Base Builder (Canoe-O) 1:05:00 [3]

Paddled the Canoe O with Siobhan. I had a great time. It felt good to change the workout medium from legs to arms. We had a little miscommunication at the start that cost us some major time, otherwise we could have been up towards the top. I look forward to more Canoe-Os!

Orienteering (Pawtuckaway Brown) 36:00 [4]

I decided to run an additional course after my poor showing on the blue. I hit the controls pretty well, I was a bit out of contact when I found the second control but I knew I was in the right area, still a bad error. After that the race flowed well.

Orienteering (Pawtuckaway Blue Course) 1:30:00 [4]

I had a pretty shakey run. I messed up the first control, I was right on my way to the control but just panicked. The mistake was a combination of being unused to the map, taking a bad route choice and lack of confidence. I then proceeded to make a continuous flow of errors at most controls. I did get it together towards the end but I still wasn't running very fast. What awesome terrain!!! I think that Pawtuckaway would be a great place for a long training camp.

Orienteering (VAMPIRE O) 45:00 [3]

Ran the Vampire O with Victoria. We did well, got vamped once and then evaded the vampiric freaks by sneaking in the backway at the end. We hit all of the controls. My first Vampire O was a blast!!!

Base Builder (In terrain) 50:00 [2]

A quick run around UMASS to check out the forest nearby. It is definitely suitable for terrain running but no mapping. I felt good, and never was breathing hard. Although, my legs were a little tired from yesterday's course at the Notch.

Orienteering 1:30:00 [3]

Ran an old A meet course with PG at the Notch. I had some trouble, but that is expected with some new terrain. I also didn't run too fast, because of my past over training. I hope to be in better control of my skills over the next few days. The forest was green and the nav pretty difficult especially in the green areas. Tried to work on my control taking plan as well as just plain planning ahead at all controls. I hope for better concentration in the coming weeks, especailly at Pawtuckaway on sat/sun.

Physical Activity 15:00 [2]

Just running around campus + getting up to my car.

Base Builder 32:00 [2]

A short jog to get the legs moving, all in the plan to recover from some over training. My legs felt strong, and ready to run more.
