Orienteering race 14:55 [4] 2.4 km (6:13 / km)

TT - Sprint. Started near the end of the starting block with Vadim 1min ahead of me and on the same minute as Ali. Did not really warm up properly and it was hot so I didn't want to overheat before the actual race. Made a small mistake on #2 as I thought that I could run around the stairs through the gray. No go, so turned around. Then a little one on #5 as I missed the gap in the fence and ran around the building instead. Then on the way to #7, I wasn't sure what was the gray area was. Was it passable or not, so followed Ali into the tunnel. Not a very good route but not a disaster. Caught up to Vadim on the way to #10 but then almost skipped #12 as I turned myself into the tunnel towards #13. Caught myself just in time. Started to feel pretty good here as if I finally warmed up but at #13 didn't see the little opening in the structure and spent 10 seconds kissing the door. Finally figured it out. Almost overran #14, but saw it just in time. Finished feeling good, as if the race has just began.
A weird race. Never felt like I was really racing it. Had a lot of energy afterwards.

Spoke to my boss about the possibility of me making the team and going to WOC. The earliest he could let me go is Friday, August 12, or the day we file with the SEC. Not what I was hoping for. Such is the life of a public accountant... sigh...

Running 1:03:44 [3] 13.5 km (4:43 / km)
ahr:167 max:190

A decent effort on trails at Lewis Morris before the sunset. Spider babes errr... webs were in my face all the time. Had to get one hard training out of my system this week so this was it. Hit 190 on the last uphill. Perhaps could eek out a few more beats but decided to not push it all the way and keep it reasonable. Tapering for the weekend has began.

ahr:137 max:152

Easy run at Eagle Rock. Legs felt pretty heavy, though the objective was to take it really easy today.

Orienteering 52:11 [4] 8.0 km (6:31 / km)
ahr:174 max:184

Saxon Woods - HVO Local Meet. The course had a lot of trail runs and I was running way faster than I was reading the map, as a result, made errors on 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, and never went to 15. On the bright side, I felt like my speed was good, so it turned out to be a good training after all.
4 PM

Running 38:00 [3] 8.0 km (4:45 / km)

The control pick did not materialize but I felt like I still had some gun powder left. So after arriving home, I immediately headed to Eagle Rock for another mud run on soggy trails. Felt pretty good even on the few uphills that the park has to offer.
