Orienteering 6:05 [3] 0.31 mi (19:37 / mi)

Racing ended pretty quickly. I was thinking more about my ankle than I was the navigation, and it wasn't feeling good. I decided to turn back just after the first control. Walking back to the finish hurt, while walking around this morning felt okay. So stopping was the right call, but a disappointing one to have to make. It's been a while since I've had real ankle issues, and I know that I'll really have to focus on ankle strengthening over the next month. I'll be taking 2+ days off of running now.
What a bummer of a weekend. I had fun spectating and spending time with teammates and orienteers I don't get to see enough, but racing is what I'm there for :(

Orienteering race 46:45 [4] 3.16 mi (14:48 / mi) +220m 12:10 / mi
15c (injured) shoes: Innov-8 X-talon 212

This race went very quickly from one of the best forest races I have ever had to not. Controls 1-11 went amazingly well. I had very small bobbles on 1, 6, 9, and 10, but they only took minor corrections, and overall my orienteering was just really on for this first 2/3 of the course. Then, two steps before control 11, I stepped in a hole, my L foot plantar flexed much more than it should have, and I heard a loud pop from the front outside part. I do slight rolls my ankles relatively frequently in orienteering races when its in rocky terrain, but it never hurts for more than a couple steps, and there's never a loud pop. I walked for a few steps out of 11, but then started running again since it didn't hurt. However, mentally the ankle put me off my game. I was worried about it, and then thinking about that more than my orienteering, and I started thinking about how tired I was, and using my ankle as an excuse not to continue to push physically. I read the control description for 12 (shallow reentrant) instead of 13, so did some wandering around the reentrants near 13 trying to figure out what was going on. Plan on 14 was poorly executed, and then I didn't go to 15. Just didn't go to it. I think I looked at 15 on my map, and navigated from there to 16, which was not all that different than 14-16. It was still just down the hill, to the trail, take the trail. I didn't need to be really paying attention while on the slope or on the trail, so I wasn't. I didn't even realize I had missed 15 completely. This is my first mispunch maybe ever, but definitely in a big race. In my first national meet (interscholastics 2015) my epunch missed a control, but the control box had correctly recorded my punch, so that was a narrow miss of a mispunch, but the closest I can remember to one. It was an extremely disappointing end to the race, especially with how great the majority of it was.

Ankle is not too too swollen, but it definitely is swollen. I'll be out of the relay :( and then hopefully running again Monday.

I had the most trouble on the finish -- I was the first finisher and the control wasn't quite in the right spot. Fun course though. Again, I should have brought my o shoes, but oh well.

To Madison Park High... where there was yet another track meet. Plan had been to run 2x (800m, 600m, 400m) but I didn't have the time today to wait. Hung around for a little bit and did some stretching and core, but I couldn't stay for much longer. I wanted to get in another interval workout this week, so if the lights are on later tonight, I'll do the intervals then, but if not, I'll take today as an easy day and really push at the park-o tomorrow. We'll see.

Stretching 10:00 [1]

Running intervals 44:06 [5] 5.06 mi (8:43 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Guide 10 (Blue)

Well I was running on a full stomach, the meeting I had to go to was pointless, and it started storming halfway through my intervals, so this was a little frustrating. At least with the rain it wasn't too hot. 2x(800m, 600m, 400m) at target paces of 95 (3:10), 92 (2:18), 88. I really messed up the pacing on the first 800, but did a little better after that, except for the second 600. That one sucked.
Knees felt okay, but I only did 1 mile of cool down and then walked the rest of the way home because I don't want to get hurt. R knee started hurting while walking, but on the backside which is good (?) because that's not where it normally hurts. Icing knee right now as I roll out my L plantar fascia under the ball of my foot.
