Orienteering race (sprint) 19:23 [4] 2.28 km (8:30 / km) +63m 7:28 / km
shoes: New Balance

Interscholastics - Sprint A

A fun course, and a very good warmup. I definitely appreciate having some kind of competitive course (ie not just a model) before the actual event so that I can iron out all the kinks in a real, under-pressure situation.

Definitely could have run it faster, but no real errors other than that. Route choices were also fairly straightforward, though I went a little out of my way to point 10. Glad I saw the shore route to 11.

29th place out of 98 runners, right behind Claudia and Alison - not too shabby!

Super-late night last night - the kind I usually pull about twice a semester when there's a large project I don't make time for during the week because I realize only time pressure will get me to do it effectively. This time it was a story for fiction writing.

The end result was usual level of perkiness up until about noon or 1 o'clock, then a superlative "crash", including throbbing headache and pulling my coat over my head on the bus ride to block out sound and light.

Ehhhhh. I'm a wimp when it comes to sleep deprivation. Which is why I don't do it to myself that often.

So I didn't work out yesterday. Instead I lazed around the house, ate tylenol, finished my work, and went to bed.

Swimming 32:00 [3] 1.05 km (30:29 / km)

I was going to go to the club for some elliptical work, but decided, nah, I can do elliptical at school during the week, why not swim? Well, it's been a long time since I last did laps (a year, maybe?) so I got tired really fast, had to take a lot of breaks, etc. I'm also really bad at breathing enough... and I'm sure my form is really wacky... but yeah, it was alright. Good to mix it up a little, but probably not as efficient a workout as the other stuff I do.

200 m breaststroke
200 m crawl
400 m alternating each lap
200 m backstroke
50 m butterfly (just for the heck of it)

Away in Blaine for a math competition yesterday and today, so no training. A shame, really. I don't like seeing three blank days in a row in my log. Bike tomorrow? Well, perhaps I don't have a whole hour to spare, but there'll be *something* at least.

(Attackpoint is SUCH a motivator! =D)
