Doctor informed me that its probably a stress fracture, so I have to be more conscientious about how I train. I'll rest and then slowly ramp up my training, avoid pavement, and try to use more cushioned shoes.

Foot's acting up. Couldn't warm up. Same injury as @ Run the Wild. Going to have to go see someone this time.

Forest Orienteering (Jericho beach) 15:35 [5] 3.5 km (4:27 / km)

Had a mediocre race. Met my goals, planning ahead when I can, and always having a plan. Unfortunately those did not encompass having a back up plan, and so I ended up blowing one control by roughly 15-20sec due to that. Otherwise, it was like a course 1/2 relative to technical intensity, so it was more favorable towards fast runners.

Forest Orienteering 15:02 [5] 3.79 km (3:58 / km)

Great race for me, considering how out of shape I was. Most technical race of the weekend, I would say. Made 3ish small hitches, one where I forgot about an easy control, and had to run back like 3 meters to get it. Next I didn't see a route choice down a small ally which would have bought me a ton of time, due to the course being drawn slightly sloppily. Finally at the end I was neck to neck with a few people, and I knew that I didn't have the kick to beat them so I took a bad route choice to confirm that it wasn't faster. Had I not done that, I might have beaten Adam.

Otherwise I was really happy with my technical capacity of dealing with other people around me and staying on track despite distractions. At the beginning I made the most time by running to my first control correctly.

Running (Warm up) 45:00 [3] 5.0 km (9:00 / km)

Classic warm up. Doesn't change so Im gonna wrap them all up for today together.

Forest Orienteering (training) 25:00 [2] 3.0 km (8:20 / km)

Jogged over with Dames to the morning training. After looking at the maps, and seeing there was no control description then I determined that it was probably pointless, for I could make a better one by myself at home.

Forest Orienteering (relay) 22:12 [3] 4.02 km (5:31 / km)

Did the two loops for the 2 person relay. Shouldn't have done this, my foot started hurting afterwards.

Forest Orienteering 14:00 [4] 2.5 km (5:36 / km)

Mental mess. Tried going too fast, and wasn't zoned into the map, so I started planning out the second leg after I saw the first, and in doing that I forgot to punch the first control, and continued on running the second leg.
After that, I was really shaken up and couldn't pull it back together for the rest of the race.

Running (warm up) 20:00 [2] 1.5 km (13:20 / km)

Strides, jogging, buttkicks, legswings, highknees, and a little bit of stretching.

Climbing 1:00:00 [3]

Warm up did a lap. Feeling meh * . Then did some bouldering, climbed like 2 problems.

Then on ropes gave yellow 5.12a 2 shots, got it on my second! Then did a 5 sec hover on each hold up red 5.11c (super pumpy) had a short rope so didn't clip anchor or last clip.

Tried the red boulder, was sooo close!! I stuck the dyno, and just slipped off the last slopy hold.
