Sunday Mar 3 #

10 AM

running warm up/down 25:00 [1] 4.42 km (5:39 / km)

orienteering 37:38 [4] 6.89 km (5:28 / km) +170m 4:52 / km

Just gave myself the climb on map. Better today, focused on walking out controls and making sure I actually had a plan, still a few minute mistakes but stuff to improve on tomorrow.
I’m happy I knew where I was in a bubble the whole time, but a few mistakes or hooks in the circle or attacking controls. Largest mistake is when I went to cross a river, but thought a small clearing was the trail and got stuck in thorns trying to cross. Also bearings were a bit off at times.

running warm up/down 5:00 [1] 0.89 km (5:37 / km)

Saturday Mar 2 #

12 PM

running warm up/down 25:00 [1] 4.2 km (5:57 / km)

orienteering 43:20 [4] 7.32 km (5:55 / km)

Day 1, mispunched. Alright race other then that. Made one big mistake on a short leg in green, and well small ones on pretty much every leg that wasn’t short. I just didn’t have a good enough plan and was being pushed around by the green.
That being said, I did enjoy the terrain, it was a lot trickier then expected with the limited visibility and subtle contour features, and I can be happy when I made mistakes I stayed calm.
1 PM

running warm up/down 5:30 [1] 1.0 km (5:30 / km)

8 PM

running warm up/down 20:00 [1] 3.56 km (5:37 / km)

orienteering 13:08 [4] 3.3 km (3:59 / km)

Pretty frustrated with the race. A few agonizing moments waiting for an old man to punch a control, a few legs with hesitations where I lost time, losing 15-20s on the go control, and really mainly being 1 minute behind the leader. I should probably also invest in SI air.
The big mistake, I took the slower alley and stopped at the bottom, I thought maybe I hadn’t actually punched 19 so ran back to it, realized I was being an idiot part way back and just went to the go control.

running tempo 30:00 [3] 7.78 km (3:51 / km) +44m 3:45 / km

Decided to keep it easier and did a 30 minute tempo on some paths along the river in Salamanca. Felt alright running, but cold still here. If I’m still feeling it tomorrow, I’ll likely skip intervals and just do some 200m accelerations after an easy run to get my legs moving fast

running 14:30 [2] 2.91 km (4:59 / km) +45m 4:38 / km

Short jog over to a park. Did 2 sets of the runner 360 and then 2x15 pistol squats on each leg with 15 push-ups in the middle because, yeah, I’m huge.
