I apparently didn't read my compass much today, at least on those controls where I made the largest mistakes (4 and 8).
11 AM

Orienteering race 2:02:55 [3] *** 6.0 km (20:29 / km) +302m 16:22 / km
spiked:9/12c slept:6.5 shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

Green course at Mt Tom, set by Phil Bricker--thanks, Phil. Nominal stats are 4.8 km, 250 m climb. For me, in this terrain it was slow going. Mostly sunny and about 80 (and buggy!).

Fine through the first three controls, but then after leaving trail bend on the way to four I drifted too far right. Fortunately there was someone punching a control on the formline knoll 150m south of #4, and he was kind enough to let me know where we were. [If I'd gone straight to 4, though, I wouldn't have seen the 4-5 pink lady slipper flowers blooming on that other spur. :-)] Stayed pretty close to the line to 5 and got to what I figured was the end of the cliff line, but didn't see a flag, so looked around a bit before spotting it on the other side of a tree from where I had been standing...d'oh.

Left of big cliffs to 6, and carefully dropped down the hill to 7 trying not to go too far. Then 8. I'm not sure exactly where I crossed the stream (I was hoping to hit close to the stream junction, but was probably a bit lower*), and I saw a huge chunk of rock 50 m or so away (5 contours high?), but nothing on the map jumped out at me as "huge rock/cliff" perhaps because of simplification??? (cliffs just shown as lines are actually huge in the terrain) so I wandered a bit before getting to a small reentrant (with a streamer! But no flag) 100 S of the saddle. Then I headed north in hopes of seeing the large cliff pointing up toward the saddle. Which I did, and others in the area, so I figured I was close. I'm sure it was on top of that huge hill/chunk of rock I'd seen earlier. Figure I lost at least 10 minutes, probably more...

Okay on the rest, though I was getting tired of the climb-down-to-climb-up-again by that point (10). Good climbing exercise (which I'm not getting enough of otherwise). The mosquitoes were annoying (I had used repellent with deet on neck, ears, and arms), trying to bite through my gloves and socks, but I survived mostly unscathed.

*The bland hillside SW of 7 had a number of cliff faces large enough to be mapped but perhaps glossed over when the map was redone for the last A meet?

Pilates class (bands) 55:00 [1]

Stretchy bands in use. Muscles in upper body still tired (not so much sore as fatigued and needing rest), whether from Tuesday's class or yesterday's extended plank I'm not sure. Sore from ribs to neck. I limited upper body band use. Legs tired too. I don't think I'm coming down with anything but will monitor this tiredness.

11 AM

Walking (indoor track) 25:49 [2] 1.5 mi (17:13 / mi)
shoes: Sauc.Shad-6000#8-2014H

Not really in the mood to walk but Glen wanted to swim so I walked moderately around the track (not a slow stroll but not pushing it either).

10 pulldowns

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

This felt hard for some reason (no energy)...maybe too close to breakfast (8am) and body was still digesting?

Held a high plank for 1:45, then an elbow plank for 0:25 and another high plank for 0:30.

Hips were very tight during stretching (from yesterday?).
3 PM

Walking 36:00 [2]
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

Pilates class (weights) 55:00 [1]

Nice workout with weights thrown in, and good side leg torture too.

11 AM

Walking (indoor track) 33:34 intensity: (3:35 @1) + (29:59 @3) 2.0 mi (16:47 / mi)
shoes: Sauc.Shad-6000#8-2014H

Miles in 14:57 and 15:02

Then a dozen quick pulldowns.
3 PM

Walking 18:30 [2] 1.0 mi (18:30 / mi)
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

To a neighbor's yard and back to visit the old cemetery behind their house (gravestones from 1777 to 1842) and take photographs to upload to FindAGrave. I actually hadn't noticed this cemetery before this spring even though we've lived here over 30 years.

I have filled photo requests by others, added some not requested (because I was there), and made a couple of photo requests myself, for cemeteries in Pennsylvania. Fun.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Warm class today (fans going but no A/C). Part of the aerobics section involved us picking a piece of paper with a particular movement written on it, then she called on us one by one to say what it was, and she cobbled it all into a routine. We made it a bit more interesting by demonstrating rather than telling her our particular move (all of us being old timers around The Firm exercise studio).
