Orienteering race 55:18  7.4 km (7:28 / km) +220m 6:30 / km
Red course in HR at DVOA Training Camp. This was a surprisingly hot day so I bailed out of the blue course at the registration, plus I learned that most people would be running the red course anyway. The plan was to go out and see how my R-knee would feel after resting it for some time and focus on the map reading. I can say that this was probably the cleanest race I've ran in a long long time. The fact that I wasn't pushing it helped me to keep my focus on the map and my compass at almost all the times. The knee mostly held up and only began to really hurt near the end. It feels somewhat stiff and very sore today after having it wrapped up in the ice after I came home. Hopefully it would feel better in two weeks.
