Warmed up with a 6:40 mile. then did 12 x 400m workout at 80 second pace with 60 seconds rest. Splits 81, 78, 81,81,80,80, 80, 80, 80, 79, 79, 78. Erin and I switched the lead every other one. I felt good and diden't even feel it until the ninth quarter. I warmed down by jogging a mile. I am going to do this same workout every week, but drop two seconds off each quarter, every time i run it.

Orienteering race (Second Day IS A-meet) 39:50 [4] **** 6.7 km (5:57 / km) +255m 5:00 / km
spiked:14/17c slept:6.0 weight:140lbs shoes: Integrator

I felt really sluggish and tired at the start of the Green-ISVM course today, but I tried a new strategy of map reading that really helped me on the course today. going from 2-3 i had a slow but clear passage, so i read ahead and planned out my routes for the next 7 controls, and then after i had punched 3, i had a long field leg to number 4, so i looked at the rest of the course and then reviewed and memorized all the controls after 4. This really helped me in the later stages of the race, because i could feel myself losing focus and getting really tired, but i diden't make any big mistakes because i knew where i was going. Becuase i memorized the last 4 controls, i could really pick it up after 13 and give everything i had into the finish. I was really surprised at my time when i finished, because i thought i was going alot slower today than yesterday, but i guess that today i had better route choices. I loved the bagpiper at the finish chute, i think we should have one at every A-meet.
