West Point National Meet - Long - Green Y

Problem locating a trail right after the start, so did more slogging through brush than I should have, but disaster struck going to C2. I thought I had a reasonable route, but I accidentally got on top of some cliffs instead of below them and it was green slash up there, then the next stretch had all white to the right of a swamp, below the hill to the right, but it was anything but white, especially with my limited mobility - I had to do some crawling and was very slow, but the biggest problem was my own fault: I went just left of C6 and thought I had set my compass to take me to C2, and kept checking it but my tracks show me going straight the wrong way. Recovered from a swamp that had me hung up a bit, but I knew exactly where I had to go at least.

Missed C3 to the right, but at least my pace count was spot on and I was able to correct. C8 was slow due to some unnecessary climb. C11 was also slow, but mostly due to a long route as I was just taking the path of least resistance to the road.

At least I was doing well after the race - no hip soreness at all and I was able to walk surprisingly normally, unlike on the way to the start when several people asked if I was OK - so i guess, it just takes 3 hours to get warmed up!

Walking 10:00 [1] 0.5 mi (20:00 / mi)

Walk to the start, included just a couple of brief jogging stretches.

West Point National Meet - Middle - Green Y

Big error on C9, but I can't remember the details without the map. Other than that, I was fairly clean but missed C3 left and had to recover.

Walking warm up/down 25:00 intensity: (20:00 @1) + (5:00 @2) 1.5 mi (16:40 / mi)

Long walk to the start, which was half jog, half walk. Very long technical walk from the finish with my hip acting up.

West Point National Meet - Sprint - Green

Well, this was a disaster. My legs were pretty fried from the morning, so I was slow, and I ran right to C5, and right by it, leading to a ridiculous search process. Was distracted by the wrong control on the way to C10, but clean and very slow after that.

Went up to Emery to check some of the new Map Hike control locations. Legs (well hip) are still feeling the effects of last weekend's races.

(rest day)

Drove from work to Luke's baseball game, then we had to get the lawn mowed - I did some then got gas while Chris took over, then picked up sticks, which is a very challenging exercise for me, but I couldn't log it. By dark, it was time to eat instead of going to the Y (not ready to run today).

Strength 5:00 [1]
(rest day)

Had planned to go to Emery Park to fix the control that I had misplaced, but Patty had already done it, so went with the day off instead.

Did 20 minutes of hip exercises. Discovered a weakness doing a new exercise (leg lift while lying on side) - can barely get surgical side up in the air, so I'll need to work that.
