Orienteering 42:03 [4] 4.31 km (9:45 / km) +215m 7:49 / km

Team Trials Short, 6th

Many small mistakes, but none worse than :45 sec. Many people made at least one 2+ minute mistake, so I ended up okay. R-foot very lightly sore near end of race, and on/off in early evening, and in middle of night (while awake and walking - it didn't wake me up...)

Running (Warmup) 12:00 [3] 1.2 mi (10:00 / mi)

Thursday May 22, 2003 #

Running (Warmup & Cooldown) 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Strength (Gym Weights) 15:00 [1]

Fairly light session, including a foot/ankle session. R-foot very lightly sore while running to/from gym.

Tomorrow's rest, then trials... where I hope to finish 9th out of 12th (despite my rankings seeding of 6th...) Considering 10th, 11th and 12th all beat me by a substantial margin at the Billygoat last week though, holding onto 9th would be good.

Orienteering 55:12 [2] 5.4 km (10:13 / km)

VF Mt. Joy, US Relay Champs Green, backwards, fairly easy, in light rain. Shoes totally filled with water on every traverse through grass. Took it easy on footing, to ensure no new blisters.

R-Quad is still sore from the goat this evening. Hopefully I won't still be feeling it this weekend!

R-foot was near 100% during the whole run. Yay! I wonder what was up with it yesterday. Perhaps the approach of the rain is worse than the rain itself? Odd.

Running (Warmup & Cooldown) 13:00 [2] 1.3 mi (10:00 / mi)

Strength 15:00 [1]

ONA legs only, plus ankles in the air... Foot lightly sore today on and off, but better after workout.

Other Aerobic (Water Aerobics) 30:00 [2]

Lots of arms and mid-body, plus lots of bouncing on toes off bottom and some water running/cycling.

My quads are sore from yesterday's run, but amazingly my foot has felt totally normal all morning and even during all the off-the-toe bounces in water aerobics. I kept expecting it to get a little sore on the bounces but it never did.

Now, it is a nice sunny day, and that may help, but for the day after the BillyGoat, and doing a lot of pool toe bouncing that hurt my foot just two weeks ago, I'm pretty happy my foot is fine!

Running (Grass) 5:00 [2] 0.5 mi (10:00 / mi)

Light warmup jog. Foot was very lightly sore on some bumpy ground and some downhill. In regular (old) running shoes.

Sunday May 18, 2003 #

Orienteering (Race) 2:02:28 [4] 11.8 km (10:23 / km)

& 540m ideal climb (haven't figured actual.)

BillyGoat. 35th. Near/led Erin for much of 1st 1/2. Foot got sore (slowly building up soreness, nothing noticably sharp...) so slowed to ~1/2 walk, 1/2 jog for 3rd quarter of course (intesity 2-3). Foot felt better so picked up pace for last quarter, and foot only got sore again in last 5 minutes and on and off after I finished. Finished ~10 minutes behind Erin (and 7 seconds ahead of Pavlina.) Even if foot was 100%, fitness would probably have limited me to about Erin's time or so.

Lightly sore (dull ache) on and off while waiting around after and on car ride home. Mostly on now that I'm home. Not great, but not bad considering the abuse. I should probably stretch again. And get new running shoes soon. Barefoot is starting to feel better than those ol' shoes.

One more foot-abusive weekend (Team Trials) and then 4(?) mostly-base/easy weeks until PNWOF... Hopefully the foot will be totally recovered both during (and after) races by PNWOF.
