orienteering race 42:32 [5] *** 4.0 km (10:38 / km) +160m 8:52 / km

Still, not my race. Almost spiked control 1... almost. I don't even know what i was thinking, but i turned around before i got to the control and spent bout 5min running around trying to figure out where i was... bummer. 3 didn't work out so well either, and then 8 was close to a disaster, but thank goodness for stone walls. i found that i just couldn't run in a straight line, so i'm blaming my compass. :P got through the rest of the course without any other problems although i did play it a little safer even though i didn't really have to.

orienteering race 24:52 [5] *** 3.1 km (8:01 / km) +58m 7:20 / km

Not a great race, but still tons of fun!!! though i did lose the bet that andrew couldn't beat me... shucks!
super duper fast and it was fatal if you didn't thumb along or even worse, lost contact with the map. Lost a total of 2min on 9 and 10 but i'm so proud of myself; i had no idea where i ended up going to 10, and so just like we practiced on wednesday, i stopped, figured out where i had gone, figured out where i was, and then went and got the control!! yay!!! couldn't saved some more time if i had bothered to read all of the walls and such.

1500m 10:30


running warm up/down 20:00 [1]

warm ups for both of my races.

running race 5:49 [5] 1.5 km (3:53 / km)

a pretty good race. legs felt tired but i didn't kill myself at all. gotta work on the water pits and not doing a two foot landing. should be intense next week!!!!

running race 5:17 [5] 1.5 km (3:31 / km)

felt like an amazing race, but wasn't even as fast as last week. i was feeling good on the last lap, but i couldn't keep up with the 3 lead girls who were just booking it and got in under 5min!!! holy macaroni!!!

cycling 46:00 [2]

biking here and there in the rain... woohoo!

orienteering 1:30:00 [3]

relocation training up at pink lake. those woods still trick me every single time!!! had to lead the two other people to some point in the woods, and then they had to figure out where they were on the map. lots of fun for sure!!!

ultimate 45:00 [2]

4 games, won one!!! yay!!!! probably played for longer, but i wasn't running too hard.
