Orienteering 1:45:00 [2] 8.75 km (12:00 / km)
(injured) (sick) shoes: 2006 VJ Falcons

Went out to North Lunsen again with Kat and did the control picking exercise from a month ago, in reverse order. Went slowly, but felt pretty good and orienteered reasonably well. Will hopefully start doing speedwork again next week if the hamstring doesn't get worse.

Pool running 1:00:00 [1]

Pool running at Fyrishov with Kat, including a few "sprints".

Orienteering 1:35:23 [2] 11.5 km (8:18 / km)
(injured) (sick) shoes: VJ - Studs

Unretired a pair of old shoes that sort of give me blisters for this nice, easy run on Nasten with Kat. Definitely need new shoes! Very nice run - the woods and meadows are bautiful this time of year, and the cows and horses along the way provided good entertainment.

Running 27:36 [3] 3.94 mi (7:00 / mi)
(injured) (sick) shoes: 2006 VJ Falcons

From Rob and Allison's place to the clubhouse, then to various buses, and then to the start of the training and back. Watching the USA-Ghana World Cup match and holding out hope just until the very end, we ended up having to run hard to the clubhouse and arrived maybe a minute late, with everyone having already gone. So, after some discussion, Rob and I took a couple of buses to the training and got back to his place just in time for the kick-off of the Australia-Croatia game, which turned out not to be shown on Swedish TV!! But Australia went through to the next round anyway, so go Socceroos - doing a whole lot better than team USA!

Orienteering 42:45 [4] ***** 6.0 km (7:08 / km)
spiked:14/16c (injured) (sick) shoes: 2006 VJ Falcons

Middle distance course on the North side of Lunsen - not as intense as the south part, but still really, really fun. Ran reasonably hard, as Rob and i wanted to make sure to get back in time for the Australia-Croatia kick-off. Ran pretty well and had good map contact except for a big mistake at 11 - probably four minutes lost or so... Lots of fun!!!!

Running 41:11 [2] 5.31 mi (7:45 / mi)
(injured) (sick) shoes: Asics 2006

To and from the start of backbana. The way there (22:30) through Stadsskogen and along the golf course and the way back (18:40) through Polacksbacken.

Running 30:12 [4] 5.06 km (5:58 / km) +300m 4:36 / km
shoes: Asics 2006

Plans to run sprint courses in Stadssgkogen with Hammer and rob fell through, so I dragged myself out to run one lap around backbana at easy pace. Of course, "easy pace" for backbana still means you are huffing and puffing on the uphills, no matter how slow you are going. As a result, I ended up pushing pretty hard and felt like i was going to beat my time from the last time i ran here, just before heading to the US for Team Trials, since that time i didn't push very hard. Well, as i made my way up the last hill and got to the finish line, i saw that my time was exactly the same, to the second, as last time. I guess this means i lost some form over the last month, as it was more of an effort to run 30:12 this time than a month ago, but that shouldn't be surprising, looking at my "training" the last month...

T.rex training 20:00 [1]

The flexibility exercises i haven't been doing in a while.

Check out this Venla video, a news story on Finnish TV, which I stole from ALJ's log:

Orienteering 1:08:27 [1] ** 5.7 km (12:01 / km)
(injured) (sick) shoes: 2005 Falcons

Went for a jog on the Stadsskogen map to hang some streamers (toilet paper sheets) for Hammer to run the Temo Cup and maybe Linne's winter race that was here. Felt like an old man going out the door - everything seemed to hurt, and i had no energy at all, but everything got steadily better as the run went on, and i felt pretty good by the end. It started raining about halfway through, so my "controls" are probably already destroyed, but running in the rain felt nice.
My 2005 O-shoes' days are numbered, as their guts are coming out and they are starting to give me blisters... Need new O-shoes.

Running 1:36:19 [2] 15.0 km (6:25 / km)
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

A long, easy run with the Linne crew on Kung Bjorn's trail - basically all over Nasten. This "trail" was almost like running through terrain, including marshes and all that. A fun, relaxed run, followed by a great dinner and World Cup-watching at Allison and Rob's place.
