Orienteering race 1:10:54 [4] 6.8 km (10:26 / km) +255m 8:47 / km

Started off the course really good for the first 4 controls. Then I got overconfident, stopped reading the map as much as I should, and totally blew control 5. I really wasn't that far off, but I went the wrong direction once I got to the hillside, ended up on the super steep section, and then kind of thought I was going to fall down the hill and die when I finally realized what I had done and that I had to go back across the super steep hillside. Thankfully I made it without falling down the hill, but I lost a good 6+ minutes here. I made a few other, smaller mistakes up through control 10, but nothing more than a minute or so I'd say. Going to 11, I totally missed the trail I planned on taking and didn't realize it until I saw the building much farther along the trail I was on, but it was a pretty easy correction to go the other way, and I probably didn't lose that much time. After 11 I was pretty clean for the rest of the course, and was really able to push the pace for the last several controls. It didn't make up for my earlier mistakes, but it was good to end strong, and I honestly really enjoyed this course, if only I could have control 5 back. Still, a solid 2-day performance, considering how little orienteering I have been doing lately.

Orienteering race 1:30:09 [4] 8.1 km (11:08 / km) +325m 9:16 / km

Really clean race today, and a fun course. Started getting tired around control 12, and I could tell I was slowing down, but I managed not to make any major mistakes. There was a good amount of off-trail, and I was surprised at how well I was reading the map, especially with trying to push the pace. Very happy with how I did!

Running 42:00 [3] 5.04 mi (8:20 / mi)

Finally got back to my apartment at 9pm, so naturally it seemed like a good time go running. It felt like a productive alternative to doing homework, so I'm just going to pretend that it wasn't a form of procrastination. Didn't feel great after having a chocolate milkshake (happy national chocolate milkshake day) and pizza (it was free) for dinner, but I didn't feel too awful either. And it probably was more productive than me sitting and staring at my homework that I didn't want to do, so I'll call it a win.

Running 45:00 [3] 5.48 mi (8:13 / mi)

This was that one time this semester I was actually motivated enough to get up early and run before class. I'm a little sore from the gym on Saturday, and my legs were tired from orienteering yesterday, but it was still a good run, and the fresh morning air was a good way to wake up I guess.

Yoga 50:00 [2]

We're getting into doing more actual yoga now! We did some full sun salutations and some other good stuff, but of course nothing can beat that last shavasana...
