Orienteering warm up/down 6:00 [2] 0.9 km (6:40 / km) +30m 5:43 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

Around the parking lot & up & down the hill to start. Chilly day, but at least not raining.

Orienteering race 1:30:28 intensity: (2:04 @2) + (9:46 @3) + (1:15:37 @4) + (3:01 @5) 12.89 km (7:01 / km) +430m 6:01 / km

7th in US Champs 2009. A little wobblier than I'd have liked to have been. And a little disappointing that I wasn't mentally focussed on pushing effectively. At 11, I thought I'd seen Will just go by (he'd actually passed me earlier), so I did focus on solid legs to 12, 13 and 14 in hopes of catching him, and was basically running Will's speed for those legs. HR wasn't even much higher than normal during that section, just more consistent.

A number of 30 second wobbles, and a 2 minute 'where am I' confusion event leaving 15 hurt the time. 4 minutes faster would've been nice, in 4th. I've got a lot more work to do - and a surprisingly large amount of it is mental - to get back on a US Champs podium.

Tom did a great job leading a team meeting today. The first that he 'chaired' while I've been around. Well organized and kept things moving.

On coaching, now that we've lost coach Waddington, there's a revived emphasis on inter-team-member 'coaching', where coaching may be less technical/physical directive, and more toward the cross-checking that we're meeting our individual training goals. I need to repost my training plan, and get someone (Clem or ?) to bug me about it... Maybe even a non-Team member could take on that role?

There was also talk about fundraising and other 'contributions' to the Team, and the topic of 'requirement' vs 'encouragment' was raised. If requirement means if you don't do it, you're off the team, there were a few people with strong resistance (e.g. myself), but a novel middle idea was proposed that if you don't meet some standard of 'contribution' to the team, and/or some standard of coaching/training/logging or whatever the 'requirements' are, that you'd be an 'unfunded' member of the Team, meaning e.g. you couldn't ask for funding for WREs, WCup's, Training Camps or even WOC. WOC teams and even overall team membership would still be selected based upon current measures of O' performance only (with little regard to volunteering/contribution/training effort), but even if you won the Trials, if you were an un-funded Team member, you'd have to pay your own expenses. Or something like that. Nothing was firmly concluded, but it was discussed. If implemented, this might also help with the coming crisis of running out of money for traditional levels of WOC funding (all but airfare...)

Orienteering 42:01 [3] 5.69 km (7:23 / km) +137m 6:35 / km
ahr:152 shoes: O-VJ-Grey-Spikes

'Easy' pace training loop of the 5k pre-US-Champs course. Did okay, felt I had a feel for the map, figured out hill tops were good, but didn't use the map to practice efficient route planning, which would've been helpful.

Running 26:34 intensity: (13:00 @1) + (13:34 @2) 4.1 km (6:29 / km) +51m 6:06 / km
shoes: R-NB-Gray-460's 2nd pair

With Angelica, short loop to & around Wilson Park. Angelica was very slow for first 2 k, and I'm just resting my hamstring...

Running 42:48 [2] 7.38 km (5:48 / km) +150m 5:16 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

Running with Angelica & Tom. Angelica used the HR monitor for the 1st time, and her HR oscillated between 130 and 150 as she'd push up hill, then relax, then push, etc... Not so much on purpose as on habit from running with two friends (Tom & Jackie) that do the same.

Tuesday Oct 20, 2009 #

Running 1:43:46 [2] 18.47 km (5:37 / km) +200m 5:20 / km
ahr:132 shoes: R-NB-Gray-460's 2nd pair

With Angelica, who was quite surprised to run 11 miles in 99:30.

Hamstring definitely less sore than yesterday. Yesterday being worse than Sunday, presumably as I was sitting at work more?

Running 22:43 [1] 3.57 km (6:22 / km) +40m 6:02 / km
shoes: R-NB-Gray-460's 2nd pair

AM run, resting R-ham taking it pretty easy
