Orienteering race 1:18:12 [4] *** 7.85 km (9:58 / km) +385m 8:00 / km

BAOC local event @ Joe Grant. Watch died so no GPS. Hammy was doing well this week then for whatever reason it started bugging me on Thursday. Not painful, just that vague sense of something not being quite right, but nonetheless I was pessimistic about running today. Felt okay this AM though, so I decided to at least start and see how it went. This may have been inadvisable, but it turned out well and I was able to make it through, it seems without causing further damage.

My fitness was terrible and navigation not much better, but of course these things are irrelevant when every moment your brain is half-worried about breaking yourself rather than focused on racing. Enjoyable course, though very steep at times, and nice to chat with some of the BAOC folks like Dennis, Rex, Francois and Marie-Josee.

Hamstring continues to improve; it is nearly back to normal (I hope). Have been doing lots of stretching and rolling as well as some light running and harder sprinting in the course of refereeing and haven't had any issues. Will give it a few more days because I have neither the time nor the inclination to be injured at this particular juncture with lots of big events coming up. Heading to the Bay Area this weekend and am hoping to run in the BAOC event on Sunday.
