Orienteering race 32:57 [4]

Ran-it Granite Middle

Hiking 40:00 [1]

Came back to the same terrain as the day before, this time with my GPS. Took tracks on much of the trail network.

Orienteering race 17:26 [5] 3.0 km (5:49 / km)

First leg of victorious sprint relay team with Eric and Emily. Fun having that many people ahead of me in the woods to chase down or ignore as circumstances dictated.

Orienteering race 13:24 [5]

First sprint.

Orienteering race 12:50 [5]

Second sprint.

Hiking 30:00 [1]

After the sprints, went to have a quick look at some terrain on the way back to DC. Initially looked as though the whole area was a sea of Japanese barberry cut up by trails but I was both undaunted and fortunate - when I continued to the portion of the area above the floodplain that looked most interesting topographically, I found almost entirely open woods, largely trackless and with a sprinkling of rootstocks and even mappable rock features. It appeared this nice terrain amounted to approximately a square kilometer.

Cycling 1:02:00 [3]

Cycling commute including PCRM on the way home.


Got rear ended at extremely low speed on the Beltway late in the afternoon on the way back to the office from a meeting. No more than a fenderbender and I think and hope I'll get out of it with just a slightly sore neck when I wake up tomorrow but we shall see. My colleague who was driving will, regrettably, probably have an extremely sore neck or perhaps worse - I think she was more affected largely due to having her neck twisted a little bit to one side, since she reported not being able to twist her head to the right afterwards, in addition to the pain.

Cycling 24:56 [4]

Actually took me 25:18 (subtracted time stopped at one light) and that was from the first corner after leaving my front door since I was obstructed by Sacred Heart students clogging the sidewalk until then. Probably means unobstructed time door to door, red-lined, after my body has had all morning to wake up, hitting all the lights perfectly and in the absence of rush hour pedestrian traffic, is currently about 25:10. I think this is slightly faster than the similar occasion last fall but the effort level may have been slightly higher.

Cycling 32:00 [3]

Cycling home by way of the aquatic center.

Deep Water Running 1:50:00 [2]

More of The Rest is Noise then about 80% of Histoire du Soldat (the English version conducted by Stokowski - I wish the French version he did was available somewhere).

Tuesday Mar 24, 2009 #

Cycling 1:25:00 [3]

Cycling to work. Then home plus a round trip to the Kennedy Center to see the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

Monday Mar 23, 2009 #

Cycling 1:02:00 [3]

Commute including going by TPSS and the aquatic center on the way home.

Deep Water Running 1:45:00 [2]

Listened to more of The Rest is Noise - finishing up Berg, and covering Stravinsky's early successes and contemporaneous developments.

Sunday Mar 22, 2009 #

Cycling 1:35:00 [3]

Cycling parts of getting to and from Rosaryville and home from the NGA.

Orienteering 25:00 [3]

Picking up the three least convenient controls from the training course. Fortunately, Pat Zerfas, Mihai, Corinne and Patti Mace got the rest of them for me or I wouldn't have made it to a film downtown at 4:30pm. Did my part of Mogogoglobo on the way to the Metro station from the park.
