With Rhonda, from PV, first time out in a while for both of us. On the way back we ran into our friend Cindy, who was going the other way, and while we were chatting her up our friend Susan Peacock showed up going the same way we were, so we visited with her for a while, too. Looks like the chatting ate up about 10 minutes. Not going too hard, felt fine. Could have gone quite a bit further if I had the time for it, but this is my busiest season.

Home from the rate hearing, too tired for anything but a little stretching and rolling.

Long day in the hearing. No energy to do any exercise.

In Rhode Island for rate hearings, preparing with attorney today, hearing tomorrow and Friday. Likely not much exercise unless at the hotel this evening.

From my hotel in West Warwick, half looking to find a place in the suburban sprawl to get something to eat, but didn't turn up anything appealing. Didn't feel like going farther, because the strange burning symptom in my left leg of a week or so ago has congealed into a pretty inflamed charley horse and it was pulling on my back. So back to my room to roll it for a while, and to do some butt exercises that I've been doing every day for a week or so.

With Rhonda, around the neighborhood. She is gently returning to exercise, so not pushing it.

dog loop, hot out. Still not strong enough for it to be interesting to try the formerly standard two loops.

Monday Jul 17, 2017 #


long travel day back from Winnipeg. A mostly successful trip. I finished two of three races, although DFL in both of them. Only contracted some very minor PI lesions (so far). Seem to have arrived home as intact as I left.

One of the really nice things was seeing old friend Fritz Menninger there. Hadn't seen him in quite some time and he is a fine fellow.

Orienteering race 2:16:07 intensity: (1:05:20 @1) + (1:06:35 @2) + (4:12 @3) *** 9.04 km (15:03 / km) +22m 14:53 / km
ahr:110 max:137 spiked:2/4c slept:7.0 shoes: 2014 icebugs

Long distance at Spruce Woods Provincial Park, course 6. Well, this was just way too hard for me. They got me right out of the start. Start was along the road with a remote start triangle, but the bag at the remote triangle was down in a hole, and I focused instead on the bag another 50 m down, probably a white or yellow control. Consequently I went up the hill in a clearing parallel to the one I thought I was in. Of course pretty quickly nothing made sense, but I kept soldiering on, still not able to make it match. Eventually I came to a bag in a depression, not expecting it to mean anything, since I thought I was off to the right someplace, but the control code was mine. Lucky break. #2 was fine, well executed, stayed in close contact, spiked it. Then #3 was the longest leg, control in a depression in a clearing in the middle of a large dark green area. Seriously? But remarkably enough I was able to stay in contact until a parallel error late left me 50m or so off to the right. Figured it out and headed west and got it.

#4 was pretty fine work, through some green, stitching together a few little clearings, popping out at the right place. spike. Then came 5. Thought I knew what I was doing, but now it seems I was off to the NE, but just couldn't make anything of it. A lot of wandering, back to the same place again for a while, trying different theories to match it up. After 45 minutes of that I decided I wasn't ever going to figure out where I was, headed out west toward the road and dnf'd in along the road, which took another 40 min from the time I gave up. Tiring.

Map and route

The part where I was off the map was after I had given up and I was walking out to the road through the yellow. I had kind of figured out where I was in my wandering looking for 5 in the wrong place, but not until that evening. Interesting now that I see the track that I took a hard turn R on the way to #3, and was lucky enough to figure out where to go at the end.
