Running 14:57 [2] 1.76 mi (8:30 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

Running to/from start of backbana from Polacksbacken, with Kat biking along.

Running 29:15 [4] 5.0 km (5:51 / km) +300m 4:30 / km
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

One lap of the backbana in the morning on another lovely day. Felt relatively strong this time - the hills were still really tough, but it felt better than the last couple of times I've run it. This was my best time for the loop - I've never raced it, as I don't really want to break my head open on the downhills, but it's nice to be going at the same intensity as before, but with a faster time.

Orienteering 15:27 [2] *** 1.5 km (10:18 / km)
shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

DX Deluxe training! Running the 2004 version, on a 1:1500 map around Blodstensvagen with Kat and Suzanne. Lots of fun, getting excited about this year's edition of the race!

Running 13:15 [2] 1.56 mi (8:30 / mi)
shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

Running from Blodstensvagen to Kung Bjorns Hill and back. Didn't actually do the course at KBH, since i've done it so many times now. Just walked around instead and sat on the hill, admiring the view and the sheep below.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.11 mi (9:01 / mi)
shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

Warm-up for the club night champs.

Orienteering race 1:10:00 [4] *** 8.92 km (7:51 / km)
spiked:12/15c shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

OK Linne night champs at Lunsen! I think this was the longest night-O i have completed in Sweden, and also my best race. Even though it was Lunsen, it wasn't the most technical course, with many options for trail route choices. I did go straight on the longest leg and was pretty terrified of just running for what seemed like ages through identical looking little swamps, rocky knolls, and the like, until finally finding myself at a trail intersection a couple of hundred meters from the control, almost right on the line. My result wasn't spectacular - 12th place, but the winner ran 60:43, and i was quite happy being 9 minutes back at night over 9km in Lunsen.

Running 1:11:11 [3] 9.82 mi (7:15 / mi)
shoes: Saucony 2006

Went out for a run on Stadsskogen to see how the foot would hold up on trails and more even surfaces than just the forest. It went better than i expected and didn't hurt too much. Maybe i'll try to stick to running on evenish surfaces this week. Actually timed one of the loops today - 29:56 for the second one. Another beautiful day!

Running 16:44 [2] 2.16 mi (7:45 / mi)
shoes: Saucony 2006

Warming up with Kat (11:53) and then running to the gym after intervals. I went to see my naprapath in the afternoon, to get one more hamstring treatment and ask him about the foot again. He decided that his earlier diagnosis of the foot problem was wrong, and it wasn't a moved ligament: that was a separate problem. Great...

Running intervals 15:00 [5] 2.61 mi (5:45 / mi)
shoes: Saucony 2006

Was going to run with Kat as she did her tempo run, but her foot pod didn't work, so that fell through. Instead, i decided to try a short interval session (first one in a while) to see how the hamstring and foot would hold up, just running on gravel. I ended up doing 5x3 minutes with 1 min rest in between. Felt good and probably should have done at least one more, but the hamstring felt tight on the last one, so i decided this was enough for now.

T.rex training 1:00:00 [3]

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 2.22 mi (9:01 / mi)
shoes: 2006-2 VJ Falcons

Warm-up, jogging to the start.

Orienteering race 54:20 [4] *** 7.1 km (7:39 / km)
spiked:14/18c shoes: 2006-2 VJ Falcons

My foot was really hurting in the morning, so i was thinking of not going to the race at all, but decided that some orienteering is better than no orienteering, and went and signed up for an open course - 7km instead of the 12 that H21 Long had. The race itself went ok - one sizeable mistake (about 2:30 lost), but not much besides that. I wasn't running extremely fast, but kept a nice, solid pace. I definitely think of this as good training. The foot was so-so, varying between hurting a lot and being a nuisance. I really need it to heal by next week...
On the bright side, Kat once again showed fantastic form, winning D20 with a solid run and pocketing another gift certificate for 200 SEK from NC Sport, the local orienteering supply store. At this rate, she should just turn professional, and i can quit the sport and become her manager.

Running 30:00 [2] 3.33 mi (9:01 / mi)
shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

Long jog to the start + cool-down.

Orienteering race 43:18 [5] *** 5.28 km (8:12 / km)
spiked:14/17c shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

Langhundra Dubbeln - middle distance.
This was a tougher area than normal Uppland forests - more stuff on the ground and lower visibility, especially near the start, where a lot of people made mistakes. I started well and felt fast despite the constant pain in the foot. Was running very well through the first 7 (2 min back of the lead, 9th place!), but made a big mistake on 8 - didn't see a hill printed under the circle, thought i was in a different place, lost 4+ minutes. Grrrr. Ran pretty well the rest of the way and ended up 25th of 47th. Disappointing, as I felt strong and thought I could do better, but still encouraging to feel confident orienteering in some of this stuff. Splits at
On the bright side, Kat won D20E by seven minutes with a great race!!!!!

Running warm up/down 25:00 [2] 2.78 mi (9:00 / mi)
shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

Warm-up/cool-down with Kat and Suzanne.

Orienteering race 43:58 [5] *** 6.18 km (7:07 / km)
spiked:13/16c shoes: 2006-3 VJ Falcons

OK Linne 25-manna test on Nasten/Norby. Foot hurt during the warm-up, but was ok once the adrenaline kicked in. Felt fast and ran hard the whole way, made a few errors, but nothing too big (30sec, 45sec, 45sec, 45sec) and even caught Bjorn somewhere in the middle - he got away towards the end, but i still got him by 3 seconds. He is the guy in the club ranked directly above me, so it's always good to compare with him...

There were two versions of the men's course - 1a and 1b, but they were basically the same.
