Another crappy night trying to sleep. Should not have used my calories on wine. Wine keeps me awake and also leads to unnecessary candy eating. Wine is bad! No wine tonight.

Slept crappy last night. Wine is bad!
2 PM

Orienteering race (Wheaton Yellow) 19:57 [3] ** 1.96 km (10:11 / km) +45m 9:08 / km
shoes: Pink!! Ice Bugs

Garmin: 1.4 miles 38 m climb

I was so sure I had broken 10 min/k. Bummer (just a little).

Following the trend for 2010-11, there was another fine turnout for the QOC event - 186 starts (10 of these were second courses).

Just wanted to run and not think too hard but think a tiny bit. So, Yellow followed by White (both list as non-competitive in the results since I can't keep winning the Yellow course).

Cold day made a little better by being in the O' Mobile. Though it let me down a little today. When I wanted to start the car for some heat, I discovered the battery was dead. I had left the car in the Run position when I had lowered the back window. Thanks to Barry N for offering cables and Robert H for bringing a portable charger and getting me going again. Issue was perhaps related to another problem discovered that the fuse to put said back window back up was blown. I would have driven home with it that way, or made a ghetto wind block, but Nadim puzzled through checking the fuse and we got it working for now. Thank you Nadim! My core was COLD on the way home, and I can't imagine having driven with the window open.

Finally, a huge thank you to Roger for helping to unload the car.

Orienteering race (Wheaton White) 14:45 [3] ** 1.7 km (8:41 / km) +30m 7:58 / km
shoes: Pink!! Ice Bugs

Garmin: 1.15 miles 28 m climb

A really good day all the way around. With Heidi (and David) as the meet director, I knew things would be done well, and they were. I had help on the outside throughout the day, and people were a little more informed when they stepped up to the window to give their information.

And, when I came back from my courses, there wasn't a huge problem waiting for me! Though, I still need to figure out why the printer port keeps going to "unavailable." Unlike the last two meets, today we were able to give everyone splits, albeit a bit backdoor.

Day kind of got away from me for exercise. Goal this week if keeping off days to one day, no two days off in a row.

9 AM


Tummy upset last night.
2 PM

Running (GW "track") 21:15 [2] 2.05 mi (10:22 / mi)
shoes: NB 1064 Blue

Plan was for 30 minutes running, but I knew that would be a stretch, and it was, so I walked the rest. Lungs hurt, though in a good way, in a way. :)

Back at my starting point. I am thinking that the weight spiking up to 191 and dropping back down is reflective of a fake period vs. any real weight gain/loss.

I am trying to cut the leftover portions I eat at lunch in half, as well as the wine consumption (not that I drink wine at work). Doing well at work with little boxes of raisins and cranberries and drinking water. Need to get the sweets out of the house since I am cramming those down without much thought.
3 PM

Walking (GW "track") 31:00 [1] 2.1 mi (14:46 / mi)
shoes: Z Hiking Boots

From office (.3 miles 5:06) to paved track around football field (6 times in 337 332 330 326 328 326) and back to office (455). Wore what I had on - jeans, hiking boots, knit top. Felt conspicuous since it was near dismissal time and parents in cars were lined up in the pickup line. Shins hurt at first, but then they eased up. A little breezy, but really a beautiful crisp day at ~40 F. Glad I did something!
