orienteering 1:36:51 [3] 5.4 km (17:56 / km) +195m 15:12 / km
shoes: VJ LOPs

DVOA Spackman Creek - Green

This is one of my favorite places to orienteer, and also one that I hardly ever get to visit. So I really enjoyed getting out there for today's course. Really only had small navigational errors and was starting to feel a little tired and worn on the way to 12, but aside from that it was a very great day. Mostly nice open terrain except for a few areas of crappy ferns/stiltgrass/other groundcover, but even then the visibility wasn't affected. Moving somewhat slower than I could have, but taking my time to really enjoy the forest.

Saw tons of frogs and toads! And thankfully no bears!

biking 45:30 [2] 6.5 mi (7:00 / mi)

Lancaster Junction Rec. Trail. I did the whole thing out and back and then part of it again. This is a very short trail compared to what we had in York and also the surface is not as nice, so probably slower. Very pleasant evening.

horseback riding (english) 1:00:00 [2]

Lesson on William. The ring was muddy so we did only small jumps tonight, and I managed to do some pretty mediocre riding with the occasional moment of semi-brilliance. Ha. My back only felt a little sore while riding and strangely enough it now feels a lot better.

Dozens of bats flying around when I walked William out to the pasture, swooping right down near us. Very cool.

walking 31:34 [2] 2.0 mi (15:47 / mi)

My lower back was killing me yesterday, causing me to be quite cranky overall. I put an IcyHot patch on it and was careful how I slept, and it feels somewhat better today though not 100%. I decided to try taking a walk, and this did loosen it up a little more. Hoping to feel even better tomorrow so I can ride on Thurs and orienteer this weekend.
