Football (Match) 1:30:00  10.05 km (8:57 / km)
First match of a triple-header week. This week at least it seems I am primarily a footballer rather than an orienteer. In fact, my biggest contribution to the orienteering club this week may well be eating cake at høiås on Thursday ;)
Beat Ekholt 7-2. We came into the match expecting a tough match after they thoroughly beat us last time (we played shite then, but still). The first 20mins was even enough, but once we got on the board things were only really going one way. We let a couple of goals in as we tired in the second half, but the game was done by then.
I really don't understand the dynamics of this league. Next up is Drøbak on Tuesday night. they're 2nd in the league, compared to our 6th, but recent results have shown that means little. We'll see.
Football warm up/down 20:00 
Orienteering 2:00:30  16.0 km (7:32 / km) +250m 6:59 / km
Over to the national park in Sweden to get out of the sights of moose hunters. A nice long orienteering course on a laser map. No major navigation, just a nice terrain run.
Didn't seem to have the ability to pick my own pace today, was behind the boys for the first few controls, then when we caught up Jo I tucked in at her pace. Took slightly different routes but always coming together at the controls until #12 when I cut to #17 while she continued and took a short-cut later on.
Legs satisfyingly tired after running through heather and marshes for 2hrs.
Ellipse 45:00  9.0 km (5:00 / km)
Strength and Conditioning 20:00 
Two girls were taking up all of the usual mat space, just sitting, talking and throwing in a half-hearted stretch every now and then. Grrr. #gymrage
Biking 35:00  9.0 km (3:53 / km) +150m 3:35 / km
Running 45:00  6.4 km (7:02 / km)
Leading the UFO 13-16yo group around Stangås. I've always thought UFO is an unfortunate abbreviation for the youth orienteering group, but I can just about cope with it when pronounced the Norwegian way (ooo-eff-oh)
Anyway, a good paced run leading the fastest group. Unfortunately when Thomas took over the pacing we lost a kid or (more?) off the back of the pack, who I had to go back and find when one of the other kids made me aware of it. But it begs the question, what the hell were the two older helpers at the back of the group doing? They're main purpose was to stick with the last in the group and to let us know if we were going too fast?! Not very impressed.
Last Thursday was one year since my heart-op (one year heartversary, in heart lingo ;)
That went fast eh?! There's been some nostalgic and reflective moments throughout this week for sure, including in quarantine before the KO sprint. Hard to imagine the difference between that day a year ago compared to last week in Czech. Crazy to be running World Cups sprints again just one year on, let alone 3 in 4 days! It's something I couldn't have even conceived doing the last 3 years.
It puts things in perspective though. Now when I make a mistake (even the epic one in the middle, but not so much the ones in relays) I can't help but smile thinking how little the mistakes matter when put in context. And quite often when I'm struggling up a hill or pushing hard, i have a mad little laugh or grimace about how (technically) it's much less pain than what i've been through (hills still hurt though).
Running 49:00  7.8 km (6:17 / km) +150m 5:44 / km
Plod around the tracks. Legs felt decent but energy stores were running pretty low. Seems to have rained a bit in Høiåsmarka since last week?
