Mapping 1:00:00 [0] 2.0 km (30:00 / km)

Since there is no snow again, but probably some coming shortly, I figured I'd do some fieldwork mapping today, and my legs are kind of tired from yesterday.

Started doing a chunk of Academy Hill that is all forested, but Bluetooth GPS is having connectivity issues again, so going to have to troubleshoot that now that I'm home and warm again. Very frustrating. Got a bit done, but not very much.

Big new updates posted for the Okanagan Adventure Running Tournament. Interested in coming? Want more details? Then come click a button.

Here is a good old map sample from one of the maps I'm working on for the tourney.

And this isn't even close to the best part, I haven't finished most of the best areas yet. Plenty more samples of completed areas on that link up there.
10 AM

Running 5:24 [1] 0.69 km (7:51 / km) +12m 7:12 / km

Run down to UBCO Transit exchange.

Running 27:50 [1] 2.85 km (9:47 / km) +12m 9:34 / km

Warm Up Run.

Orienteering 1:10:23 intensity: (45:23 @1) + (25:00 @3) 9.15 km (7:42 / km) +95m 7:19 / km

Orienteering course with tons of loops in Mission Creek Park. Rachel would put out controls for one loop, I would put out flags on the other, than switch and race while picking them up. Used control flags since another individual named David came and it was his first time orienteering. A fair bit of waiting for him between loops, but that just meant more recovery time.

I should really just stop trying to start and stop my GPS. I forget, almost invariably. So the time and distances are a bit of a guess....

4 PM

Running 49:47 intensity: (40:47 @1) + (5:00 @2) + (4:00 @4) 6.88 km (7:14 / km) +239m 6:10 / km

Run down to UBCO and around a bit, then did 2 intervals (inspired by Klepperton) up the singletrack mountain bike track to the north of UBCO. Steeper than I thought it was...

Midterms are done now (Finally!), so training should improve a bit for the next 2 weeks, drop off for a week (something about 4 exams in 5 days), and then be excellent for the rest of December.

Left in the remaining 2 weeks of school assignment wise:
- 2 Chem lab write-ups (1 this weekend)
- 1 Chem pre-lab (this weekend)
- 3 Bio Lab Assignments (2 this weekend)
- 1 Bio Formal Lab (6% of overall bio mark, start this weekend)
- 2 Bio Pre-Labs
- 1 Geography Assignment (worth 30% of overall Geography mark - so will be procrastinated)
- 1 Math Lab Group Project (6% of overall Calculus Mark - this weekend)
- About 4 short math assignments (all next weekend)

(rest day)

When my roommates and I first moved into our apartment in September, we figured we should buy a plunger, but never did.


Today was the day where we dealt with the consequences of that decision.

4 PM

Running 57:50 intensity: (27:50 @1) + (30:00 @2) 11.07 km (5:14 / km) +261m 4:40 / km

Breaking up the studying with a run. Really nice day out, almost feels like March, with the last bit of the snow melting and a warm breeze.

Cell biology midterm tomorrow, microbi lab Thursday, and Organic Chemistry midterm Friday. Gonna be a great week.

slept:12.0 (rest day)

Caught up on sleep last night, still feeling kind of tired and worn down, but much better than yesterday. Will be back to training tomorrow and for the rest of the week, as much as 2 midterms this week allow me to.


My training log is becoming slightly more viewed, which has it's ups and downs. I'm less likely to post more personal notes now, but just discovered the private note feature, which I am using for the first time today.
