Orienteering race 3:03:30 intensity: (48:30 @2) + (30:00 @3) + (1:45:00 @4) 25.0 km (7:20 / km) +700m 6:26 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

An excellent run at the US Long O' champs, leading by a good margin, until I hit a total no-man's land on the map. Very disappointed afterwards to know I was doing so well and that I'd lost it because I trusted the map which was totally irregularly detailed in the area the course setters chose to use.

I lost it physically too after the point where I over-trusted the map and made my biggest error in years, so it's unclear if, had that map been solid there, if I'd have been able to hold pace enough for the last 20-30 minutes to keep the lead, but still quite disappointed about the end result vs. what it should've been.

That said, the terrain and well-mapped parts were great, the water/drink/food stops were very nice, and trying hard to pull away from Maricel for an hour was fun too, and the weather was good. So despite the map issues and late in race exhaustion, I generally enjoyed the day.

Running warm up/down 12:00 [2] 2.2 km (5:27 / km)
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

Not the best warm-up/cooldown for the Sprint, and a short warmup for the Middle

Orienteering race 14:39 intensity: (4:39 @4) + (10:00 @5) 2.99 km (4:54 / km) +50m 4:31 / km
ahr:175 max:181 shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

Solid effort on a forest/field sprint after a week of rest netted a 2nd-place-US in the Sprint O' champs. Quite happy with that result.

Caught some USMA traffic and battled one USMA guy & Maricel for a bit, pushing past them, then had Erin (after a mistake) catch me and we went back and forth a bit with him clearly faster and me navigating more confidently. As Erin continues to get more solid in his navigation he could easily top the US charts...

Orienteering 37:59 [4] 6.49 km (5:51 / km) +211m 5:02 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

A reasonable run at the middle distance non-champs event. Could've been a bit cleaner. Fell hard at one point after locking my R-knee on a downhill. After a scary few moments of a numb R-leg, it recovered over the next minute or two so I could complete the race (although much more tentatively on the downhills...)

Running 29:11 intensity: (24:11 @2) + (5:00 @4) 5.28 km (5:32 / km) +65m 5:12 / km
shoes: R-NB-Gray-460's 2nd pair

A 500m & 800m interval as tests in the middle of an easy run. R-front-leg still 'tired', but not degrading too bad.

Running 16:33 [1] 2.92 km (5:40 / km) +50m 5:13 / km

Running 16:33 [1] 3.1 km (5:20 / km) +35m 5:03 / km

Running 45:53 [1] 7.79 km (5:53 / km) +236m 5:07 / km
shoes: R-NB-Gray-460's 2nd pair

Mostly with Angelica, but by the end, the R-foot-flexor got tired/sore enough that I decided to alternate running and walking.

Monday Sep 14, 2009 #

Running 20:00 [1] 3.18 km (6:17 / km)
ahr:111 max:126 shoes: R-NB-Gray-460's 2nd pair

Waited until evening to give the foot flexor as much rest as possible. From a little sore in the morning, it went to not noticable in the evening. During the run, it got 'tired' around 10-15 minutes, to the point of beginning to border on sore near the end of 20 minutes. DT'ing lightly and stretching a bit now...
