(injured) (rest day)

The worst day for the ankle yet, in terms of swelling. The whole foot to the toes was puffy.

This was probably because I hadn't done any wrapping, elevating, icing, etc. in the past 24 hours. So, a rest day was called for.

Rowing Machine 40:00 [2]

Easy row in the morning.

Thursday Aug 28, 2008 #

Rowing Machine 1:05:00 intensity: (2:00 @1) + (30:00 @2) + (30:00 @3) + (3:00 @5)

TNT day, but no running. Harvey and Eric kept it real.

Easy row, but last bit was for power. Did a bunch of power 20s (30 seconds on, minute off) at 45 spm and 1:39-1:45. The form was lacking but it was nice to get up and down the slide that fast.

Rowing Machine 1:05:00 intensity: (5:00 @1) + (40:00 @2) + (15:00 @3) + (5:00 @4)

Easy row. Ankle definitely bothering me at the beginning, but not by the end. Last 10 minutes felt great. Easy breathing and smooth. 5 minutes of cool down at the end.

Orienteering race 1:26:36 [3] **** 9.1 km (9:31 / km) +325m 8:04 / km
shoes: Olways

COC 2008 Long.

A good race. Wore my sunglasses with the yellow lenses and a hat. This worked well through half the race, when the vegetation became so dense that I had to slow way down, and the fogging got worse, causing a downward spiral. I eventually took them off and stuffed them in my pants. Later in the course I got a stick in the eye, cutting my contact and really impairing my vision. Then, at the end of this slog, wanting to finish, not able to see, I do a real bad number on my left ankle leaving a trail, running through some tall grass. Was able to jog in, but at what cost?

Anyway, the orienteering was quite good. I love this stuff. It was varied. The first control was almost too mcuh (as it was the day before) but I think the course was fair. It was tough and the map was not great, but it was not too bad for North America.

A trip well worth making, although did it screw up my fall?
