Orienteering 22:02 [4]

The sprint at U-Mass Uni. set by Alex. Very neat area and an excellent sprint venue. Unfortunately, my lack of specific sprint training let itself known on #3 as I was scratching my head trying to figure out where the bag was until Joe yelled something behind the wall. Then got caught by Greg and was sloppy from then on. Spent almost a minute on the last # as I was trying to make sense of the parking lot and the fence where the streamers was tied to. A good training overall, though legs felt rather tired especially towards the end.

Running 10:15 [5] 3.0 km (3:25 / km)
ahr:174 max:189

The 3K TT. The plan was to stay warm, not to lose to girls, and not break anything. For the most part I stuck with it. Started slow, almost behind everyone, but by the end of the 1st lap pulled myself behind Ali, who was chasing Will and Neil. Ross disappeared behind the curve to not be seeing again. Followed Ali for 4.5 laps, but then Neil and Will began to pull away, so I pulled myself up to them. Then somewhere on lap 6 I began to feel pretty warm and pulled myself ahead and away. Felt pretty good afterwards, which is surprising given my training in the past few months, but I wasn't going for a PR neither. Certainly doing these types of time trials are a lot more useful with friends than alone.

Cross-training 15:00 [3]

The Superstars event. I participated in every event with exception to the bonus O on crutches, which brought some painful memories from the past. Biathlon was the one I enjoyed the most, though shooting basketball would've been even more fun, I think. Oh yea, the wife carrying run was a blast, especially with Neil turning at the wrong side of the poll and holding back the competition :).

Running 51:02 [3] 10.0 km (5:06 / km) +100m 4:52 / km

Took a day off from work and went for a run in Eagle Rock. Enormous amount of trees got uprooted with the past storm and I found a new trail in the northern part.
