Sunday Apr 7 #

8 AM

Running warm up/down (road) 12:00 [2] 2.0 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: Kara (Roadclaw 275 V2)

Warmup. About 10 minutes of running with some pickups and then some quick LMLS. Already regretting the long sleeves. Not regretting the shorts.
9 AM

Running race (road) 22:53 intensity: (7:55 @1) + (5:25 @2) + (3:10 @3) + (6:01 @4) + (22 @5) 5.0 km (4:35 / km)
ahr:156 max:184 shoes: Kara (Roadclaw 275 V2)

Cambridge City Race, 5K

This did not feel good in a lot of ways but it is nice to have it done. Had a rough week with bad sleep and a lot of headaches -- not sure if it is allergies or a sinus thing or both, but running yesterday seemed not to make anything worse so I figured I might as well get out today and get it done.

I ran by feel (there were no mile markers and I did not look at my watch) and made sure not to go too hard at the beginning. Probably was a bit too hard because I hadn't been running very long before I had the thought that training is a lot more fun than racing. Just tried to keep up with the folks around me and then finish strong. I don't feel like I had a lot more left in me (HR looks suspiciously low based on how I finished) but it also just felt sluggish and compressed as far as race pain -- didn't feel as light and easy the first third and didn't feel as deathly awful in the last third as I think it should. So I think that there is more in there that I can bring out with more racing and hard workouts, in addition to whatever increases in fitness I can work in. And reduction in jiggly middle.

A positive from today is that it's easy to see that future road races will result in some masters PBs for myself! Also I think it's weird that this was the first time I have ever run around Fresh Pond.
11 AM

Orienteering 23:55 intensity: (34 @1) + (14:27 @2) + (8:28 @3) + (7 @4) + (19 @5) 2.89 km (8:16 / km)
ahr:161 max:188 shoes: Alex (TrailTalon 275)

After the race at Fresh Pond we headed directly to the orienteering at Beaver Brook, which was a Youth Series event. I had told a lot of people about today and a surprising number had expressed interest. Happy to see two entire families show up and really enjoy themselves. I went around the string course with Lukas, my mom and her dog, Linn, and Malcolm (also 3). Eventually I went out on Sprint 1 as my post-race cooldown. Probably would have been a lot more fun if my legs had had some pep in them but it was still nice to run around with a map.

Really beautiful day today. And we should really have string-o at every event. Wide age appeal and several of the kids ran it multiple times to try to beat their time, so you get a lot of mileage out of it.

Don't delay, time to buy your access to the 2019 Tiomila Web TV stream. I hear that the English speakers are going to be really something else this year!

2 PM

Running (trail) 1:00:20 intensity: (42 @0) + (10:39 @1) + (48:08 @2) + (51 @3) 8.3 km (7:16 / km)
ahr:149 max:171 shoes: Alex (TrailTalon 275)

Easy trail miles in Weston. Did something approximating a perimeter loop.

This is going to be a long spring if every day involves slapping myself in the face a few times in order to psych myself up enough to go for a run. Not sure my Wal-Zyr is helping much but it's hard to say without access to a control Cristina.
