orienteering 3:56:07 [3]

Billygoat. Knew I was not really in the kind of condition to be able to do this comfortably but figured I should do it anyway as a way to kick start my rogaine training. As expected, bonked at about 3 hours and it was a struggle to just keep moving. The little gnat things were annoying me horribly though and stopping to rest was out of the question so I kept moving. Got a bad cramp on the inside of both thighs right before #20 though and had to stop and work them out. Limped through the rest of the course.

No major errors but lots of fumbling near the controls for 30s here and 30s there. Just not able to focus especially as I got tired.

What a blast though - it's always a good day when you get to go find controls in the woods. And the weather was fantastic. And the people great.

Yoga/Pilates 1:00:00 [3]

And the third yoga instructor.


And some yard work. Helps keep me loose: it's time not on the computer and I generally get up and down off the ground a number of times and twist a lot.

Hike in the Wissahickon. Not sure how I'll get through the Billygoat given how tired I am after that.

Yoga/Pilates 1:00:00 [3]

A second yoga class this week with a different teacher at the same studio; very different style from Monday but just as good a workout. Hopefully not as sore tomorrow as I was Tuesday from Monday's class - the massage scheduled for later today should definitely help!

Wasn't sure I'd make it to class this morning as I had major cramping last night in my legs (I assume from the TNT run) and my knees were rather creaky (definitely from the run) when I first got up this morning. But felt reasonably good by the time I had to leave for class and feel much better now.

TNT - Indian loop with Sandy from her house. It was slow and painful and I had trouble keeping up with Sandy but I got it done.

Yoga/Pilates 1:00:00 [3]

Good to get back to a class. Arms weak and everything else tight. Felt great.
