Orienteering 55:00 [2] 6.0 km (9:10 / km)
19c shoes: VJ Supra 2014-1

Prince William Forest junior camp session 1: multi-technique exercise.

After explaining the exercise and sending off the juniors for training, I went and ran Thierry's exercise myself. It was really fun. It was a multi-part exercise. Corridor, then control pick, then compass, then contours-only. A really good exercise! I struggled in the corridor and had to move a couple of streamers in the control pick (the map is a little sketchy), but otherwise it was an excellent exercise. Really grateful to Thierry for designing it!

Orienteering 54:28 [2] 6.87 km (7:56 / km) +232m 6:47 / km
9c shoes: VJ Supra 2014-1

Prince William Forest junior camp. Exercise 2: Route Choice.

This exercise was designed by Johan H. Thank you Johan!!

I paired up with Kenny, who pre-planned both sets of routes, as I was busy explaining the exercise to all the juniors and getting people paired up. Kenny and I were pretty well-matched for speed, so it was really fun to compare routes. Most of the times they were pretty even, but on #4 Kenny kicked my butt by crossing the stream and the green and doing most of the leg on the trail instead of taking tons of climb on the direct route that I took.

6 PM

Orienteering 1:37:06 [2] 9.82 km (9:53 / km) +367m 8:20 / km

Prince William Forest Camp session 3: night-O

This was a brutal night-O course set by Jon T, made even more brutal by the weather. It was snowing, and got to blizzardy conditions pretty early on, with visibility down to a couple of feet and driving snow in your face. I struggled at that point, and screwed up #1, hitting #2 first. Managed to get a grip on things after that, and orienteered steadily, if slowly. Very tired by the end ad very happy to have some leftovers from the potluck for dinner when I got back to camp.

What a great, tough day of training! It would not have been possible without Jon T's initiative, Florence Tan's masterful cooking, and Valerie's map printing, along with the many others who helped out during the weekend.

Kenny made an awesome side-by-side of the videos from his and my headcams. Very cool, especially with all the head-to-head racing and a sprint finish. Video

Cross-Training 55:00 [1]

Tuesday Feb 10, 2015 #

Running 30:02 [2] 3.8 mi (7:54 / mi)
shoes: Yellow Mizunos 2014

Taking it easy for a couple of days, as I strained a muscle in my back/hip during stair jumping yesterday. Had an easy jog home from work.

9 AM

Running 1:53:14 [2] 21.24 km (5:20 / km) +283m 5:00 / km
shoes: Yellow Mizunos 2014

An experiment at running with a beast. I took Poppy for a long run around Rock Creek Park. It worked well for the most part, except when she was terrified of horses or harassed by off-leash dogs.
