Orienteering race (Middle) 32:48 [4] 3.5 km (9:22 / km) +140m 7:49 / km

I intended this to be the only of the TT races I did. But then it went really, really well, so kept racing....!

So I walked over to the start, happily chatting with Greg W and not at all nervous because it didn't matter, I wasn't going to be fast enough to make the team, so it was really about being accurate and getting some more good training in Harriman in.

But then I started and I guess because I wasn't going my usual full-out speed, I ran a remarkably clean course. And I'll be honest, was definitely more than 'just-a-jog'. =) Hard to not be somewhat competitive out there! Only a few slightly bobbles toward the end, a bit distracted by running near Karen. Felt like I should be able to pass her, since I caught her, and I tried to do so by upping running speed instead of just staying super in touch with the map.... Really enjoyed it!
3 PM

Orienteering race 12:40 [4] 2.1 km (6:02 / km)

And then was really nervous for this one. Because I wasn't sure if I could run fast enough to have a decent sprint. But I guess I am mostly better, because I could run, not my normal speed, but fast enough.

Didn't go straight to 1, visited the men's control first. Other than that, was pretty smooth, although looking at times, might have been faster to stay on the road a bit down to 14, lost some time there.

Forgot to take resting HR when up... Oops! But felt pretty good all day, although my right tonsil is now bugging me. I was super psyched to go for a slightly longer jog this eve, but I think I better lie low and see if I can avoid a worsening sore throat.... Surely it's time for me to actually get better???? C'mon body!

Running 13:00 [1]
rhr:54 slept:8.5

Woo, first jog since Harriman training! Felt kinda weird, IT bands are way tight for some reason. Wasn't immediately wiped, so hopefully doesn't set me back, will see what HR is like tomorrow morning....

Darn it, HR goes higher again, no jog today. =(

rhr:56 slept:8.0

Hmm, so I kept taking my heartrate this morning because I really wanted it to be as low or close to yesterday so I could go for my first jog. But 56 was as low as it got...

Also felt a bit weak/tired for most of the day, so decided not to chance it. I'm totally coming back, but have a strong preference to not be a super-zombie again, so am being careful. So silly that just an hours walk yesterday wiped me out today!!
