Running 41:35 [3] 4.55 mi (9:08 / mi) +25m 8:59 / mi

I don't know if I'll get around to explaining this weekend's courses, but basically my knee/hip started to flare again and got sort of bad when I tried to sidehill.

This run was a bit of a test of how they're doing and I guess I passed. My hips and the inside of my ankle felt like I was doing a long PT session for most of the run and it was only in the last mile-ish when they gave up and I felt knee pain.

I've been slacking too much on my stretching and PT exercises, so as long as I pick them up again, I should be good.

Orienteering 46:11 [3] 3.4 km (13:35 / km)

4.9 km (9:27 / km) +83m 8:42 / km
^Look how far I ran that I didn't need to :/

This race is honestly so embarrassing, but here you go
#2- My hands were really cold, so I jammed them under my armpits while I ran down the trail (aka there was no possible way I was reading the map). Eventually, I realized what I was doing and completed my nice little U off the line.

#3- Drifted off the line and didn't think to catch myself because I had forgotten that the map was 1:7500 and ran what felt like the right distance for 1:10000 while getting increasing confused. When I saw the trail, I realized what I'd done and ran back.

#5- Knew what I was doing, but I was not confident at all with the scale and stopped short because I couldn't see the giant boulder that was supposed to be in front of me. Turns out it was hidden behind a tree.

#7- Was a little high and then for SOME REASON decided to orient my map west (the longest side of the map the way I folded it). So then I ran to where I thought the control was supposed to be in relation to the big hill in the valley. At some point, I realized what I did and reoriented.

#8- So bad. I literally spent the whole leg fighting my random urge to orient my map west. I don't know what my problem is. All I know is that I kept looking down and realizing I was going the wrong way.

#10- Pissed and not trusting myself, I used someone else I knew was on Green to exit (great choice, I know) and ended up on a hillside a little too east. I took too long to correct this because there was a trail running along the base, which the correct hillside was also supposed to have.

Attackpoint says I had around 9 minutes worth of mistakes and that sounds right unfortunately

PT/Strength 5:00 [1]
