Running warm up/down 15:00 [1] 1.0 mi (15:00 / mi)
slept:7.0 (injured) shoes: Asics Ahar

Was planning to run with Asics since I had banged up heal but realized it will be very, very slippery with them.

Orienteering race (Sprint Series Finals. Rac) 15:59 [5] *** 2.8 km (5:43 / km) +45m 5:17 / km
17c shoes: Adidas Neptune XC Spikes

Slowest qualifying heat but I managed to come in second. Therefore I guarantied myself spot in top 10.

John F., Vlad and I messed up 3rd flag big time. That was probably main cause why we got caught by second heat.

For a minute I thought there is no way I can qualify by time. But then going from 9 to 10 I noticed that Vlad is just in front of me and running at speed that gave me a "hope". Had to decide where to pass him for 2nd spot in my heat. I passed him going to #14. That stayed till finish

Warmup before Round 2

Orienteering race (Sprint Finals. Round 2) 15:59 [5] *** 2.6 km (6:09 / km) +65m 5:28 / km
16c shoes: Adidas Neptune XC Spikes

By far the most satisfying race in Sprint Series Finals. Unfortunately after punching in #12 I planned and executed route from #12 to #14, skipping #13. My route choice included to run through #13 and I saw #13. But when I saw #13 I thought - that's not my flag and ran by. Eddie was following me at that point and was "impressed" how fast I punched in #13.

If I was in the slowest heat in round one then this was fastest heat for round 2. Could have placed 6,7 but.... DQ is DQ.

By #14 I was starting tun run out of fuel and top 3 guys were ahead of me enough that I could not catch them to contend for 3rd best time. I did not even try to contend with Edie once he punched just in front of me at #15.

It would not matter anyway since I DQd anyway.

Why this was most satisfying race? Because for most part I was able to execute my line, cutting corners from John's and Ross' route choices. I have to say that John was running all over vs. Ross executed his route choices very well.

Warmup before round 3.

Orienteering race (Sprint Finals. Round 3) 19:58 [4] *** 2.86 km (6:59 / km)
17c shoes: Adidas Neptune XC Spikes

Race for 6th to 10th. After punching in #5 I was out of fuel. I did not have straight to follow the group, so, I let them go. Intensity was not there for me anymore and I was just racing to finish, hoping, maybe I can steal place or two if I don't make too many mistakes. But I did. Not big ones but about minute or so in total. Some of the route choices were horrible...

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1] 1.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
slept:6.0 shoes: Asics Ahar

Orienteering race (Farsta) 1:30:00 [4] 8.4 km (10:43 / km)
(injured) shoes: Adidas Neptune XC Spikes

I messed up 2nd and 3rd flag. First loop was 55 minutes. Second loop was about 35 minutes. I did not even try to run hard on second loop. Execution on second loop was lot cleaner however there were few mistakes. Biggest problem I have now is I banged up my right heal. More time goes buy mor it hurts. I am icing it at the hotel now

Swimming 10:00 [1]

Easy swim at hotel's pool. Heal feels better after IB and some ice therapy.
