weight:115.2lbs shoes: Salomon XT Wings 3

Ridley Brown Course

Everything smooth except #4...thought i could get to building without using trail, briars ate me up. had to backtrack and during the frustration, i mixed up which building i was at and took a bearing off of the wrong building, leading to not finding the control. back to the building to re-route and then realized there was no paved road and realized what i had done. probably about a 10 min mistake? i don't know. i believe some of this mistake was from an overconfidence at thinking i knew where i was without looking at the map.

took some of hughmac4's advice about rough bearings and it really helped. will employ methods further. also need to work on my admin of handling map and looking ahead to next control - i did ok w this but there were a few times i found myself standing near the control before going off to the next one.

things i did right - ran hard downhill using gravity, especially to #7 before the first road.

very enjoyable day without that one heartbreak. great to see so many people out in the woods, especially family members.

although-- dad - did you overdo it today? :) i liked when you took my map and said,'oh i'll just do a few controls' (though you were fully dressed in O garb, i should have seen it coming) and then returned 58 minutes later having beat me only 7 weeks out of a major surgery. this kind of reminds me of the time you took my SAT practice course and got a perfect score, and then told me how easy it was. still -- great to see you looking so chipper! both you and hughmac4 - wow. you are good at this.

all in all, i come away from today feeling that there is still so far to go, and that it will be an enjoyable journey!

(except when i just saw the final results i was freshly wounded !!)

Working at the flower shop today


ok, an even bigger brain fart.

i lost the house key tonight, not locking myself out but thinking that i might have to have the locks changed because i was sure someone had maliciously taken the key. i was blaming either the untrustworthy dogwalker or the madman mailman for stealing the key from the mailbox where i put it (for the dogwalker.)

turns out, the key had fallen into my bag as i was sorting through the mail before bringing it in.

but an hour went by where i was thinking someone had taken the key...the key that opens all doors in our new house, and there are no deadbolts. surely the key thief would be back for me tonight, to steal my garmin watch and then murder me. so i called the college (they own property,) and they were ready to send locksmiths to change out the locks - tonight if i wanted. i decided to wait til morning and go sleep at my parents house. i hid the garmin watch, that was all i really cared enough about to hide. then as i was packing up my bag, presto. the key. what an idiot.

what is it with this damn key? this damn brain?? i need to start doing mental pushups or something. this is so unlike me!!

Walk (streets) 25:00 [2] 1.2 mi (20:50 / mi)

dogwalk - locked myself out of my house this morning with no phone. brandon took spare key with him on the road, so walked to parents house and got key. luckily sis was there and drove me home.

feeling worse than yesterday, head full of snot. that's why i'm counting this as it will likely be my only exercise of the day, unless i feel good enough for yoga later.

NOTE it turns out the key was here all along. seriously need a new brain. one not full of snot....

Yoga 30:00 [2]

gentle yoga. even this makes me feel sicker.
