Flashlights (xkcd, again)

Reminds me of some folks' headlamps during Night O. Mine's still a dinky one that barely lights up a few steps ahead of me....
11 AM

Walking (paved) 53:05 [3] 5.39 km (9:51 / km) +107m 8:57 / km

Malden Bridge "balloon" with an extra side road thrown in. Temp in low 50s, breezy, with a few light sprinkles at one point.

Pilates class (bands) 50:00 [1]

Stretchy bands used today. No post-Pilates exercise today...hips tight and I think I could use a rest. Maybe I'll walk tomorrow if it doesn't rain, then O at Hurd/WCOC on Sunday.

Linguistics (today's xkcd comic)

Exerc. Class 50:00 [1]

Another class with some hard stuff in it. Goblet squats are not for me (particularly my knees). I can do a few but then they start to hurt. Sitting in a chair and then getting back up are also not for my knees (down is okay; getting back up quickly, multiple times in a row, isn't). The knee lift series was just long and hard and good for me.

Pilates class (weights) 50:00 [1]

A lot of the warmup involved being in plank or down dog. Tough on both hands/wrists and shoulders. Felt good to stop. :-)
11 AM

Walking (track) 34:01 intensity: (3:39 @1) + (30:22 @3) 2.2 mi (15:28 / mi)
shoes: Sauc.Shad-6000#8-2014H

Distracted in the first several laps trying to get my iPod settings correct (pushed something to make the speed fast then slowed it down too much, and took awhile to solve the problem). Thus the second lap was faster than the first one this time. 15:21/15:01/3:39

Adductors after, but no pulldowns or leg presses because those machines were in use.

If any of my log readers know of a way to get .FIT or other files from the Garmin 220 to AP without going through my computer, I'd love to learn it. I've already enabled Bluetooth to download files from the watch to Garmin Connect on my Samsung phone, but can't figure out how to get from there to AP. There's no download option either or via the iPad (with iOS 6).

Once I get a new computer I won't necessarily need this method but I'd like to find out if it's possible. I've been having problems with the PC freezing when the Garmin is connected via USB so I transfer data Nd charge th Garmin externally.

9 AM

Exerc. Class 45:00 [1]

Got there a few minutes late so missed some of the warmup stretches.

Good series of slow aerobics, faster aerobics, weights, and abs plus stretching at the end, all accompanied by the Jenster's chatter.

Orienteering race 1:54:36 [3] *** 5.22 mi (21:57 / mi) +104m 20:40 / mi
shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

Green course at NEOC's Baldwin Hill, set by Magnus. Nominal distance 4.9 km, climb not specified but abundant. Temps near 50 and sunnier than yesterday.

Slow and cautious in the woods because of dry slippery leaves--and I navigated to everything just fine (very tentative in some places but I did not get lost)--but not cautious enough. In a flat wide open section of the map between controls 5 and 6 I managed to trip myself (stick under the leaves?) and land on my face. Fortunately it was nowhere near as bad as some O face-plant stories I've read, but I lost a few layers of skin right above my lip (and bruised it when it hit teeth on the inside), and acquired a major scratch on the right lens of my glasses right in the focal area. They're useless in rainy conditions anyway (when I rely heavily on my magnifier) so I may have to do without unless I come up with a substitute. Better the glasses than my eye, and hey...I didn't damage a knee this time!

Looks like the first 9 controls were the same on Red and Green which explains the faster runners who passed me here and there (Ian early on; J-J later, twice). Stopped for 30-40 seconds in the area SW of control 5 to show a lost orienteer "about" where we were.

Fastest time on the course was 91 minutes, so maybe it was a bit long (or steep) for this terrain, but I enjoyed the navigation challenges anyway.

NOTE: added GPS track, but it's not complete; watch logged 5.22 km but starts after control 7 so maybe it didn't find satellites until then. So who knows if the distance is accurate--I suspect it's just a guess by the watch.
