6 AM

Rowing Machine 22:30 [3] 5.0 km (4:30 / km)
slept:5.5 weight:163lbs shoes: 2012 merrell trail glove

Not pushing, just starting to get back in the habit.

Writing that made me think of my old Catholic school friend, Richie Aquilina. Endlessly entertaining, good spirited, full of gentle mischief. Quite a fine fellow. One day in 9th grade he asked, "Is it all right to kiss a nun?" Answer:

"Yes, as long as you don't get in the habit."
9 AM

Gym 50:00 [3]
shoes: 2012 merrell trail glove

4 back to back 5 minute AMRAP sessions. First session alternating 20 situps and 25 squats, then next session row 250 M and 10 burpees, then 20 KB swings and bear crawl one length of the gym, last session 10 pullups, 10 pushups. Knee is increasingly troublesome. Much rolling called for and some application of the stick.
12 PM

Gym 2:00:00 [3]

I don't usually log yard work, but so much stone shoveling was involved in the driveway cleanup exercise today that I thought it would have been an ideal crossfit workout. Too bad I didn't have the class here.
6 PM

Orienteering race 24:49 [3] ***
spiked:12/12c shoes: 2012 MT101 Green

Corn Maze Orienteering Classic Course. I'll write this down as spikes of the 12 controls, because I didn't really have trouble finding any of them. Just some sub-optimal routes and moving very slowly. The only time I was lost at all was on the way from 12 to the finish (definitely the most difficult leg). While I fumbled a bit on the way out of 12, I recognized the long N-S stretch up the farmer's hip when I got to it, so not too much trouble there.

The map . Forgot my GPS, so no route.

Orienteering 5:44 [3] ***
spiked:6/6c shoes: 2012 MT101 Green

Corn Maze Sprint Championships. Again, no trouble finding any controls, just slow execution, suboptimal routes, particularly on 4 and 6, I think. The map with no route shown.

Orienteering race 4:33 [3]
shoes: 2012 MT101 Green

Corn maze relay championships. This was seeded so that the better performers were running leg 2. Very clever. Mass start in the maze was excellent. Much running around and bumping into each other, much following, for better or worse. I went too far left on the way to 1, ended up behind quite a few, I think 5th. Saw the leg developing well to 2 and sprinted by the group, except for Camilla, but then she missed the spiral so I was first at that point. Got stuck in two cul de sacs leaving 2, though, so lost some places, and apparently 3rd at 3. Just methodical going to 4, 3rd now behind Camilla and Steve, both of whom missed that 5 was outside the maze, leaving me an opening, so I was able to tag off to Dean first. Alas, Dean got swallowed up by speed young Italian guys on the second leg, and our team finished 8th, I think. The leg 2 map is here. Leg 1 was the same, except the finish was after #5.
