Orienteering race (Brescia House) 22:55 [5] **** 3.8 km (6:02 / km) +95m 5:22 / km
ahr:185 max:195 rhr:40 slept:8.0 shoes: Saloman SpeedCross

Second Short Course event. New 1:4000 map with an intricate school part, open park area and a big hill in between.
I strained my quads a bit on Friday night because of a poor warmup. Felt that today. Lungs didn't bother me. I lost 20s up the hill to Jeremy though, and he doesn't do hills!
Technically I was sharp. A few small hesitations due to well hidden controls. One 20 sec fence problem, but other wise it went smoothly. It was very tricky and I enjoyed it a lot.
Finished about 35 sec ahead of Jeremy. Eugene is getting fit in 3rd. Ian in 5th!

Run (Valentines 10km) 46:27 [5] 10.0 km (4:39 / km)
ahr:177 max:194 slept:8.0 shoes: Asics Gel 1120

My lungs did pretty well, but I coughed quite a bit. I was pretty happy considering the past week.
I started with Lewt, Dan and Sarah. We put our bags in the car and came back to find ourselves at the very back of the queue. I spent most of the race getting through the crowds.
Fun race. Lewt, Dan and Sarah had good debut 10km races. Also the most AR Club runners I've ever seen!

Run (Wichwood) 24:02 [1] 3.6 km (6:41 / km)
ahr:120 max:147 slept:8.5 shoes: Asics Gel 1120

Another easy run with Sarah. I had a long day with a very frustrating electronics lab. Sigh...

Swim 22:00 [2] 0.8 km (27:30 / km)

Easy swim. Had a bit of trouble breathing with some phlegm in my throat.
I tried the Wits pool, and it is really nice. Its a bit on view, but you don't really notice...

Run (Wichwood) 25:00 [1] 3.01 km (8:18 / km)
ahr:121 max:150 shoes: Asics Gel Orient

Slooow run with Sarah. We're both recovering from the throat cough thing and hoping to do the 10km on Friday.

rhr:38 slept:9.0 (sick)

I had a sore throat on Sat and a slight cough developed yesterday. I don't feel too bad, but I'm not happy about the timing. I feel that whenever I don't have a specific training goal in sight or I'm taking it easy for a few weeks, I get sick.

Had another diabetes trail appointment. RHR 38, BP 138/90 (not 100% sure, can't quite remember) and weight 68.7 with clothes on.
HbA1c is 6.8% which indicates average sugar between 7.5 and 9. Doc says that since my pre-meal readings are usually 4-8, its the 2 hours after eating whens its getting up to 8-12. Going to try injecting 15 min before meals when my sugar is 5-8.
