Orienteering race 19:45 [4] *** 2.6 km (7:36 / km) +80m 6:35 / km
spiked:12/13c slept:5.0 shoes: Nike Reds

Sprint at Fair Hill. I ran a lot harder than was probably smart, given the schedule for the rest of the weekend, but it felt great to run really hard and (mostly) nail the controls. Just one mistake, but it was big (75 seconds). A new orienteering "speed" PR for me! It's good to know that I'm capable of orienteering that fast.

Running 25:00 [2] 2.5 mi (10:00 / mi) +20m 9:45 / mi
shoes: Kayano XI - white

Quick run at night after another long flying day. Felt great, especially at first. Good rest, I guess. A hint of annoyance in front of the left knee again. Argh.

Strength/Core 15:00 [1]

Quick upper body touch-up (it's been a while...) at the gym after the run. Making progress.

(rest day)

Based on how I felt yesterday, and all the orienteering this weekend, today is officially a resting day. Too bad it was otherwise quite unproductive. :-(

Running (trail) 46:41 [2] 4.05 mi (11:32 / mi) +180m 10:08 / mi
slept:9.0 shoes: Asics Trail

Wow, really really tired today. Totally exhausted after 3 steps. Time to take it easy this week. Yesterday was a very long day of flying stuff after not enough rest, or possibly food and water. It was nice to be out in the woods, even though it was sticky out!

Orienteering race 1:53:00 [4] *** 7.6 km (14:52 / km) +240m 12:50 / km
ahr:169 max:188 spiked:8/17c slept:9.0 shoes: Nike Reds

Better than yesterday. Not stellar, but sort of mediocre, in a sloppy way. I do recall having some negative thoughts while running the course, mostly along the lines of "I'm tired of Texas". Very scraggly stuff that I seem to have a real problem with. I'm not only moving slowly, but not really paying attention to the map, because I'm paying so much attention to the spiky stuff that's catching my clothes every other step.

Interesting HR trend. Wonder if it's less work, or because my body was more worn than I realized.

Event: Texoma

Orienteering race 2:00:20 [4] *** 7.33 km (16:25 / km) +150m 14:54 / km
ahr:175 max:193 spiked:9/19c slept:8.0 shoes: Nike Reds

At first pretty bummed - not nearly as clean overall as last week, and two large errors. The terrain wasn't nearly as fast as I thought it would be, and perhaps not as fast as the course setter expected. Fastest time was only 75, and there were plenty of people slower than I who wouldn't normally take so long, so maybe it wasn't as bad a day as I thought. ;-) (PMA!)

Knee felt a-okay, thank goodness. Still treating! Hopefully tomorrow will go better. Both big mistakes today involved me thinking, "this doesn't look quite right" while running uphill, and not stopping to see that it was really quite wrong. The 1:7500 scale messed with me, I failed to realize how easy it was to be off a seemingly large distance on the map! Now I know...
