trail run 16:39  2.84 km (5:51 / km) +40m 5:28 / km
Running over to backbana. It's slightly shorter from the current house than from the apartment on Blodstendvägen. Nice that I can run a trail almost the whole way.
trail run 35:44  5.3 km (6:44 / km) +229m 5:33 / km
Backbana. Told myself to try to go under 45 minutes, which was easily done. The first hill continues to have more and more trees down across it, making it really hard to actually run up. Also more trees down on a hill towards the end. I also ran the wrong way, oops! I did a longer loop at the beginning. Instead of cutting up the first uphill trail I ran to the second, making the course maybe about 400m longer? Really hot out there, but tried to run all the uphills except for the sandy one, which felt more eroded than usual. The breeze across the top as I was heading into the last two hills was the most wonderful thing ever, as there was almost no breeze on the climbs in the forest.
This did give me new respect for past me, who ran this in 28 minutes. Man, I was fast and strong! At 28 minutes I was still climbing the first of the last 3 big hills. :)
trail run 16:14  2.67 km (6:05 / km) +26m 5:48 / km
I ended feeling thirsty, but not dying. On the run home though I just got more and more thirsty and was imagining stopping at houses and asking for water. Focused on putting one foot in front of the other and made it home. Downed 3 glasses of water and then took a cold shower. Really should have carried a bottle with me to stash at the finish, even just to dump over my head.
Drove to another beach in Knivsta today, which was lovely. Didn't exercise though. So hot out.
road&trail run 1:00:00  8.0 km (7:30 / km)
Ran to and from the beach with Mom and Dad, pushing Sofie. Met Kate and Rassmus there as it was too hot for them to be in their apartment. We're all melting. 30C+ is just too hot for me, even without extreme humidity.
Sofie loves swimming. She likes walking into the water, bouncing up and down, and watching all the other kids.
And then the long drive back to Uppsala. Sofie took two 1.5 hour naps which made the drive easier.
Walking around Copenhagen. As long as I'm not carrying anything on my back I can manage walking ok.
road run 16:24  2.21 km (7:25 / km) +14m 7:12 / km
Orienteering 1:04:09  9.95 km (6:27 / km) +110m 6:07 / km
Back was still tight though I think getting better. Or I'm just getting used to it. Hard to tell. Not pleased with my race, unfortunately. There were some good parts, like controls 10 - 15, but way too many mistakes. Big mistakes on 2 and 7. I was super annoyed at 7, as it was my second big mistake of the race. I therefore blew 8 in my frustration and took a bad route to 9. But then I calmed down and had the best section of my race. I think I missed 18 due to carelessness and just a feeling of wanting to be done. And my route to 16 was horrible, again I just didn't have enough energy or willpower to put enough thought into a route.
I wasn't that far behind the lead and only 2 minutes from 3rd place, which I could easily find out there. As always, it goes to show that 1) you should never give up! (I didn't! I just got a bit too angry with myself) and 2) If I'm having trouble then other people probably are too.
