Walking (Pavement) 2:30:00 [0]
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 #6 - H

Albany I Spy. See if interested. I probably won't submit the answers unless I get a chance to go to the city and find the 4 (out of 14) pictured locations that we never found.

NJ kids were up for the weekend and I'd seen this listed in Thursday's paper. One of the locations was an Albany restaurant with a good draft-beer list where we ended up for dinner. A nice walk on a comfortable late spring day.

Mike Eglinski (spike) linked to this 1968 WOC map on Twitter.

1:25000 scale! I wonder if the map was really all white woods, or if there was a lot more that wasn't included on the map. I wonder what the gray screen is.


Before this year, I'd never heard of the yellowwood tree. But this spring we orienteered in Yellowwood state park in Indiana, saw a specimen in Albany's Washington Park last weekend (though I hadn't identified it yet), and one in a treeline near a pharmacy in Chatham... I plucked one of the distinctive sprigs and looked it up in my tree ID book. Here's more. Very sweet smelling flowers, too. Now I know.
10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Using elastic bands. Good leg workout but I likely tweaked something in my right arm because it didn't like the pulldown machine later (elbow area).
11 AM

Strength 8:00 [0]

Legs felt tired from yesterday's hike/jog, so I thought I'd try the rowing machine again because it focuses more on upper body with some legs thrown in too. That went well for about 30 seconds when I got a sharp pain in my left calf muscle, outside. Stopped immediately so as not to cramp/pull/whatever. Did adductors (12@80/12@75), leg presses, and tried to do pulldowns but failed there too.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Tiring class today. Step+strength for 20 minutes, plus weights, warm up, and abs+cooldown/stretching.
2 PM

Walk/Jog (trail) 1:17:00 [2]
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

At Hand Hollow after working at the elementary library. gorgeous weather so I couldn't pass it up (70 and mostly sunny). Jogged some on the downhills, but some trails were quite muddy and other parts were rooty, so I didn't jog it all. Saw the same small blue flowers (birds-eye speedwell) in the field (yellow trail) as at Camp Pinnacle in similar habitat. Walked all the uphills. A few mappable boulders noted but none are 1m or more.

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Class with weights (used sporadically). My bruised knee from the Rogaine is better but still can't do planks and down-dogs because of my feet. Fortunately they felt better (than my hip) so I was able to...
11 AM

Walk/Jog (indoor track) 31:07 intensity: (4:15 @1) + (15:15 @2) + (11:37 @3) 2.25 mi (13:50 / mi)
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

...walk/jog on the track. I thought of maybe doing a bit of walking then trying the elliptical, but the other joggers inspired me to try that, and it didn't feel too bad alternating 1/2 miles. It will be some time before I feel up to intervals again, but this is a start. (Added a new category for part walk, part jog.) Quarter mile cooldown.

Strength 7:00 [0]

Pulldowns (8), leg presses at 90#, and adductors at 75#

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Stiff this morning; it took the entire class before my right hip area started to loosen up. Still a bit sore but not unbearably so.

I picked up a wildflower along the path from Red's control 13-14 yesterday to try to identify. Pretty sure it's a bird's eye speedwell. Blue has faded already (I stuck it in my map case).

Orienteering race 2:07:08 [3] *** 5.25 mi (24:12 / mi) +206m 21:35 / mi
spiked:10/14c slept:6.5 shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Red course, SL 5.2 km, at Camp Pinnacle/Thacher by wwk. Temp in low-mid 80s and sunny to start, but I stayed mostly in the woods so it wasn't bad. Humid and thick woods slowed movement and visibility. Overshot a few controls and had to come back, often slowly. Got my money's worth? Janet Findlay made it around in 2:01 and change, so she adapted better and/or ran more. Nice challenge; I think I would have enjoyed this more in late March or early April, before the honeysuckle all leafed out. :-)
Overshot 2, 5, 6, 11. Quickest recovery was on 11.

Forgot my FR today (it's always something), but Glen had his spare (with cracked screen, but it still records just fine). Will download later.

Some thunder around, but the water stop at the top of the hill above the camp at Pinnacle showed me the storm was well off to the north and east.

EDIT: Added FR track. I wasn't where I thought I was between 11 and 12; no wonder nothing matched up until I got to the reentrant on the hill SW of 12. :-) Lost 4 minutes on #2, 9 minutes on 5, 3 minutes on 6 (which looks to have been accurately placed though not accurately mapped in the area; I stopped just short -- probably couldn't see the flag for the downed branches in the reentrant...), and 2 minutes on 11. I have some other issues with the map on the east side of County 303.
Quick Route

4 PM


We're at a Starbucks near Univ at Albany that used to be a Mexican restaurant, so it's one of the larger ones around. Even so, it's packed, with no extra tables and only a few empty chairs at some of them.
