Team Trials Long.
My other favorite race, although I didn't execute this as well. I was moving along at a normal pace, finding controls with a normal amount of bobbles. Then I made a parallel error on 8 - caused from not taking a good route there. I didn't even see the trail around and I went straight- or tried to. I had trouble staying on a clean line. Then 12 was a much larger mistake. I picked a route out a few controls earlier, but then revised it to something far worse. I wobbled all around trying to find my line, going back and forth and covering more distance than necessary. Then I came close to the circle and did something weird and climbed funny. Climbed back and didn't see the control from below. Climbed above it and then ran back and forth once along the cliff until I located it. Yep, kind of like a headless chicken. Very careful on 13, but was too low and it appears I lost a bit more time there (30 seconds?). Clean on the trail to 14 and 15. Great route to 16, but then though the reentrant ran along the trail and so thought the control was higher than it really was. Climbed way too high and only got clued in when the hill started to slope downhill.
Overall, certainly not a horrible race. Plenty of things went well. Redoing 12 would be great :)

Easy run around the camp to loosen up the legs in the morning.

Team Trails Sprint.
Great race, no real mistakes, lots of super fast running. Super fun running around campus - I really enjoy sprints :) Although I would miss the woods if I did them all the time. I slightly overran 1 in my excitement, but just made a sharp left to compensate. Only slight mistake would be going around the building on the way to 8 (not realizing that there were stairs in the tunnel - and I thought I was so clever!). But I only lost 4 seconds to the fastest time there, so not too bad of a choice. Yay for running fast, clean and powerful!

Peter's Hill Park-O. I don't know if I'm just more wimpy thatn everyone else, but the grass was killing me. I could withstand the pain for most of it, but by the time I was going to 13 it became unbearable. Just it whipping against my legs was drawing blood and today my knees are all raw.

I meant to do so much more than apply for one job. But translating the entire application process into English took awhile. I'm not ever sure what I just applied for. And maybe since it was all in Swedish they actually want someone who speaks Swedish...

Went to Wilson Mountain with Dad and ran two laps of the loop at threshold. My HR is all wonky and was, again, no where near what I consider threshold. I got it up to 177 a few times going uphill, but it was hovering around 170, which is just super low. At the same time, I think I ran 2 PRs in a row for the loop - probably because I was pushing so hard trying to get my HR higher.
