Running 15:00 [2]

Warm up / down

Orienteering 1:32:07 [4]

Started out ok, but had quite a few stutters... generally map read too much when I should have been simplifying and running harder.
4 - exited 3 at a bad angle
5 - went through the crappy green near 4... should have just gone around.
6 - hook into the control
7 - exited 6 at a bad angle and climbed waaaay too much over the hill when I meant to go around to the left. Lost 30s-1min.
9 - took water after punching at 8, then got confused and thought I was navigating to 10 since I had been looking at the long leg... realized pretty quickly.
11 - my compass and I had an argument / I was not paying enough attention to my compass. Lost ~1min.
15 - unconfident, checked other nearby control number even though I should have known it was not mine. Lost 20s.
17 - bad angle out of 16.

Running 30:00 [3]

Almost late for the start, since a long wait between buses... ran up the hill for what seemed like forever, and started 4 mins after I got there.
Warm back down the hill after with Pam.

Orienteering 40:22 [4]

Really nice terrain, enjoyed myself very much in this race. Used the marshes, hilltops, and lines of cliffs a lot. Often had some trouble in the circle...
Main problem was #7, where I appear to have lost time to my route choice (should have just gone straight and not tried to use the trail) as well as to a significant bobble in the circle (going to the similar feature right next to it) - lost about 30s.

Running 20:00 [2]

Warm up + short warm down

Orienteering 17:16 [4]

Some good legs, some bad... generally not feeling like I could get any speed.
Main problems:
2 - should have just gone around on the trail (lost 10-20s)
11- screwed up and went down the trail under the powerline instead of the other trail (lost 30-40s).

Stretching/exercises 5:00 [1]

Little bit of stretching by myself, since no one came to yoga at lunch today.

Running 40:00 [3]

Warm up, rests, warm down, and silly walks

Intervals 15:11 [5] 4.0 km (3:48 / km)

First attempt at track intervals since before the pneumonia... felt rather lacking in form for running on the track.
5 times 800m with Thomas (or should I say far behind Thomas), slow 1st one, 2nd and 4th ones there was a guy just ahead about my pace which helped.
1:51 rest
2:02 rest
1:48 rest
2:12 rest
