Running 24:00 [3] 5.3 km (4:32 / km)

Ran a loop in PP after it just rained.

Biking 13:00 [3] 5.3 km (2:27 / km)

Took a bike wth me and rode a loop, as I am not really ready to switch to running completely yet, still can feel tightness in the achilles.

Running 29:00 [3] 5.5 km (5:16 / km)

Rather late run in PP, still can feel the r/achilles tho no serious pain throughout the run.

Biking 40:00 [3] 10.0 km (4:00 / km)

Easy biking along the Belt early in the morning, riding eastbound wasn't as pleasant due to rasing sun, tho enjoyed the ride back a lot.

Biking 40:00 [3] 10.0 km (4:00 / km)
(injured)

Biking along the Belt, stoped to see 5 years old kids smashing each other in what appeared to be a little league football game, on the way back.
Achilles feels better today, was able to walk normally at work and a little after.

Tuesday Sep 20, 2005 #

Biking 54:00 [3] 14.0 km (3:51 / km)
(injured)

Easy biking along the Belt, got stuck on the draw bridge on the way back, which was up to let some ship go through.

I don't plan any running this week as my right achilles appears to bother me just like it did after Alabama this year, hope to be ok next week.

Running 1:08:05 [3] 14.0 km (4:52 / km)
ahr:145 max:167

Two loops in FF with Greg, then wimped out of the third one, downsides outweighted the benefits of doing it on tired legs.

Saturday Sep 17, 2005 #

Orienteering 43:00 [4] 6.4 km (6:43 / km)
ahr:171 max:196

Red course in Ansonia (my most favorite woods in NE), boring course with exeption for a few legs, ran hard tho technique was sloppy at times.

Thursday Sep 15, 2005 #

Running 1:00:15 [3] 13.0 km (4:38 / km)

Relaxed run in FF in a pouring rain, this felt so awsome, I got soaked down to my underware, don't remember last time when it rained like that while I ran.

Tuesday Sep 13, 2005 #

Biking 40:00 [3] 10.0 km (4:00 / km)

Easy biking along the Belt. Wickedly humid day, felt sleepy from the morning, still can't wake up!

Orienteering 1:19:50 [3] 9.0 km (8:52 / km)

Mega-O
Cool course, too bad I had nothing left in me after yesterday's sprints. Bailed out after turning it in a bit of an exersise, memorizing ahead as much as possible and navigate by what I expected to see as I ran. Tired....

Overall an awsome weekend, tnx to all who made it possible, I am sure I am not alone on this one :)

Orienteering race 16:48 [5] 3.0 km (5:36 / km)

1 Round...
Felt very good, despite a little adventure with our car brakes that made us all a bit nervous. My orienteering clicked and legs felt very light. Enjoyed this one in particular as this was the most technical course among all 3 courses. Stayed ahead for the most of the race, with exeption for booming the very last control, where all 3 of us, Jon, Wil, and me were back together. Saw the boulder fist and spinted to the finish without looking back, this was a really close one.

Orienteering race 16:41 [5] 3.0 km (5:34 / km)

Round 2....
Stayed close to Mike for the entire race, enjoyed the following, us we cruised from feature to feature, keeping control of our direction and me checking on Eric progress behind us. We managed to create a gap after 11 control and confortably ran into the finish. This wasn't very technical course, rather a fast one that required lots of reading ahead.

Orienteering race 16:01 [5] 3.0 km (5:20 / km)

The Final.
This was as competitive heat as it can get in NA with all 4 capable runners.
Mike took off rather faster than perhaps anyone expected (may be Kata gave him this idea, after she took off as if it was 100m dash). I stayed behind for the first loop with Mike in the lead and John doing what I did in the last round, staying just behind Hummer. I had a cleaner run on the second loop by taking trail to the 7 and managed to get ahead just to be cought again by Eddie on sketchy 9 and then by Mike on 12. As we crossed the parking lot I was clean and first on 13 with Eddie disapearing somewhere in the green. I memorized the leg to 14 and ran as hard as I could and managed to build a little gap that was enough for me to finish ahead of Mike and Eddie.

Comment:
This win certainly came by surprise as I haven't specifically prepared myself for this race and am very happy to be able to win it like this. Although, Balter says that there were many factors that helped me out especially the format of these races. If this was done as usually with starts every 30sec or 1min Mike would've certainly won! But today my legs were the fastest out there, and I still can't stop wondering why is that.
