Exerc. Class 1:00:00 [3]

"Step-it-up" class at the Y--intense (meaning I had to take a few more breaks than most of the others)! Hard to hear the difference between "vee" step and "knee" step, though. (Sometimes the "vee" is called the "y" step for just this reason; who knows if they might take my suggestion to change what they call it....)

Other (downhill skiing) 1:00:00 [2]

Locally, at Jiminy Peak. What a gorgeous day! I went with a friend/neighbor (okay, she lives 2.5 miles away on the other side of Malden Bridge) who's also in my exercise class. Did 10 runs, if I counted correctly.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Aerobics and strength (plus stretching). Not an intense class, thought I did get a good shoulder workout.

This took place before the skiing, but I forgot to record it until later.

Fitness equipment warm up/down (elliptical) 5:00 [3]
shoes: Asic Gel GT2110 8.5D

Warm up on the elliptical. Then I noticed that Jeopardy was on, in front of a machine at the other end... so I took the only machine not "taken" but it actually was (the fellow was probably lifting weights and only claimed the machine by leaving a coffee cup, but he shooed me away a few minutes later). So I moved to the treadmill....

Walking hills (treadmill) 30:00 [4]
shoes: Asic Gel GT2110 8.5D

On the "cross-country 2" course on the treadmill; speed set at 3.7mph. It says I only went 1.8 miles, but the intensity was more than for a flat walk. Watched the end of Jeopardy and then listened in to CNN a few TV's away while reading the closed captioning on a couple of soaps... (how can anyone watch those?).

Walking warm up/down (treadmill) 5:00 [1]

Cool down.

Exerc. Class warm up/down 55:00 [2]

As usual after an orienteering weekend, I was stiff and enjoyed the stretching portion of the class the most. :-) Nothing really sore, though, so exercising almost every day is helping my conditioning. Wish it could help get the weight down too...

Orienteering race (Green "long") 1:50:59 [4] *** 6.1 km (18:12 / km) +315m 14:28 / km
spiked:11/13c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

Flying Pig, day 3 - "Classic" (long) Green

Hooray! Didn't mess up #1 on this course. I managed to not do well on the 2 really long legs, though; probably lost 2 minutes on #5 by not going straighter (took the safer trail route), and then I managed to head SW out of #7 to end up 400 m farther south on the road than I expected to (and planned for), so I had to replan the route, which I then managed to not execute well. Lost about 15-17 minutes on this leg, for about 20 minutes of error overall.

I don't know if I finished 3rd today (as I did at the other 3 events); we had to leave as soon as I was ready so we could drive back to Columbus to catch a plane home. Will check results when they're posted. If Lex came in 3rd, she earned it. :-)
