Running as part of the Boot Camp for Women sessions I signed up for - month of July - up and at the local high school by 5:50. Run was okay, but had to walk up the long hill. Legs dead from yesterday.

Orienteering (Ridley Creek Sprint 1) 39:46 [3] *** 2.6 km (15:18 / km) +95m 12:56 / km
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6 S10

The first of the DVOA Independence Day Sprints at Ridley Creek. Legs dead for this one - thought I would do better since I was freshest. Wore shorts and running shoes. Long pants and O shoes wold have been better.
Lost time on 4 and 9, and really messed up 10.

Orienteering (Ridley Creek Sprint 2) 31:05 [4] *** 2.8 km (11:06 / km) +75m 9:47 / km
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Didn't go out first on this one. Ron W was up ahead of me, so I gave him a cushion of 1:09 min then went and hunted him down. It was fun. He fumbled on 2 and 6, so he was slightly ahead. I fumbled on 6 but found it first. Ended up tied.

Orienteering (Willows Sprint 3) 37:38 [4] *** 3.24 km (11:37 / km) +95m 10:08 / km
shoes: Silva K80 1

Got lost going to this site. Well, I got lost going to the Ridley as well. Just one of those frustrating driving days...
Got to Willows after others were out, so I hustled so I could be back to relieve Sandy. Lower expectations resulted in a pretty clean run. The two that most people had trouble with, I lucked into.

Orienteering (Willows Sprint 3 (in reve) 39:47 [3] *** 3.24 km (12:17 / km) +95m 10:43 / km
shoes: Silva K80 1

This was the 1st Willows sprint in reverse order. Did it with Heidi since we were both pooped and she only started 20 seconds behind me. Enjoyable but exhausting day.

Biking (W&OD bike trail) 1:18:00 [1] 13.5 mi (5:47 / mi)

Had resigned myself to a wasted afternoon waiting for Roger's new treadmill to be delivered, but the guys showed up about 25 minutes into the 2-6 pm time period. ..yeah!!

Decided 3 days of pavement running wouldn't be a good idea, so on the bike. Out and back on the trail. Wasted about 4 minutes waiting for lights since the usual bypass was unpassable because the heavy storms last night flooded Four Mile Run.

Good ride. Of, yeah, I made it all the way up the hill at home without stopping!!

Running/Walking (Wakefield HS Track) 55:00 [2] 4.6 mi (11:57 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6 S10

Ran down to the track and then around and around. Actually walked some of the arounds. Lap time in lane 6: 310 (from house) 248 248 256 254 405 (walk) 245 249 350 (w) 246 352 (w) 239 347 (w) 238 350 (w) 236 445(walk home). A little slow but didn't have any breathing issues today. Remembered to take 2 hits before I went out. Sometimes I do one and while waiting for a minute to pass, I get side tracked and forget...

Didn't have the 3 candy bars like yesterday, so had 4 Advil instead - both this morning and this evening.

Weight is still a disappointing 193 - possibly related to my big Big KitKat addiction. Situps 51.

Running (Neighborhood) 32:30 [2] 3.0 mi (10:50 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Worked the last 2 evenings replacing the walk belt on Roger's treadmill. It didn't solve the problem. Thought I wouldn't get out this evening - what with the heat, the rain potential, dinner in my tummy, and just about any other excuse I could come up with. But my repair frustrations needed to be burned off, so at 8 pm I headed out the door. No Advil, only 1 puff of my asthma medication, and I left the water at home since I didn't expect to go far. Did better than I expected. Only walked .3 of the first 3.3 miles. Stopped for water at the storage facility which I have the entry code to. Breathing very ragged at the end of the running.

Walking (Neighborhood) 29:00 [1] 2.0 mi (14:30 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Walked around some to make it an hour total. Pushed as hard as I could without running. Wind was picking up and heat wasn't much of a factor. Glad to get a workout in today - despite the fact that dinner was "repeat"edly reminding me that it was only two hours ago.
