Orienteering race 1:37:27 [3] *** 7.0 km (13:55 / km) +285m 11:34 / km
ahr:170 max:194 16c shoes: Integrators (Red)

WOC Tour Day 1. Tricky, and quite sloppy O by me. Definitely more difficult than yesterday (both days were in the same terrain as the WOC races held earlier in the day). Way past my bedtime, so full analysis later.

Strength/Core (stretching) 8:00 [1]

Stretch just before bed (after the movie).

Orienteering 1:00:39 [3] 4.6 km (13:11 / km) +220m 10:38 / km
shoes: Integrators (Red)

Ran the "Put & Run" race right after the middle quali (and lunch...eugh). Lots and lots of bobbles... and two significant mistakes (2-3 minutes) on the same leg! Crazy. BUT, it was a ton of fun, and even though I wasn't really in the mood for O when I started, I was definitely loving it by the end. The course (open women's A) had the same first half as the women's A heat, and the same second half as the women's B heat for the qualifying races.

Event: WOC 2006

(rest day)

Drizzly day in Aarhus, and a good time to chill for a bit. The middle q is tomorrow, followed by long q on Sunday + first day of WOC Tour. So I figured I'd be totally immersed in the Team USA activities at the race site tomorrow, followed by some kind of run... then be ready to go for the first spectator race Sunday.

Orienteering 56:00 [3]
slept:8.0 shoes: Integrators (Red)

Ran the first half of a course that Tom set on the Silkeborg Sonderskov 1:10,000 map. I was only going to run that much because my right quad was tweaky. But it felt fine while running, so I wanted to do more. I didn't have it in my mind to do the rest of the course, so instead I ran the first half again, since I'd never re-run anything before. The results are telling: 32 minutes versus 23 minutes. And I wasn't running significantly faster (just more continously).

Strength/Core (streching) 10:00 [1]

Good evening stretch.

Orienteering 1:05:00 [3] ***
slept:8.0 shoes: Integrators (Red)

Trained on the "middle distance" relevant map west of Silkeborg. We ran one of the Swiss courses that Sandra had - total course was somewhere between 5 and 6, and I skipped two controls.

Ran the first several controls and a fairly chill pace, then picked it up for the middle section, more like "race pace". Probably would have done the rest pretty hard, but I accidentally went to 18 instead of 15, and simultaneously developed a flying fan club of insects. They must have followed me for about a kilometer and it was very distracting. The rest of my run (15-19-20-F) was mostly an attempt to get rid of the bugs. They were quick, and I couldn't lose them! Crazy.

It was a good trianing run, really fun running through the white woods. It took me a little bit to get into the map. It's also tough to orienteer without bags, since you don't get that instant gratifier of the gleaming white and orange...

Strength/Core (stretching) 5:00 [1]

After the morning training... but before the beach visit. :-)

Orienteering 1:00:00 [2] ***

Easy intensity training - line-o and control picking - on the "very relevant" middle map south of Silkeborg (Ryekol). It was a very small area but there was some interesting stuff. In particular, I found the wide open area with lots of contour detail sort of tricky. You'd think it would be easy, since you can see everything, but maybe it was distracting to be able to see so much. It would sort of be like AZ desert orienteering, except the features were much smaller. Sort of like a center for ants.

Orienteering 26:40 [3] *** 2.9 mi (9:12 / mi)
shoes: Integrators (Red)

Afternoon training - picked Sandra up at the train station and said "yo, we're training right now!" She took it well.

Boris drew up a very fine sprint course on the Botanisk Have map... the botanical gardens in Aarhus. Ross and Boris set out paper "streamers" to make it oodles of fun, though I'm not sure why Boris is doing this rather than one of us who isn't racing. The park was really neat, and it was tons of fun running. I seem to jive well with the 1:4000 scale, like it just makes sense. Plus, of course, it's open and you can see stuff, which makes it easier.

Ran parts of this at a "2", and plenty at a "3", with maybe some at a "4".

Orienteering 20:00 [1] ***
shoes: Integrators (Red)

Going back over part of the sprint with Sam, Sandra, and Hill.

I just thought it was neat that they had free wifi in the terminal in rejkyavik. Nice perk.
