4 PM

Cycling 22:30 [4] 6.79 mi (18.1 mph) +107m

Morning commute. Today I ran back the old ride to my place of employment, before my place of employment up and moved like 15 miles further away. I can't find the Post-It with my old mile PRs on it but I'm pretty sure I crushed at least one of them.

Stupid calf is still being stupid. It has ONE job which is to not be injured all the damn time.

Cycling warm up/down 17:40 [2] 2.28 mi (7.7 mph) +10m

5 PM

Cycling 30:36 [4] 7.26 mi (14.2 mph) +201m

Evening commute home. Not as strong as the morning - ~10s slower than most of my PRs.

Running warm up/down 12:12 [2] 1.15 mi (10:36 / mi) +25m 9:56 / mi

So my friend had this pet rabbit and it ran away the other day. Yeah, really sad right? Because now it's just some bunny that I used to know.

Orienteering race 48:20 [4] *** 4.39 mi (11:01 / mi) +230m 9:28 / mi

WIOL championship at Camp River Ranch. I made two poor route choices which cost me some three minutes and without which I would have been victorious. Ended up in third behind Jourdan and, horror! Peteris.

I found the new venue and map to be really nice, while not quite providing enough interesting off-trail detail to be on par with Fire Mountain, Lord Hill, and Lincoln Tree Farm. Lots of trail around/cut straight decisions, which I weighed with a somewhat different calculus due to the fact that a number of trails were windier, sloppier and thus slower than the general norm.
4 PM

Running 59:51 [3] 7.25 mi (8:15 / mi) +200m 7:36 / mi

Right calf very sore and uncomfortable - much more so than it should naturally be. I'm sure this is an echo of the injury.

Some Sprint Camp recap bullet points:

--One great race, three solid ones, one poor one, one garbage.
--My calf held up well throughout the weekend, although I am now apparently paying the price.
--Jourdan and I won the two-person relay. Huzzah! I had a clean first leg and lost some time on my second leg, but not enough to cough up our lead.
--Poor showing by the US men, with five Canadians ahead of the first American. But that was me, so I guess that's sort of good by default. There are not Canadians at Team Trials. Still, funny that many of us are in various states of injury and/or poor conditioning at this particular time.
