:04:46 [3]
shoes: 2017 Icebug Anima BUGrip

First race, 45 minutes by bus west of town. First half some very nasty green terrain, one big error when I started from 1 as if I were leaving 2 and got 1/3 of the way to 3 before realizing it and turning back, then mistakes trying to find 4 and 5. Then settled down, but a lot of physical difficulty with my back where I fell on it last week.

Hike 2:30:00 [3] 7.0 mi (21:26 / mi)
slept:2.0 shoes: 2017 Gray Gel Kayanos

Around Barcelona. No particular plan, but wandered down to the big park at Montjuïc and climbed the hill the the castle, looked out over the harbor. Very attractive city, probably the least vehicle traffic of any major city I’ve been in. Got here early and rested a bit after not sleeping on the plane.

7 AM

Gym 1:00:00 [1]
slept:6.0 weight:168.6lbs

In the gym with Eric, did a lot more today, but a bit limited by the sore butt from the fall. Deadlifts were a bit uncomfortable, so kept it to 4 sets at 95#. squats were more uncomfortable so didn't do them, but the hand was fine with pulling motions. GH raises, pull downs, dumbbell rows, planks, and the usual stretching and rolling.
10 AM

Note

Went for the follow up x-ray, which revealed what he said was a small crack just distal of the plate from last time. So, having seen my shadow, I am three weeks more in the brace until the next x-ray and then we'll see. Symptomatically, a fair discomfort flexing my wrist back, somewhat less discomfort flexing it forward. No grip strength issues. Hand is still purple and yellow, but feels much less bruised and has not been swollen since about day 3 or 4.
1 PM

Note

Had thought a bit about going out and running a couple of the so-called dog loops, but instead I went out and walked one with R & S, and that told me all I wanted to know about whether it would be fun to run it. Quite a bit of glare ice in the trail, although quite passable in the woods alongside. No interest in running on that stuff.

Gym 1:00:00 [1]
slept:5.5 weight:169.8lbs

Rhonda's morning yoga class, exposing how sore my butt/low back is from the falls last week.
8 AM

Hike 43:32 [0] 2.4 mi (18:08 / mi) +212m 14:14 / mi
shoes: 2014 gel kayano

Around the block with Rhonda. R hip flexor is pretty compromised right now.
1 PM

Hike 1:20:12 intensity: (2:42 @0) + (1:02:23 @1) + (15:07 @2) 3.99 mi (20:05 / mi) +257m 16:44 / mi
ahr:104 max:128 shoes: 2011 icebugs

With Rhonda and Sassy at Lake McDonough. Still very icy, but at least not covered with snow, so the icebugs were generally more effective and I stayed upright. Nice day, sunny, above freezing. Back at the house a lot of the ice is gone, but that trail gets so much foot traffic that the packed down snow once rained on and frozen is pretty resistant to melting.
