Orienteering (Troll Cup Blue 2) 1:55:00 [5] 8.48 km (13:34 / km) +480m 10:34 / km

Better day today, not cramping at the end, better route choices, but still blew a couple of controls including a big time bomb on #9. Slow, but a good day out in the woods. Glad I opted for Blue

Orienteering (Troll Cup Blue 1) 2:01:04 [5] 8.62 mi (14:03 / mi) +470m 12:01 / mi

See race description - a long, hard day on my own map - which didn't really mean much except I know my mapping style. But I still managed to run into the green knowing full well I shouldn't.

Visibility really sucked so the going was slow and a lot of people had trouble with that. If the leaves were down, I think people's times would have been much faster and there would not have been as many errors if you could have seen further in the terrain. But I warned people of that in the meet notes but did not realize how bad it would be until I too was out there. I haven't been in the woods since June and most of the Day 1 terrain was back before the leaves were out.

Run - Treadmill (5k) 22:14 [4] 5.0 km (4:27 / km)
ahr:154 max:179 (sick)

New treadmills at the gym, have a 5k option with continuous HR readout, also have sub-max fitness test built in.

Ran the 5k adjusting speed to keep HR just under 160, ran the last 500m full out.


Cold is slowly going away, but still have crap in my chest and a bit of sinus congestion.

Run - Treadmill (sub-max fitness test) 14:29 [2] 1.3 km (11:08 / km)
ahr:107 max:124 (sick)

Tried out the sub max fitness test - 3.4mph, incrementing 1% slope per minute to 12%. Not sure how it claims to derive a VO2 value from heart rate, but I suppose I could use it as a relative measure. Today's VO2 = 59.3

Run - Treadmill (warmup) 4:23 [3] 0.8 km (5:29 / km)

two laps warmup on treadmill

Looking over the maps and routes of Peter & Boris and realizing I am wasting far too much time navigating the straighter route. Need to focus on finding the cleaner, faster paths. Even legs where I navigated cleanly and felt I was reasonably fast, those that went wide via trails beat me handily..

Also was good to follow Peter a bit in the Relay - not so much blind following as keeping him in sight and noting his route choices - only on one leg did my slightly straighter route yield a faster time - but I also dropped in and out of a reentrant that Peter went high on so it was likely not better route, but just at that point I may have been running harder than Peter.
