Football 1:15:00 [3]

Captain's with Hudson soccer. The atmosphere is so different with the school team than with the club team, I didn't really like it. A lot of people are pretty selfish and it's not nearly as encouraging. Good to get some touches today but can't really say I enjoyed it.

Running 16:23 [3] 3.38 km (4:51 / km) +7m 4:48 / km

First half of the run. Not a very serious run, ran with a decent sized group down to one of the coaches' houses, but he wasn't there. Ran to the pier and onto the beach, messed around for a bit.

Running 13:44 [3] 2.8 km (4:54 / km) +49m 4:31 / km

Back up we go. Took Vine St back up, not steep but consistently uphill for the whole bit, a bit tiring.

Orienteering 45:00 [2]
shoes: Inov-8 OROC 280

Vetting with Max. Alternated leading on controls, he did very well on his, good signs, one control had an unmapped building nearby, very confusing, couldn't find a streamer, but we attacked from three different locations and hit the exact same spot three times, everything lined up but the building, checked out the road the building was on, confirmed the building was unmapped, everything. A little irked about that one. Generally a lot of fun, it's good for me to run with Max, he's an incredibly fast runner. He'll be orienteering very well very soon. We'll be vetting the rest of the map next weekend, it'll be a bit longer.

Whoops left my watch at home and his ran out of battery part-way through so I don't have any information regarding distance, location, or anything else related to that. I'll go back some other time and visit the locations where I thought the streamer was misplaced so we get an exact read of the streamer's location.

Football 32:00 [5]

Frustrating in every possible way. We dominated the game, but no one's shooting. We lost 1-0 because of a free-kick we gave away because of a handball. Feeling really frustrated, feel like I should have taken my chances when I got them. I have an idea on how to fix that , going to try it at practice and next week's game. It'll be difficult though we're facing top of the league next week. Our team needs to start scoring, we are in dire need of shots on goal because right now we're not getting many.

More training, game tomorrow. Hopefully we play better than we trained (unlikely, that's not how practice works).

Running 23:31 [3] 4.72 km (4:59 / km) +49m 4:44 / km
shoes: Adidas Supernova

I was gonna run with Seth, looking forward to a nice run, he cancelled for reasons he did not convey, looked a little less forward to the run. After waiting for an hour and a bit after lunch, got out to running. Easy distance to get my body moving, running during the week will be a bit more difficult because they're already in the groove. Hopefully I can utilize these next two weeks properly so I'm competent in Vancouver.

Football 1:00:00 [3]

Thighs are a little sore, playing was getting a little bit frustrating with several of my teammates not having the right ideas when they have the ball. Played okay, made a few spacial mistakes, but it was overall fun. I didn't get very tired during conditioning so either this conditioning is week or I'm getting a little more fit again. Good signs.

Running 32:37 [3] 6.93 km (4:42 / km) +21m 4:38 / km
shoes: Adidas Supernova

Tomorrow's my soccer day, so hopefully my running muscles get a good rest. I don't want to overdo myself so early back into running. Friday will be another running day, and it looks like I'll have a day of orienteering (vetting) over the weekend. Even better, hopefully I can bring a friend and teach him at the same time.

Running 23:26 [3] 4.78 km (4:54 / km) +56m 4:38 / km

My leg muscles were getting really tired, I'm going to want to get into good running form and strength soon for Vancouver. My ankle injury has passed or was at least subdued by the shoe insoles, so I'm good to go. We'll see how the next few weeks go.

Football (Game) 50:00 [5]

In a little tired but not too bad, didn't get subbed at all. It was a game we should have won but our forwards struggled to finish and some of our midfielders were being slow on the ball. 0-0. Generally a very frustrating match, especially at the end, no sense of urgency.

My nose has been very clogged and it's made it hard to do anything. Today was supposed to be my reintegration into doing stuff but my planned activity was cancelled because of a combination of not being on the schedule (which there was no need for because no one is ever on the schedule ever) and a few people taking make-up finals and needing absolute silence in the entire school. So there's that. At least I've got something tomorrow morning.

The terrible part of the sickness is gone, I can use my body again, but my nose is still stuffed to the moon and back.

Very difficult, struggled a lot. Not sure if I enjoyed but will probably end up doing again.

The snow made it really tough to run, hills were tougher than usual, very limited friction, a lot of people are sick so just two of us today.

Football (Game) 23:00 [5]

A friendly game, very much testing the ropes seeing how the team plays. We won the game 2-0, but it was very scrappy. 25 minute halves.

Core 8:00 [3]

Football (Game) 37:00 [5]

A little more play time, we played pretty sloppily but it got better on the second half. 50 minute long game. Last five minutes were chaotic as we desperately looked for a goal as we were dominating at the end, but it ended 0-0 after three chances go insanely close to scoring.

My heel/ankle/achilles tendon is feeling better, most likely thanks to the shoe supports I'm wearing now. Really helpful, greatly reduced pain.

Update on the injury, an ankle sprain should have been gone a bit ago, and as time has gone on the pain has centralized on the Achilles tendon. We're not really sure what exactly the problem is or if this is something I've irritated from two years ago, but it's getting better and I expect to be able to get back at it soon. We're visiting a podiatrist in a few days, hopefully we'll learn something helpful.
