Strength 29:00 [3]

Abs, legs
2 PM

Running 1:00:00 [3] 8.0 mi (7:30 / mi)

Bridle Trails + Watershed loop. Listened to Big Pax go perfect into the sixth, then shortly after that was broken up I happened upon Jeff Grove and a friend of his, so I slowed the pace and joined with them for 2-3 miles. It turned out the other guy is a former duathlete who once finished 9th at the world championships.

11 AM

Cycling 1:45:00 [3] 25.0 mi (14.3 mph) +233m

Time approx. From I-5 @ Highway 11 to Bellingham via Chuckanut Drive w/dad. Nice ride. Easy pace but nonetheless right quad was hurting by the end for whatever reason - probably something to do with going to bed late and getting up at 530 to watch WOC.

Ouch, my team was badly let down by the Queen's Own - Jones was a scratch, McNulty came back to earth, and it seems like Ingham must have suffered some on-course injury. The lesson, as always: never trust anyone who speaks the wrong (un-American) kind of English.

Looking to make a comeback with France and Estonia in the sprint relay.

Cycling 30:00 [3] 9.0 mi (18.0 mph) +15m

Time/distance nominal

Finished Hugo #19 yesterday - Stand On Zanzibar by John Brunner. Would recommend.
4 PM

Cycling 40:00 [3] 13.0 mi (19.5 mph) +15m

From work to the southern terminus of the Interurban.

Here's my WOC sprint fantasy team:
Kris Jones
Tue Lassen
Henry McNulty
Milos Nykodym

Ursula Kadan
Karolin Ohlsson
Lizzie Ingham
Caroline Gjotterup

Had to draft on my phone in the back of a car, so ended up getting autodrafted the first two rounds while I figured out how to connect. Stoked to get Jones on the men's side, but not pleased with Kadan as my top woman. I think I got good value with Ohlsson, Ingham, and Lassen. McNulty is a bit of a homer pick, because I started with him at the sprint qual last year. I think having the top pick is a big advantage this year, as you've got the prohibitive favorite in Alm plus your pick of Kyburz or Michiels. We'll see what plays out.

(rest day)

It was a great week-plus of orienteering and hanging out with friends, particularly those from out of town like Boris+Alli+fam. Since I never managed to write anything about the events before the US Champs, here's an abbreviated chronological synopsis of the week using Big W's patented Five Words method of description, but without repeating any word:

COC Ultimate-O Middle @ Moses Lake Sand Dunes: Good as I reasonably get.
COC Ultimate-O Goat @ Fishtrap: Where'd Bonesaw go?? ...Bonesawed again.
EWOC Riverside Sprint #1: Bobbly. That knoll's a rock!
EWOC Riverside Sprint #2: Faster, Cleaner, Straighter - O-lympics motto.
EWOC Riverside Classic: Legs/mind fatigued; hot, dehydrated.
EWOC Liberty Lake Score-O: Rest needed. Jogged, walked. Pleasant.
US Champs Sprint: Easy course, still bungled it.
US Champs Long: Redemption. Better lucky than skilled?
US Champs Middle: Finish on the high note!
