Orienteering race (Brown) 1:12:19 [3] *** 4.0 km (18:05 / km) +190m 14:37 / km

FR = 3.42 miles and 121.7 m climb

Aim was for an hour, but I bled a bunch on the long leg to 6. So close to a perfect race otherwise. Still struggling a bit with the new compass, but, ah, well, there is always next time.

Strong wind came through around 40 minutes in, and then the temperature dropped about 10 degrees. Refreshing, since I had started out in a balmy 65 degrees.

Fell twice - first time slamming on my back when my feet flew out from under me, and the second tweaking my right knee.

Running/Walking (Treadmill) 40:00 [1] 3.03 mi (13:12 / mi)

Started at 3 mph and walked for 2 minutes, adding 3/10 every 2 minutes. Up to 6 mph and the back down, running from 4.2 to 6 and back

Right heel is sore. Still.

Swimming 41:00 [1] 1.14 mi (35:57 / mi)
slept:3.0 weight:189lbs

With the temps at 26 - feels like 13, it seemed like just going to the pool required some HTFUness - but I made it! It helps knowing that the pool is kept at a comfortable temperature, and just the first few seconds feel cold. Swam straight through except for about 2 x 10 seconds to clear my throat.

Slept poorly last night and was late to work. Ugh! I hope swimming will help me sleep tonight. I am working on a bit less caffeine during the day, and sweets are next (less, not all).

Biking 1:00:00 [1] 11.0 mi (5:27 / mi)

Squeezed in one more biking day since conditions were about the same as yesterday, maybe 2 degrees cooler. Wore light vest over 2 LS shirts and buff covering ears. My thighs felt super heavy, likely objecting to me subjecting them to this three days in a row.

P.S. Tootsies were getting chilled by the end.

Biking 1:02:00 [1] 11.5 mi (5:23 / mi) +11m 5:22 / mi

Overcast and 45, feels like 42, less windy than yesterday, but still more wind than I like. It got a bit rawer near the end - it is supposed to rain tonight. Last mostly decent day for at least a week, so I saved the pool and treadmill for other days this week.

Wore two long sleeve shirts today. A little sweaty at the end, but comfortable in general.

My goal is to reach 250 hours of training for the year, which is more than I have done since 2002, when I started logging on AP, except for the boot camp year. So, I saw that I had 243, and I was a little bummed because I felt it would be hard to get 17 more hours in this month. Later on, the difference became clear, and I was excited again.

Biking 55:00 [1] 10.11 mi (5:26 / mi) +28m 5:24 / mi

After a gloomy morning, I went out for a ride in a sunny 53, feels like 49 with the 10-12 mph wind. Long sleeve, long pants, vest, and I was comfy enough.

My right heel is painful, not PF pain, but likely bursitis. Not new pain, but more painful that I need to think about fixing it, or not. :)
