orienteering 1:23:40 [4] **** 4.5 km (18:36 / km)

Middle. Sloppy race, huge mistake on first control caused by poor choice of process goals. Then the course was a lot longer than predicted, and I didn't have water (none along the routes I chose) or Gu (thought I'd finish under an hour). As my college coach would say, it was a good opportunity to 'callus my mind'.

But I wasn't thinking like an athlete for various reasons, so my mind didn't get much callusing. I maybe could've fixed this by talking more with Kelli (coach) about training, priorities, etc. before coming to CA, but maybe not. The long-term answer is just to figure out my priorities, training, etc., which is the main goal in my training plan.

Also, knee is magically better!!! It was feeling twingey yesterday, but today it felt perfect.

orienteering 20:00 [3] 2.0 km (10:00 / km)

Ran into Cristina in the parking lot of the map we went to. Crazy!

I feel like I got a good sense of what vegetation detail can be like in CA, how distinct the boundaries are, etc. For a few controls, I practiced the same things I practiced on the plane: quickly picking a route, planning my exit, finding a good place to read ahead, and going through the point smoothly.

At least on this map, Cristina said light green vs. white wasn't really distinguishable, and Ian said dark green vs. medium green wasn't that distinguishable.

Running (mostly hard surfaces) 15:00 [3] 1.5 mi (10:00 / mi)

To lab. Knee feels great so far!


Inflammation in my knee while walking around, but no sharp pain.

In other news, the start time gods were merciful—I'm almost the first starter in the first sprint on Sunday!!! Starting to get excited! And I might get to warm up with Tori on Friday:)

core/legs 8:00 [1]

Knee exercises. Felt good.

Running (mostly hard surfaces) 15:00 [3] 1.5 mi (10:00 / mi)

Knee hurt going down steps but was fine running on flat pavement.

Running (mostly trails/soft surfaces) 10:00 [3] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Right before we left for Boojum, I mysteriously had a sharp pain under my kneecap. It got better as I walked around a bit, so I put on my knee brace and got in the car. I was able to warm up with no real problem, but there were a few steps going down a hill where I had a sharp pain again, so I decided it was probably best not to run today. Yay for being careful!


Really confused about my knee. Ok now when walking around, but I can definitely feel some inflammation. Where did that come from??? Maybe my legs are just tired of running on ice and snow all the time.

Running (mostly hard surfaces) 55:00 [3] 5.5 mi (10:00 / mi)

Slowww. Calf muscles were sore. Maybe I should've run yesterday.
