29 Day Challenge Day 6

I seem to have picked up a little bug that's going around. After sleeping 10 hours last night I'm still pretty out of it. Priority is to rest reallly hard so that I can hit the ground running in Tucson. I also don't want to get too far behind in the challenge so I went for a walk around my parents' neighborhood with a TSS/Navigabl exercise.

It was clear very quickly that the four quadrant exercise is a bit too trivial while walking so I made sure to walk more quickly and with a bounce to simulate running better. I also added in finding a rock solid route choice for each leg to get a bit more out of the map.

(rest day)

Today's effort was printing a few more TSS exercises. I didn't really have any time today that wasn't at work or with Lukas, and rather than do a late night junk indoor exercise just to keep the challenge going I figured it made more sense to go for 29 days in as few days as possible and take a rest.

Maybe I'll do a double effort somewhere to get 29 orienteering workouts in 29 days still!

7 AM

Running intervals (road/track) 1:07:07 intensity: (18 @0) + (30:09 @1) + (33:42 @2) + (2:46 @3) + (10 @4) + (2 @5) 11.36 km (5:54 / km)

29 Day Challenge Day 5

To the track!

3 x [400m + 2:30]       (90, 93, 92)
1 x 1600@10k + 4:00     (7:11)
3 x [200 + 2:00]        (45, 43, 42)

This was fine. Not the fastest ever but fast enough. It's amazing how much more energy I have now than I did a month and two months ago. I have optimistically resolved (on AP) the 80+ day illness.

I did a TSS exercise on the run to and from, with a goal of getting it all done in that time (I did). It was a zoom/memorization map flip one and I got much faster as I went. I think part of it is refining the language in my head to describe exactly where things are. I also think part of the point of such an exercise is to be able to build a 3D picture in your head and place the control on that 3D mental model, but I find that it's difficult to pinpoint the exact contour squiggle without a verbal description. I don't know what this means.

29 Day Challenge Day 4

Out to do the last 3 sprintervals at Science Park. I caught myself losing focus a few times, as I did last night, but was able to catch myself and refocus this time.

29 Day Challenge Day 3

Ran to MIT and did a score-style course from the corner of Vassar and Mass Ave. I think it might have just been an all-controls map from one of the NG evening races. The map sucks but my orienteering wasn't much better. Really just lazy map reading and thinking. I wasn't unfocused, something that's easy to be if you are in an area that you think of as familiar. Good practice to figure out how not to be like that.

We had a last minute playdate/pickup offer which gave us a bit of time in the apartment together, awake, and without Lukas, so we got some SWSW stuff done. Definitely would not have gone out for a run after that had it not been for the challenge. I wonder how long that kind of motivation is going to last.
