Orienteering 1:40:00 [1]

Inara's first Blue course! I carried her around the Blue course at the QOC event at Pohick Bay. It was a very nice course designed by the Merkas, and I enjoyed it, even at walking speed. Inara was great, even though this is the longest she has ever spent orienteering. I think we were very clean until making a mistake between the last control and the finish, as I got distracted chatting with Dave Pruden and walked right by the finish!

Cross-Training 35:00 [1]

Elliptical after work and before heading to Dulles to pick up family returning from Sweden.

Note

Back in DC after a thoroughly enjoyable trip to Sweden. Commentating Tiomila with gg was a blast. He did a great job jumping in at the last minute to replace the unavailable Nixon, and added a ton of great stuff to our broadcast, from the twitter account, to the in-depth interviews, to his knowledge of the runners. I think we worked well together and were able to present a product that was not merely a copy of what Per Forsberg does, but in English, but something our own and targeted more to our specific international audience.

Things that went well to remember for next time:
- Twitter account (10milaTVen) worked really well, and allowed for nice interaction with the viewers
- Answering viewer questions was a great way to fill dead time
- Interviews seem to have gone over well. I think the spread of countries was good too (we hit five continents!)
- When interviewing, it is good to ask questions that go beyond "How was your run? What are your team goals?"

Things to improve on:
- We should have had a third chair in the booth for interviews
- When GPS tracking is on during an interview, we should turn off the booth camera so viewers can see the full screen
- Need to keep working on my pronunciation of Finnish clubs and runners

Any more feedback from the viewers? I'd love to hear what you guys thought!

Cross-Training 30:00 [1]

Elliptical at the Blair House gym in the evening

PT 15:00 [1]

Leg press and assisted squats. Side/leg pain (let's call it sciatica for these purposes) quite strong on the left side, but not noticeable while exercising, for the most part. Decided I might as well exercise, as the pain isn't going away on its own through resting.
