Running 1:02:20  7.52 mi (8:17 / mi)
I would have said this was like 5 miles, but I guess not. I completely zoned out running up Negley and missed my turn, which just meant I got to do a little extra uphill. Pretty good run though.
Strength 40:00 
Well I finally recovered from the trauma of barely being able to walk for several days after going to the gym last week, so I decided to give it another go. It was better this time and I'm hoping I'll be less sore, but I need to change some exercises around because my forearms were dying almost the entire time. Also, my left hamstring still felt a little bit off from whatever I did to it last week, but nothing too bad.
Split-leg lunges (30#)/Dumbbell bench press (25# per side)
Deadlifts (105#)/Assisted Chin-ups (8,8,6)
Barbell lunges (50#)/Curls (12.5#)
Supermans/Medicine ball twist (8#)
Planks (1:30 middle, 1 min each side)
Running 50:15  6.18 mi (8:08 / mi)
This run started with quite a bit of excitement as I witnessed an almost car accident. Luckily I was not involved, but it was still slightly terrifying. My legs still felt a little tired, but much better than yesterday. This was actually quite a nice run. I went up through squirrel hill and then came home through Schenley Park - I really like this route. For the second half I was in that good place where you feel like you're running pretty fast, but it doesn't really feel hard at all. Perfect running weather too :)
Running 48:20  5.63 mi (8:35 / mi)
So I was regretting some of my life choices when my alarm went off at 5:45AM on Monday morning, but I somehow managed to drag myself out of bed to go running anyway. My main motivation was knowing that I wasn't going to have time to go running after work today, and I knew I would regret it if I didn't go at all. I felt ok for the first half, although my legs are still slightly sore (I assume from the gym?) and definitely tired from everything I did this weekend. I started crashing around mile 3, which was right about when the main uphill started. I thought about cutting it short, which in hindsight would have been a wise decision. The extra loop was just a painful uphill, followed by running down the hill where knees go to die. Whatever, I made it home, but I really think I need a day off. Maybe Wednesday...
Orienteering 1:23:57  7.0 km (12:00 / km) +240m 10:14 / km
Orienteering at North Park today. It was going pretty good for the first half or so, in spite of my legs feeling pretty tired from the long run yesterday, but starting with control 7 things started going downhill pretty fast. I just barely missed control 7, which I know because after going in a giant circle, I got back to where I had originally thought it should be, thinking, 'boy, this sure looks familiar' and the control was literally right there. I couldn't have missed it by more than 10 meters the first time, but it was pretty hidden so you had to hit it straight on to see it. After that, things just didn't go so well. It started thunderstorming right after that and in the span of about 5 minutes I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference if I had jumped in a lake. At that point, I just wanted to finish the course, but there was still a decent amount of uphill which, needless to say, I was walking. Of course it had stopped raining by the time I got back but I still looked like I had jumped in a pool, and I didn't even think to bring a change of clothes. Not the best meet ever...
