strength & stretching 45:00 [3]

Another solid workout with Kelly, my trainer. For some reason my balance was a little wonky today.

map hiking 45:00 [3]

Hard to say what this was: putting out controls for the Norristown event, but I just drove around, parked, put out a couple controls, drove to a new parking spot, put out a couple more. It took about 90 minutes to get them all out. Once that was done then the direction signs had to go up and then there was all the standing around doing registration and start and then working epunch. Had enough helpers not to have to pick up controls but had to clean up everything so it was go, go, go from about 3:30 until 8:00. But once again, we were packed up and out of the park only a few minutes past 8.

People seemed to like the courses and there weren't too many complaints about the map. There was lots of chatter about route choices and missing turns and confusing buildings so I think everyone had fun. Norristown is a unique venue and I'm so glad we were allowed back in. We need to get the map updated to ISSOM standards.

We had over 50 starts which is great. I wasn't sure how much attendance we'd have at these but so far it's been super.

Around the meadow loop in the 90 degree heat with Sandy. It was okay in the trees but we were wilting in the open sections.

strength & stretching 45:00 [3]

Really good session, at least if measured by how much sweat was produced!

Stitches still annoying but didn't seem to affect the workout.

map hiking 1:00:00 [1]

Another couple hours at Ft. Washington trying to get the trail network correct. I've given up trying to get the vegetation to be very precise and am just worrying about getting the trails and the mowed places as close as I can. I've covered about half the park but definitely the half where most of my courses will go. Not sure how much more time I can or am willing to spend after I draft all of what I covered today.

I think I'll do some course design next and limit myself to further updates to where my courses go. I enjoy or at least don't dislike doing this kind of work but it was really hot out today and I was toast after two hours.

Wandering around Ft. Washington SP doing map updates. This one will be worse than Norristown. They've put in a disc golf course and mowed all sorts of new trails and let others get all overgrown. I've only covered a small section and it's taking a really long time doing the drafting.


Stitches really, really itch. And it's still sore - sort of like a bruise.

A slowish - on purpose - hike around the meadow loop with Sandy, neither one of us feeling up to more.
