Holy negative amortization, Batman!
This felt really easy and smooth on the way out. I thought I would push a little more on the way back, and did so.

Run warm up/down 4:57 [1] 0.5 mi (9:54 / mi)
shoes: Asics

twice around the block


left leg is really feeling beat up today. The ankle did not bother me during the course on Sunday. I did not use the Active Ankle since I wasn't sure these things are reversible (they must be, but I didn't want to risk it) but the tape job was fine.

Today, however, around work the ankle was tender.

Additionally, I somehow rammed my right knee into the back right of the other knee during the race. It is a real contusion and hurts a lot right now.

Orienteering race 58:20 [4] **** 7.2 km (8:06 / km) +185m 7:11 / km
ahr:147 max:157 spiked:9/16c shoes: VJ Spikes

French Creek North red.
A mixed bag.
Somehow after mummifying my ankles, I ran out of time to warmup. So I didn't. I think rather than cause physical impairment, this may have caused mental impairment. Or maybe something else was wrong.

I missed #1 although I ran across the feature (a patch of stony ground). I missed #2 to the tune of a couple miutes, #4 and #5. Then I just missed #15.

#2 and #5 were definitely my mistakes, but I'm not sure the other ones were. I on the right feature at #1. At #3, a tree fallen over the boulders the control was located on seemed to obscure the whole apparatus from where I was coming from. Then #15, on a platform on a flatish area was on the back lip of the platform, behind a big tree. I passed within 15 meters of that one.

In general, the controls were hung really low.

So, while I suppose some of this is my fault, I don't think it all is. Maybe I'm blind, but if you get so close to the control and can't see it, I think something is wrong.

Anyway, otherwise I had a good run. Te ankle didn't bother me much and I ran pretty fast.
