Stretching 35:00 [1]
(rest day)

R hip is feeling strange. I think I might have tweaked it while climbing on Friday. Planned on going orienteering today, but my alarm didn't go off. Opted for a rest day instead and spent the day unpacking everything (finally done!), stretching, and cuddling with my roommate's cat

Saturday May 5 #

9 AM

Running 1:01:22 [3] 7.23 mi (8:29 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

I felt slow but man it was beautiful out! I was so tired that I missed dinner last night. I think I need to fuel myself a lot better than I have been this past week. It was a pretty hectic week, but things have calmed down a bit, so eating enough and well is back on the top of the agenda!
Almost got ran over today, maybe a quarter mile into my run. I swear the woman gassed it just to cross before me, and if I hadn't been paying attention and stopped about a foot from where she went, it wouldn't have been pretty. She yelled "Excuse me!" as she cut right in front of me. Would have been more upset except it was too nice out and I was in too good of a mood.

T to Fresh Pond

Orienteering race 16:31 [5] 2.0 mi (8:15 / mi)
20c shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Sprint at Fresh Pond. Did some great reading ahead because there was no route choice, and it was for the most part just a running course. Hard to run in the heat.

Running warm up/down 11:17 [2] 1.01 mi (11:10 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Barely a trot. I've never been in Boston in May before, and there are some serious pros and cons.
Pros: The trees actually have leaves or blossoms. So much orienteering happens (I'm convinced that I missed out on the majority of Boston orienteering last year because I wasn't here in May). Everyone is outside enjoying the weather.
Cons: It's hot. Very very hot. This is major.
7 PM

Orienteering 8:51 [2] 0.78 mi (11:21 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Pickup controls 8, 9, and 4

Running 26:11 [3] 2.75 mi (9:31 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

The most pleasant of my many mini runs today. It rained a little bit and had cooled down considerably. Even still, when I got home, I had frozen corn for dinner because I wasn't about to eat hot food when I had perfectly good frozen food.

Wednesday May 2 #

4 PM

Running 30:25 [3] 3.42 mi (8:54 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Miserable. We skipped spring and went straight to summer. Stopped to stretch and drink water several times. Walked up the hill. Didn't get enough food today before running, which definitely played a factor. Tomorrow I'm getting plenty of food before starting off.

Tuesday May 1 #

4 PM

Running 35:36 [3] 3.82 mi (9:19 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 4 - Blue (#2)

Felt lethargic, maybe partly was the sun, maybe partly was the weekend, not sure

Monday Apr 30 #

Note

Moving the rest of my things and starting the unpacking process in the new apartment!
