Trail run 7:25 [2] 0.33 km (22:37 / km) +62m 11:37 / km

Warming up, a jog up to the start. Starting in the last start block with what seemed to be a teeming horde of ANCO runners :) Marc looked pretty fast jogging around as he warmed up.

orienteering 1:11:47 [5] 10.5 km (6:50 / km) +501m 5:31 / km

Better race technically today, but a much easier race too. Felt a bit tougher to run up the hills, but maybe that's just my legs feeling tired from all this Swiss mountain stuff :)

Marc passed me on the way to 3 (from a minute back) and I did my best to keep moving at his speed. Probably not a great idea, as I came off the trail at a bad angle and in my oxygen deprived state I missed the flag by quite a bit.

Middle part of the course went well, but near the end I was getting sloppy and found that I was hording climb, and so not taking the best line just because I didn't want to have to do any climb at all. That was mostly on the last loop.

orienteering 1:17:06 [5] 10.07 km (7:40 / km) +438m 6:17 / km

Second Stage of the Swiss O Week. Parts okay, legs a little bit tired, and that's for sure. One really big mistake and then the end of the course was riddled with small errors.

First part of the course was clean but perhaps a bit too conservative. On the long leg to 9, thought to contour around to the road and then angle down to the flag. That slope was steep! Contouring was hard, and I managed to slip out and slid over a contour down the hill before catching myself again. I lost confidence with my route and bailed out to the road below me, a bit because I didn't understand the vegetation. This meant that the best route was to run the road from below. Lost about 6 minutes on this one.

After the race Marc scolded me for my desire to do a bunch of extra running this week. He suggested that I would have more fun and get better training if I was able to race well each day. Sad to miss out on the extra running, but my result was low enough that I think I will follow his advice :)

Trail run 10:15 [2] 1.07 km (9:35 / km) +125m 6:03 / km

Trail run 2:12:27 [3] 17.4 km (7:37 / km) +935m 6:00 / km

Rest Day! Running up from the apartment through the cold mist up towards Grunsee and then just because I was having fun, a little higher and a little higher, hoping to go touch a glacier. At about 70 minutes, realized the glacier was not a feasible plan, and so turned around and headed back.

Love these mountains!
