Event: DVOA Batsto

orienteering race 58:44 [3]

Brown course at Batsto. It's fun to run at Batsto - reasonably flat and easy on the joints. The ground is soft and there are no rocks and I actually pushed and ran a good bit of the course. Made some silly mistakes to #1 and #3 (they were just on trails for goodness sakes and I made them way harder than they needed to be) and was sloppy out of 5 drifting way to the right thinking I was up and over the spur when in fact I was just running down the reentrant like I definitely didn't want to do. Anyway, the blueberry doesn't bother me - it's not thorny or anything so you can push through it - but I heard people grumbling about it. And the sandy soil makes it so easy on the joints so that running doesn't hurt. Was able to push it in spurts - just no endurance. But working on that. A good way to end the DVOA season but planning to head to QOC next weekend.

trail 38:48 [3]

Test loop. Ran the first 10 minutes, then ran 100 paces, walked 100 paces regardless of whether it was up or down, then ran the last bit from the tree in the meadow to the fire hydrant, walked up the block huffing and puffing.

I should borrow a forerunner sometime and see how long/short this loop really is.

hiking 2:00:00 [3]

In the Wissahickon. Managed to pick a time when it wasn't raining. The woods looked really cool today - the lighting probably helped. Didn't really try to push, just tried to keep up a decent pace although the hills were kicking my butt.

strength & stretching 40:00 [3]

Core DVD


Bought a foam roller and a stick - my calves and toes have been cramping lately. Already, after just two sessions, my calves feel much better. Hard to use the foam roller on my calves, but the stick works great. The foam roller, though, is pretty nice on some other muscles. Will try to develop some sort of routine to do regularly.

walk/jog 51:56 [3]

TNT - with Sandy on the drive while Jim an Bob ran the other direction. It was about 12 minutes to get down to the drive (walked all of that), then about 26 minutes to do two miles jogging a bit more than 1/2 of it and 14 to hike back up.

strength & stretching 35:00 [3]

30 minutes of the yoga dvd. I get more sweaty doing that than core dvd.

Then did a bunch of core stuff: push ups, leg lifts, side planks and regular planks.
