Orienteering 58:42 [2] *** 8.36 km (7:01 / km) +147m 6:27 / km
ahr:150 max:171 26c

First training in Denmark for the trip! The training wasn't especially relevant for JWOC, but it was a good training course to warmup my compass skillz or lack there of. I made some mistakes, some larger than others. I felt like the terrain was pushing me around a bit, and I'm not sure I was able to focus as much as I should have been. Overall, a good warmup for the coming trainings were I need to focus on using my compass and learning as much as I can about the terrain.

The terrain I'll be training in for the next few days will be highly relevant for JWOC, I'll post maps and try to take pictures of the terrain.

Orienteering (Night) 1:03:05 [3] **** 9.28 km (6:48 / km) +172m 6:13 / km
ahr:154 max:170 11c

Second training in Denmark, this one was a light training. Again, the course had a heavy focus on the use of compass, which was made even more effective in the dark. For the most part it went alright, I was able to keep a good course most of the time, but I often think I was somewhere I wasn't went I started following the course. My mistakes where mostly going into the control, and sometimes I didn't make any mistakes whatsoever! A really fun and interesting course, and I will concede and say that there are some hills in Denmark.

Run 1:18:03 [2] 12.78 km (6:06 / km) +423m 5:14 / km
ahr:151 max:203

Longer and more relaxing run along roads. Didn't push myself at all, and I didn't feel any pain in my legs until about an 50 minutes in. Nice run, too much snow though.

Run intervals 42:26 [3] 7.88 km (5:23 / km) +206m 4:46 / km
ahr:144 max:191

Local intervals got canceled due to the snow, so I went out and did them myself! It was a good workout, but my calves are still killing me whenever I run on hard surfaces (studded shoes don't help). I ran 700m(approx) four time, so longer intervals than normal. I was able to run the first three just fine, but then my calves told me to stop. After that I "ran" up back home, planning on making sure to do whatever I can to help against the pain.

Run long 1:52:21 [4] 12.87 km (8:44 / km) +769m 6:43 / km
ahr:156 max:172

Long run through new snow. Really tough to push through it, especially up the hills. It was a long run and kinda fun to run through the snow, but I'll be feeling it for a few days!
