map hiking 3:41:58 [3] 0.99 mi (3:44:15 / mi) +72m 3:02:49 / mi

A second day of streamering in the Water Gap. Garmin went all funky shutting off recording after about an hour but collecting the total time nonetheless.

Climb today was crazy - a quick look says about 400m. It's a rogaine; gratuitous climb is totally acceptable. Had 6 hilltops and 3 stream bends today.

Feel pretty good. I'm sore to be sure, but the hip/leg issues I was having two weeks ago at BAOC seem to be almost gone. Wonder what the physical therapist will have to say tomorrow. I really hope I didn't overdo it, but it was another glorious day out there. I totally overdressed to start, but took off all the extra layers at the first control. Used both hiking poles again and was glad I had them in a few places.

Had dinner with Dennis and Emily on the way home. It makes the long drive up to the Water Gap not so bad being able to stop and see them at about the half-way point.

map hiking 2:20:00 [3]

Started putting out streamers for the rogaine. Decided that I should probably get started on this so there is time for someone or someones to vet and since I'm still nursing an injury I don't want to have to spend 8 hours at a time in the woods to get it done. Used today as a test to see if I could handle the terrain. I figure it will take me about 20 hours total to streamer all the controls and 5 or 6 easier days makes more sense now. Hopefully I'll be sufficiently healed so I can get the controls out in fewer days when it's time for the actual event.

Hip/leg sore but not any worse than it's been and better than it was a few weeks ago. Practiced tightening the abs a lot! The true test will be to see if it's worse tomorrow.

Woods are gorgeous although they'll be a bit thicker by June 5. Some great views - all my controls today were hilltops!

Great new purchase: bifocal safety glasses that are tinted but not very dark so wearing them today which was quite cloudy (several brief flurries even) was not an issue. They worked really well for protecting my eyes and keeping the wind out and letting me read the map at the same time. Will have to try them during an actual race and in the rain and things like that, but sure did love them today!

strength & stretching 30:00 [1]

A collection of random PT sessions this week so far, both at the PT place and at home.

I can definitely see progress.

I also learned which muscles in my abdomen to contract to make it so my leg/hip joint doesn't hurt as much.
