Trail run 13:04 [2] 2.09 km (6:16 / km) +115m 4:55 / km

Again, running to the start.

orienteering 1:17:01 [5] 8.66 km (8:54 / km) +158m 8:09 / km

Another open course. I ripped my contact when trying to put it in my eye and had to go to the medical tent to have them help me get it out. So I ran with only one contact in. That messes up your depth perception a bit and it was hard to actually see the flags. Not as good as yesterday, but mostly due to only having one eye.

Trail run 12:09 [2] 1.86 km (6:32 / km)

Uh, maybe I warmed up? Yes, it was a long way to the start. I ran an open course of some sort today.

orienteering 40:20 [5] 4.75 km (8:29 / km) +178m 7:09 / km

If I remember correctly, today went well. I was running a bit slower because of my elbow, and was clean. The terrain was very challenging today, so go me!

Road run 22:11 [2] 2.97 km (7:28 / km) +41m 6:59 / km

Today I had surgery to get the pins removed from when I broke my elbow (twice) last summer. Super happy go get them out, as now I can do planks again and I no longer shout in pain when I bang my elbow in the shower. But now I have lots of stitches and it's a bit gross looking. Headed to Sundsvall for the weekend with Linné because I like hanging out with people more than sitting around alone at home. Plus, they're pretty awesome people.

Arrived and went running with Kate. She made sure I didn't fall into a ditch from being still woozy from the surgery drugs.

Road run 20:02 [3] 3.56 km (5:38 / km) +24m 5:27 / km

Warmup, running with Elisa and Anna over to the hill where Elisa decided we were going to run hills. Beautiful day and I managed to carry on about 5 minutes of conversation in Swedish before I ran out of vocabulary. Progress!

Trail run (Hills) 48:28 [5] 8.54 km (5:40 / km) +252m 4:57 / km

Beautiful day for a hill workout. 10 x 1 minute hills with jogging rest back down to the bottom (1.30 or so). Hardest part was feeling motivated to get out the door. Worked hard on the hills and felt light and strong. Nice.

Then jogging back home, stopping by a hittaut point that Elisa and Anna hadn't yet collected. I really love the trainingsbank on the Linné website.

Road run (Hittaut) 1:33:21 [3] 17.41 km (5:22 / km) +209m 5:04 / km

I missed the two group trainings tonight, and didn't sign up for the race that Sam went to in Stockholm. Instead, I went for a nice Hittaut run down south, on the pretext of needing to return the clubhouse key for the computer storage room.

Listening to Tiesto's Club Life podcasts for a constant stream of techno and remembering the codes by making a sentence/string of words as I went.

Only a week until the Blodomloppet 10k, my coworkers are training hard too, should be fun!

Travel Day - Prep Day

Both flights on my return were delayed by an hour or more, but I made it back to the apartment by 8:30 pm local time. I was pretty tired after the long distance on Sunday and then the travel. Very grateful to all those who helped drive me around this weekend, especially Alex and Ed for really taking charge of me.

After a lovely dinner prepared by Sam, I headed back out to get some things together in preparation for a junior meet we're putting on tomorrow evening. Programming SI controls, sorting them into piles for the placement teams, and then biking to get the equipment locker key so I can pull together a few club laptops and printers to build the download station tomorrow.

We've got almost 300 juniors and beginners signed up. Very cool.
