9 AM

Running (dirt) warm up/down (gravel path) 8:53 [3] 0.84 mi (10:32 / mi) +1m 10:30 / mi

Warmed up around first loop of the "trail" race at Halfmoon town park. The gravel path was a pretty nice surface to run on; not dirt, not paved. Gorgeous weather, bright and sunny with temps in low 60s to start. This is a fundraiser for Mother Theresa Academy which we happened to see in the local road running magazine. Maybe others are saving themselves for the Mother's Day 5k in Schenectady tomorrow? :-)

Added FR track.
Shoes = older NB 704s (which they haven't made for years) that I dug out of my closet that are in better shape than the 706s that I currently use.

Running (dirt) race 31:01 [5] 4.99 km (6:13 / km) +5m 6:11 / km

Very happy with my time; wasn't sure I had 10:00/mi pace in me still, but I guess the occasional intervals helped. Also helps that the course was basically flat with a good surface. No hills to fight. :-).

2 of 3 F51-60, 38 of 67 overall; fastest time was relatively slow, 18:38

Added FR track.
Race time temp was probably mid 60s. The day warmed up to over 80 by mid-afternoon; about 78 when we left the park around 11:30.

(rest day)

Local 5k "trail" race tomorrow (actually, a gravel path, not really a trail) in Halfmoon, NY; last-minute signup

10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Using elastic bands (the wide, flat kind). I did a bit of extra stretching before warmup, as I tweaked my back a little at exercise class yesterday, which made it hard to sleep on one side last night. Felt better after class though, so that was the right thing to do.
11 AM

Walking (treadmill) 25:00 [2]
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

Didn't want to do anything too stressful because my back was still a bit tight, so just a bit of walking at low incline (no more than 2.5%).

Adductors, pulldowns, and some leg presses.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

"Eve's 5-5-5 workout": Step, aerobics, weights, stretching.

Walking 26:00 [1]
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 #6 - H

Time an estimate. Walked to the P.O. to mail a couple of things, and then as far as the creek to see the water level (a bit higher than it has been, with 1"+ of rain the past couple of days), then back home. 1.5 mi

Saw Air Force 1 (on TV) land in Albany about 11:48 am. Couldn't actually see the plane until it was practically on the ground because of fog, but the cameras were tracking it as it came in. President is visiting the NanoCollege. Pilates instructor's husband in the FBI locally and expects to meet president.
10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

No tools today. Right hip tight and twingy. Back of left heel got a prickly feeling during planks/stretching, so something to watch. Didn't think I'd enjoy running or elliptical so opted to do a short erg instead plus my strength/PT machines.

11 AM

Fitness equipment (erging) 7:38 [2]
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

1500m, next to an older fellow who did a bit less (about 7min, 1300+m). Worked up a sweat by the end, thus the intensity of 2.

He walks with a hunched back so probably doesn't get the full ROM.

Adductors, pulldowns, leg presses

Every major's terrible
(fixed broken link)

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

No stepping today, which is probably just as well. Good warmup and floor routine, then weights (how'd they get so heavy?!) and stretching (ah!!).

9 AM

Hiking warm up/down 15:00 [2]
shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Walk to start, half on road (downhill) and half to the top of a small mountain (compared to some others around.

In mid 50s and still mostly cloudy but with promises of openings here and there.

Orienteering race 1:45:30 [4] **** 4.6 km (22:56 / km) +180m 19:11 / km
spiked:5/10c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

FR=6.557km, 282m climb -- no wonder it felt like a Green course

Brown Long on Turkey Mountain map, from Camp Shea on Mine Torne Rd. Happy with my navigation for the most part except close to controls (1, 2, 5, 8, 9). Kept close of track of where I was in the two long legs (just messed up in/near the circle). Sloppy route choice to 6 and 7 but found them okay. A long day and tired legs now. Good to see everyone!

Stopped for Frappuccinos and a rest, then later for beer and sandwiches at Keegan Ale in Kingston. Detoured to Ravena to check out a park (Joralemon Town Park) Jim H told me about at today's start with an extensive frisbee golf course and neat wildflowers. Nice setting with lots of limestone outcrops, so if you're into that, and near Albany, it's a neat place (even though it says "town residents and guests only" ... they probably don't check if it's not really busy, especially if you're not using the pavilion, though out-of-state license plates might be suspect).

And ended with ice cream cones from Friendly's. Back to the real diet tomorrow. :-)
