Orienteering 21:01 [3] 3.24 km (6:29 / km) +1m 6:29 / km

Disaster of a race at Venla. I really have to get out orienteering more, I think. Was cheerful and in good spirits on my way to one, planned a route, attacked in, but didn't really know where I was attacking from, and then couldn't match anything. Found a control, not mine. Couldn't figure out where it could be. Decided best thing to do would be to run back to the trail and do it right. Did that, found the intersection, attacked in again. Found a control, super excited, only to realize it was the same control I found before! Luckily I found Cristina there lost too. We tried to relocate, ran off, and found a big boulder with a control. Cristina relocated us, and we ran off to our controls. Mine was just past hers, so I ran right by hers... and then was lost again. A bit of wandering and then finally found it. After visiting all three other first controls.

A few more bad moments (thinking I was at a different water stop and cutting off the trail and having nothing make sense, bad compass work a few times). I saw Cristina again around 7 which was fun, and then I finally got my act together on the way to 8 and ran well after that. Though not too much of the course left at that point!

It was a good family weekend, as Mom and Dad came too, as well as Sofie and Ross. Took some coordinating, but it all worked out well and Sofie had a good time (though was maybe a bit sleep deprived at times). I feel like I wasn't a great mom, a distant wife (who didn't plan anything for father's day), a bad orienteer, an unsupportive teammate.... but I'm still glad I went. I will just continue to work on that balance in the future.

Oh, and I looked at my watch at 1 to see how long that took me and accidentally stopped it. Realized it just at the end and restarted it.

Orienteering in Lunsen. A bit of trouble in the beginning, but then it got better as I went along.

road&trail run 30:52 intensity: (18 @0) + (15:52 @1) + (14:42 @2) 4.99 km (6:11 / km) +37m 5:58 / km
ahr:128 max:151

Dad and I ran to the clubhouse to meet everyone and then ran with them to the start of intervals. A long warm up!

trail run 29:01 intensity: (1:34 @0) + (4:21 @1) + (8:37 @2) + (14:29 @3) 5.5 km (5:17 / km) +12m 5:13 / km
ahr:154 max:173

Intervals tonight were 6 x 3 minutes with 2 minutes rest around the horse riding track. I didn't want to push as hard as I did 3 weeks ago (when I last did intervals, yikes!), because then I still couldn't really run on Saturday. This Saturday I want to be able to enjoy Venla! (Third team, third leg).

Quads getting tired on the last 2, but really enjoyed the intervals (enjoyment level a bit higher when I'm not up above 180 in HR!).

road&trail run 20:03 intensity: (19:55 @1) + (8 @2) 2.67 km (7:30 / km) +7m 7:24 / km
ahr:122 max:131

So many mosquitos when you stop, but don't notice them as long as you're moving. So Dad and I headed back home quickly after the last interval.

road run 37:05 [2] 5.9 km (6:17 / km) +44m 6:04 / km

Sofie wouldn't go down for an evening nap, but it was too far until bedtime to survive, so Dad, Sofie and I went on a run to put her to sleep for a short nap. It worked. Stopped at the grocery store on the way home to get groceries and wake her up.
