Soccer (outdoor) 30:00 [3]
(injured) shoes: Soccer Indoor Nike 2013 Mercer

Flew back from Denver. On the way I got a coughing fit and coughed so hard I pulled a back muscle.
Off the plane, swung by home and then to the game. We had a lot of people so I didn't get as much playing time as I would like. It was so very hot (96 degrees) and humid. I huge difference from Wyoming where it was 70's and no humidity.
I played ok but my team didn't play up to our potential. We played a team with only 8 people and we let them tie us 2-2.
My back really started hurting after the game.

Orienteering (Wyoming day 3) 1:01:28 [3] *** 7.3 km (8:25 / km) +270m 7:06 / km
spiked:17/18c slept:7.0 shoes: addidas2016

I found out at the starting line that they had shortened the course from 8.1K 350m climb to 7.3K 270m. I was thankful for the less climb.

Today I was overall tired from 5 days of straight orienteering. The good news is I was getting used to the altitude. I was guarenteed second place based on my first two days. I had to beat one person who beat me all week but didn't run yesterday.
At the start I noticed that the red and blue course was same at the end. I was starting with Eric Bone so figured he would he would do the extra distance and we would meet up for the final controls. Well it almost worked out. Eric ran faster than I so when I finally did see him we was already way ahead of me and there was no way I would catch him.

Overall I was clean at the controls but some of my routes were shaky. I felt tired/slow. I still had to walk more than I felt I should have, especially as open as the terrain was. I also lost much of my spring in hopping through the sage areas. I almost fell out of the start as I tripped on some sage. I used the recommended marsh crossing in all instances.
My only real mistake was after control 16, I was thinking I was at 17 so started heading the wrong direction (to 18). I corrected after a bit but then I was too high and messed up #17 as I thought I was going to the reentrant.
My 6-7 leg I executed fine but changed my mind part way through to added a bunch of extra distance. I was going to go more straight and cross by one of the ponds but then chickened out and went to the recommended crossing.

Orienteering (Wyoming day 2) 1:12:18 [3] *** 8.1 km (8:56 / km) +265m 7:40 / km
ahr:134 max:150 spiked:18/19c slept:7.0 shoes: addidas2016

Nice cooler day (upper 60's). map was more open than previous days. decided to wear my running shoes instead of orienteering shoes. They slipped on the side hill running but were better in the open areas.
Overall had a good but slow run. The only control I messed up on was #9. I was high and went to far by a bit and had to come back. I tried to run but was to tired. I had to walk a lot more than I should have.
I wanted the fastest time to #1 but was tied for 4th fastest of all courses.
10-11: i went east to avoid the climb.
11-12: went through sage to marsh, ran cow path along marsh.
12-13: went north to the marsh hoping for cow path. It was there but was more overgrown so couldn't run hard down it..
