Orienteering race 4:51:57 [3] 26.2 km (11:09 / km)

Tired! Haven't done something that tough in awhile... the race was longer than most of my total training time since maybe May?

Ran the first map (inc. most of the trail run with Hilly and Sam), but when we came out from the wrong trail onto the road, I decided I should go back and actually follow the yellow line despite the fact that we'd already taken a long-cut. So lost them then.

Second map was the most technical, and I did pretty well with it, although had to keep talking myself into running and not just walking. Blueberries are tough stuff! Was around a number of guys.

Third map was tough just to keep with it. Went to far on the first control- mistook one set of rocks for another. Next few went fine, but was just hard to keep going- was slow enough I didn't really make any more mistakes though, although I nearly went passed 25, just saved myself.

Good stuff: stayed with it enough to navigate, didn't twist or crunch ankles or pull anything
Stuff to work on: reading a map while trail running, physical fitness (esp. strength to run through terrain/blueberries!), figure out pacing again

Running warm up/down 15:00 [2]

Over to near the start, then the drills, then two short intervals on the way to the start.

Drills warm up/down 5:00 [1]

Drills led by one of the French.
Kick bum- High knees - Bound - Grapevine - Arms - Run backwards
Twice a week they apparently do these exercises 3-4 times each.

Orienteering 58:53 [3]

Tero-planned training relay, paired with Ross = team Rally! =)

Leg 1 was out with Kat on the same one, I was further and further behind as it went on- could not map read + run at her speed!
Leg 2 had a bad mistake running to far in boulder land.
Leg 3, also a bit confused in boulder land.
Final leg- pretty good! Chasing down Cristina and passed by Eddie.

Orienteering 47:26 [3]

Fairly smooth, but not too aggressive- my left achilles was bugging me a bit, and with the highlander on the very near horizon, didn't want to push it over the edge.

Felt more and more comfortable with the map and rocks and such.

Running 26:00 [2]

Run back to Daniela's from work. Took a wrong turn, which made it a bit longer, not a terrible thing!

Running 40:00 [1]

A loop Mauro recommended from work. Not bad, although toughest hill is right at the beginning- maybe backwards would be better?

Running intervals 6:00 [4]

Some not-awesome intervals. Hard to plan where to do them (ie. to avoid downhills, traffic lights) on my first time around the loop.

Running 21:00 [2]

Forgot to bring my shoes into work, so didn't get to run mid-day, but squeezed one in to the last minutes of daylight after getting back! Felt slightly asthmatic at the end of it actually. Weird.
