Running 16:00 [2] 2.0 mi (8:00 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

Running over to the start of backbana from school, and back.

Running 28:41 [4] 5.0 km (5:44 / km) +300m 4:25 / km
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

Lunchtime backbana. Ran 1 lap, trying to take relatively "easy", which is hard to do on backbana. Legs felt tired from the intervals yesterday, which didn't help things, but my time ended up pretty decent - the fastest i've run so far, I think. I've never actually raced backbana for fear of breaking some body parts on the really steep downhills, but maybe i'll try it one of these days just to see.

Running 25:08 [2] 3.28 mi (7:40 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

My first morning jog around the block in what seems like ages. Sunny and cool, nice morning for running.

Running 48:00 [2] 5.65 mi (8:30 / mi)
shoes: Saucony 2006

Running over to Blodan with Kat, warm-up, jogging/walking between intervals, cool-down.

Running 32:00 [4] 5.47 mi (5:51 / mi)
shoes: Saucony 2006

Threshold intervals in Stadsskogen with Andrew. I did 8x4 minutes with 1 min rest. As usual struggled a bit in the beginning, but then felt better and better as we went on. Nice, tough work-out.

Running 30:00 [2] 3.53 mi (8:30 / mi)
shoes: Saucony 2006

Warm-up with Kat, running to the start, cool-down with TYRTOM.

Orienteering race 17:39 [5] *** 2.7 km (6:32 / km)
spiked:15/17c shoes: Saucony 2006

OK Linné's Sprint Club Champs.
A really fun, tricky course set by Jan and Björn on the Castle map. Lots of route choice, as well as dead-ends and uncrossable walls to worry about. I almost ran into one dead-end and got trapped by one wall, but had a good race otherwise. Finished 7th overall, and 2nd best Linné runner out of those who didn't draw the map (the piece I field-checked hasn't been added yet.) TYRTOM was in town, and we jogged around afterwards and cheered Kat on her way to the last few controls. She was flying!
Here is a short article I wrote about the race for the club website (in English):

Running 38:16 [2] 4.78 mi (8:00 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

Recovery jog around Nåsten and Norby before the training group meeting. Stiff in the beginning, but felt better towards the end. The continuing stomach problems are worrying me, though.
Kat is here tomorrow!!!

Running 15:00 [2] 1.76 mi (8:30 / mi)
shoes: 2007 model Falcons

Warming up and getting my body to wake up. Felt quite stiff and not in race mode during the warm-up.

Orienteering race 1:45:47 [4] **** 13.1 km (8:05 / km)
spiked:19/23c shoes: 2007 model Falcons

Upplands Lång-DM, organized by Vallentuna-Össeby near Åkersberga.
It's been a long time since I'd run an actual long race, so I felt uneasy on the warm-up, as my body refused to wake up. However, the straight uphill start woke me up pretty quickly, and I felt fine the rest of the way physically. Navigation was another story, as I missed time on #2 (1:00), #3 (2:00), and #5 (3:00). It was really detailed stuff, and I didn't approach it cautiously enough. Plus, it's been a while since I'd raced in really detailed Uppland terrain. That was disappointing, but things went better after that. I was caught by Ola Hultin from 6 minutes back, and ran with him for a while, sometimes taking the lead, sometimes behind. Then we split up on the long leg to 15, and it looks like I got ahead again. Unfortunately, I got stuck in some nasty green on the next long leg, to 18, and lost two minutes. I saw Ola again leaving 18 and ran hard to catch and pass him. Felt good all the way to the finish and navigated quite cleanly in the end. Finished 12th, with Johan Höij winning in 83 minutes - an impressive time!
Also, I think one reason I didn't hit the wall today was because I took a gel that you could open and close again, and so instead of taking it all at once, I took a couple of sips at a time a few times during the course. That seemed to work well, and I'll be trying it again.

Running 1:34:37 [2] 11.47 mi (8:15 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Trail Shoes

Just the perfect day to start the fall with! Sunny, a bit breezy, and just warm enough that it actually feels warm, and not hot. The perfect day for a nice run on the trails in Nåsten, in other words. Took a swing past Flogsta to drop off Patrick's keys, and then off to the forest. A mix of small and big trails, as well as a couple of stretches I've never been to before. Very enjoyable run. How can I even think of leaving this place, with all of these great places right outside my door??
