Running 15:00 [2] 1.76 mi (8:31 / mi)

w/up and w/dn with Nate before and after sprint.

Orienteering race 16:16 [5] *** 2.6 km (6:15 / km) +80m 5:25 / km

My calf held out ok for the duration of the Fair Hills Sprint. Since we could choose our start times, I gave Nate a 2-minute head start, thinking I would probably pass him in the middle of the course. I was navigating pretty cleanly and running at a reasonable speed (my only bad hesitation on the way to C6 - first because I wasn't sure I stayed on the trail heading S, then when I got to the field, I saw the 3 individual trees across the way, but couldn't see the bag on the middle one. Then I remembered good old C9 at the Flying Pig and "confidently" ran towards the middle tree until the bag became visible), but did not even see Nate until C9, when he came in from the right and punched while I was coming past the trail. I thought I had him at C10 when I cut thru the woods and he went all the way to the field, but he beat me to the punch by several seconds. I chased him the rest of the way, but he did not hesitate, and I could not close the gap at all. It turned out that 8 of our 14 splits were within 2 seconds, and 2 others were only 5 seconds apart.

Lots of ice and vitamin i for the calf.

(injured) (rest day)

Planned a day off, but didn't expect to be trying to treat a calf injury.

Running 32:09 [2] 4.0 mi (8:02 / mi)

Went out for an easy run on a beautiful fall day, and noticed by right achilles was a little tight (had noticed it pushing off on turns while swimming yesterday). No big deal. Then, about 1.5 miles in, the lower part of my left calf started barking. The fun, easy run became a struggle to survive. I was planning on taking tomorrow off anyway, so hopefully that will be enough to recover.

Running 15:00 [2] 0.6 mi (24:59 / mi)

w/up and extra running with Nate

Orienteering 30:12 [3] *** 3.8 km (7:57 / km)

Course 3 at Webster Park with Nate. I gave him a head start on each leg so he would have to navigate on his own. Splits:

I spiked C5, going pretty straight. Nate went around on trails (which came within 50m of the control), but couldn't figure out where to cut in. I went out to "help", but couldn't find it from that direction, so we went back out to my attack point, came in, and I told him he had gone too far. We couldn't find it, so we went further, and there it was. I guess I can be distracted even by another orienteer that I am working with, let alone a random person that may not be on the same course.

Hashing 1:30:00 [1] 6.5 mi (13:51 / mi)

Long trail (over 2 hours) that went past dark (winding up with a Back Check - 80, that took us back over 1+1/4 miles. Much of the flour was washed out by the thunderstorm that came through in the hour just before the hash, so help was needed from the hares.

Running 20:00 [3] 2.86 mi (7:00 / mi)

At Tim's sectional meet. Saw the boys, had to leave before the exciting girls race (they won, but the team they beat gets to go to states).
