Brown course at Mt Tom by Phil B., 3.8km, 200m climb; sunny and upper 40s at start. Lots of climb, as advertised. No HR strap; just the wrist sensor.

We'd driven partway up last night, staying south of Albany; and did the rest of the drive this morning. We saw 48 and sun most of the way over until reaching the Westfield River valley where there was a lot of fog in the valley and lower temps...down to near 40. I was hoping the temp would be closer to 50 or so; it got there eventually, by the time we left the park.

We had a very nice conversation with PG as we were registering, hearing about his experience and speech on Thursday...also chatted with J-J later about the Utah parks he and Nancy had just returned from visiting.

Spiked them all, almost; I did check out an incorrect boulder near the last control but knew it was along the stream. I didn't see many other orienteers out there; Glen and Ken near the start, a woman with a pink raincoat at 7 and 8, and a fellow (with an accent, and wearing shorts) who was surprised to keep seeing me at controls that were on both his (Red) course and mine. They ran out of Brown maps before I started and repurposed a Red map (crossing off the irrelevant controls and adding one different one)...which apparently caused a shortage of red maps later on. :-D

Quick walk around the community. Upper 50s, cloudy, and breezy.

Ignore the HR looks pretty wonky.

Just muscle tenderness near the injection site. A bit tired last night but otherwise not much reaction to the booster.


Possibly saw a bobwhite (quail) near the edge of one of the fields I rode in. At first I thought pheasant because it had white at the throat, but it didn't look big enough.

Biking 1:10:21 intensity: (2:35 @0) + (10:24 @1) + (18:30 @2) + (29:52 @3) + (9:00 @4) 7.84 km (8:59 / km) +112m 8:23 / km

Went biking on dirt trails at Marsh Creek State Park/Reservoir north of Downingtown. We parked at the boat launch on the west side of the lake so I could explore trails to the north (which were classified as more green than blue) while Glen rode along the lake to the blue trails east of the dam. Mid to upper 60s and mostly sunny, so short sleeves worked well.

Had to walk the bike up some of the hills (especially earlier when I wasn't as warmed up), but I did manage to safely descend a trail rated black, though I should have taken the right fork at the crazy rocks (I walked it through the rockiness).

More to explore! And I'd go down Crazy Rocks again and the one that extends it to the east.

One fall (not a complete fall; more of a collapse to one side) due to a poorly chosen line on a trail descent, where I hit my left knee on a rock and have a nice scrape there kneeling for me for awhile.

Around the neighborhood. Mid 60s as the sun set.

(Don't believe the heart rate spike.)

Brown X Long NRE at Rodney Scout Reservation near Elk Neck SP in Maryland. Nominally 3.9 km, 140m climb; courses today were set by Wyatt R. Some map updates were made to areas near controls, but not as many as I would have liked. Mid 50s.

AP shows 26 minutes of error...~19 of that was going in circles looking for #5 in the wrong reentrant system on the hillside, about 150m west of where I should have been. This area was mapped as light green, but large green leaves remaining on the many of trees in that area reduced visibility; still, I should have corrected sooner.

The rest of the time lost was at #2, where both the charcoal platform and the flag were hidden (tucked in) behind a large unmapped rootstock mostly surrounded by greenbriar; #3, where I didn't read the description and searched the reentrant before realizing I wanted the spur next to it; and #7, where I was too far south and relocated from the road/manmade object (signpost) next to the road. I did pick up a mylar balloon along the way and tucked it into the trash bag at the water stop there (so bonus points for my good deed).

I ended up 3rd of 5, well behind Janet F., and 20+ minutes behind Sandy; ahead of Donna and Sue. 2nd at the sprint behind Janet; 1st in the middle (after Janet got frustrated and dnf'ed). Prizes were bakery-made cookies (triangle-shaped with either orange or white icing) for yesterday and small jars of honey for top 3 today.

Nice weekend; cool temps but no rain make for almost ideal conditions.
