training & running as much as we did for the last several weeks to nothing at all/very little feels very weird on the noggin (i can attest) but how are u supposed to crush me at cal o fest if ur not well rested?

but also more seriously, you will not lose fitness in a week.
idk exactly what ur noggin is telling u but mine is in this annoying cycle of oh i definitely want to get better at orienteering and running now (esp after the excitement of bulg/romania) and i wanna get fitter and faster and better at nav and to do that i have to train so so hard and keep training and train some more

but i also have to remember that this week. is not the week for it.

i have so many more weeks to get fast and sexy. this is rest week asf.

Wait, are you back east? Running in heat and humidity? We need to have a chat with your noggin. :-)

About to confine Anna to the car for the long drive down. See you all in SF!

I’m thinking the east coast heat & humidity is way better than days on end of 100°+ days (“dry heat” or not … the inside of your car still gets scorching) …

Never. Give me the dry 100s. It was like that where I was in Iraq, and the one time I went down to Basra (which is humid like the east coast) was pure misery by comparison. Then again, much of my young life was in dry heat, so that just may be what my body is used to.

To each their own! Glad not everyone likes the same things. (To be clear, I’m not a fan of the humidity. And when we were in Paris during a heat wave—temps well over 100°—it was pretty dry and it wasn’t too bad.)
