Running Smooth 10:00 [2]

Warm-up for the race.

Orienteering Forest race (middle) 37:30 [3] 5.8 km (6:28 / km)

Didn't want to put my body through the stress of a 13,5 km course, as I just seem to have defeated this two week cold, so I decided to run green today at level 3 pace again. Had a very clean run, even better than the middle. Very enjoyable terrain again, but a little bit steeper and thicker. I think my time was somewhere between 37 and 38, but no results posted before I left.

Running Smooth 10:00 [2]

Warm-up before the middle.

Orienteering Forest race (middle) 35:26 [3] 5.67 km (6:15 / km)

Last evening after the sprint I felt terrible, throat was more sore again and I felt like I had a fever. Didn't think I would run the middle at all at this point. But I went to bed early and slept in late, and I felt better in the morning and decided to go.

Decided to try to run at level 3 cruising speed and be accurate. Lost some time at control 1 and 2, because of a bizarre first control on a power pole 100 metres from the start. I thought it was the start triangle, but it was actually the first control and you had to punch it. I have never seen that before... After that I settled in and enjoyed the excellent terrain and just had fun and an almost clean run.

Felt almost ok after the race. Maybe I have finally managed to shake this virus?

Running Smooth 10:00 [2]

Warm-up before the sprint.

Orienteering City/Park race (sprint) 15:01 [4] 2.62 km (5:44 / km)

The sprint at UMSL campus. Didn't feel good before the race. Still sore throat and very tired. But once the race started it was hard to hold back. Ran at level 4, even though I probably should not have, but I was never running flat out, as I would if I had been healthy. I think I could have been between 30 and 60 seconds faster if the race was 2 weeks ago before I caught this virus. Lots of fun! I love these kind of sprints. Lost maybe 10 seconds on the short leg between 4 and 5 and possibly didn't take the best route on two legs, but I think the difference would have been marginal.

I still have a sore throat and don't seem to be able to shake this virus easily. I did the training yesterday to see how my body would react to it. I felt reasonably comfortable at level 3 intensity, but after the run I felt it in my "pipes". I don't feel worse this morning, but not much better either.

If I don't improve alot the next day, I will run the sprint in St Louis at level 3 intensity and probably jog the middle distance on Saturday, but skip the long on Sunday. That should be a safe approach, I hope?
