Running warm up/down 8:00 [3]

I only think it was an 8 minute warm-up. I also forgot to bring a map, which might have made a difference because I really struggled to get into the terrain.

Running warm up/down 2:00 [3]

A few strides before my start.

Oh god. According to the AttackPoint thing not a single person didn't have mistakes. It says I made something over twelve minutes of them, and I think that's about right. It was extremely rocky, low-visibility for much of it, and very steep for much of it as well. The last few kilometers were much less steep, so most of the climb occurred in the first 2/3 or 3/4 of the race. I'm not happy with how I did, but apparently I was 10th overall and 6th U.S..

Up with a stride.

Middle at Moreau State Park. Fortunately I've been here a few times before, so I was familiar with the difficulty of the terrain. I went fast, but only as fast as I could and keep in contact with the map. I had a few bobbles and lost about a minute on number seven. I think I could definitely have saved at least two minutes on the course with a slightly cleaner run. Also, placed 6th overall, 4th U.S., just out of the medals.

Down. Literally down the giant mountain they made us walk up to get to the start.

Orienteering 15:41 [3] *** 2.82 km (5:33 / km)

Team Trials. I came fourth overall, second U.S. runner, but because Ross chose not to be eligible, I ended up placing first among the elite men for the U.S.... Sweet. Let's make the WOC team!

Up with a map.

Running 37:15 [3]

Ran to Winooski high school and back because Melanie was supposed to have a marching band thing there. It got cancelled, but it was a fun run.

Running 28:50 [3]

Same run... I guess I wanted to go fast...

Running 32:40 [3]

Same run. Arch hurt a little at first and right leg was just generally angry.
