Orienteering (Course Setting) 35:16 [3] 2.94 km (12:00 / km)
slept:4.5 weight:180lbs

Rock Creek, MD. Starting from Mark Twain School and Park, I set out controls on the west side of Rock Creek up to Southlawn Rd., then set one control at the west end of Lake Bernard Frank. Peggy picked me up from there to go to the Meadowside Nature Center where some training that I setup was to start. I felt fairly slowish on this. Perhaps it was the warmth and humidity. I ran all but the steepest parts. It was fun to run the nice woods west of the creek and to see controls in the woods that I'd mapped.

Orienteering (Course Setting) 11:38 [3] 0.8 km (14:32 / km)

Meadowside Nature Center at Lake Bernard Frank, Montgomery County, MD. I setup the first and last controls of a training event that I setup. Both of these were down and up a fairly steepish hill. On the way back from one, I slowed to verify the mapping.

Orienteering (Control Pickup) 4:51 [3] *** 0.5 km (9:42 / km)

Meadowside Nature Center at Lake Bernard Frank, Montgomery County, MD. I picked up one control which I'd set out earlier. Dave Onkst volunteered to pickup the first set of controls that I'd set out earlier as he ended his loop of the course that I setup. That left me with not much else to do but it was much appreciated.

Hiking (Foot) 40:00 [1] 0.8 mi (50:01 / mi)

Meadowside Nature Center, Lake Bernard Frank, Montgomery County, MD. While others were out running the courses. I hiked with Max, Nicole Lennon and her friend Isabelle. We went to control #1, the followed along the North Branch. It was very liesurely and the kids stopped to rock hop and get their feet wet. The weather was perfect for it.

Running (Baby Jogger) 28:33 [3] 3.3 mi (8:39 / mi)
slept:5.0 weight:179lbs

I had hoped to run with MCRRC from Ken Gar Palisades Park but it was busy there and we were a bit late. Starting from Garrett Park Rd. on the Rock Creek (Maryland) Trail I pushed Max in the baby jogger up to the park beyond Randolph Rd., the on spur trail to Dewey Rd. We turned around at Gaynor Rd. It had been a long time since I'd taken Max along on a run. My lapse in running last spring and summer had a lot to do with it as does cold weather but I was also figuring that Max would no longer sit that long in it. It worked fine. He only complained about which playground he'd go to and I think it was either his lack of sleep or his hunger talking. The complaints didn't last long. I ran okay and took it easy. I was without left knee pain so I'll aim to do more running again. In the time since the Flying Pig, my knee has been more apt to pop but it seems to have settled down a bit.

Bicycling (Commute) 48:11 [3] 13.08 mi (3:41 / mi)
slept:5.5 weight:179lbs

From Northfield Rd. to Maple Ave. with Max in his trailer, then to C St., SW, Washington, D.C. via the Capital Crescent Trail and Ohio Dr. The weather is predicted to be nice enough so I'm finally getting around to riding all the way in to work again. I was somewhat bundled up but felt good wearing full gloves, long tights, and a jacket all except for the last 4 miles. I tried not to push too hard.

Bicycling (Commute) 51:33 [3] 12.86 mi (4:01 / mi)

From 12th St . SW, Washington, D.C. to Maple Ave., then to Northfield Rd., Bethesda, MD. For my first ride all the way home in a long while, I negotiated the heavy pedestrian traffic while getting out of D.C. and had some modest headwinds until getting to the water treatment facility. I kept a steady ride and tried to keep things spinning easy enough. There were lots more runners wearing earphones and in the middle of the trail than usual and they often were oblivious to traffic like me that was trying to get around safely. The weather was great. I packed my jacket, wore shorts, and rolled up my sleeves. The smell of pollen reminded me of Max's quote of the day while on the ride yesterday. He surprised me when he said: "MMmmm, flowers. I can just taste the suger in the air."

Bicycling (Commute) 13:49 [3] 2.76 mi (5:00 / mi)

From Northfield Rd. to Maple Ave. with Max in his trailer, then to the Bethesda Metro Station via the Georgetown Branch tunnel. It was a bit damp on the roads and trail but pretty nice overall. I was tempted to ride all the way in but I only prepared for going to the metro station. I had been a bit busy the last few days; we celebrated Peggy's birthday last night.

Bicycling (Commute) 26:21 [3] 4.49 mi (5:52 / mi)

From the Bethesda Metro station to Maple Ave., then to Norwood Park via via the Georgetown Branch Trail, then to Northfield Rd. via Glenwood Rd. and some side streets. As I was getting to Max's day care to pickup the trailer, I passed Peggy stuck in traffic. She was going to pickup Max but instead he came with me so that he could go to a playground. It was a great evening; full of sunshine and pleasant temperatures.
