Orienteering (NEOC Meet) 1:30:00 [3]

Well its official my intense week of homework compounded with the trip to Wisconsin and lack of sleep has left be a broken boy. I had an interesting race with unprecedented amounts of error, and an overall lack of enjoyment in the entire experience, a first for me. I think I will take a couple of days off for R and R.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3]

A control picking course at the Notch, I was way too tired to be out running, and as a result, I had to cut the session short. I was a bit confused at points either because of my foggy mind or the map, I am pretty sure it was the mind going.

Running (Warm up w/ Map) 22:00 [3]

Warm up before the tempo run. Whole time in the woods, which are by the way, especailly beautiful with the fall colors in full bloom. I had no idea what i was missing in the coniferous forests of Washington!

Running (Tempo) 25:00 [4]

In the forest for 15 minutes and 10 on the trail systems near UMASS. My legs felt fresh for the first time in a long while, although my left knee doesn't seem to have fully recovered from my crash during the Highlander. It might have been the fall temps that seemed to bring out the ache, but it has been improving over the past week, so I have no concerns about a long term problem. I also read the map a bit while I was running hard on the trails, trying to get me used to reading the map at a higher pace.

Running 5:00 [2]

Running to the fields for sprints after my tempo run. Ahhh its nice to not have tests on your mind :).

Speed Work 1:40 [5]

5x100m sprints at dusk, with route choice exercises after each sprint. This is where I started to feel my knee.

Running (Cool Down) 20:00 [2]

Jogging around campus, thinking about opportunities for improving my orienteering/ mental calmness that is required to run a perfect technical race. Long control picking tomorrow, should be interesting.

Three tests today, WHOA, too much studying to be done... especially with the weekend in Wisconsin.

Missed my flight to Hartford because of plane troubles in Minnesota and had to stay in D.C. overnight. Meant that I had to wake up early and drive to Amherst before classes, and then study all day for my Midterm study party. Too much for training. I perfect excuse to give my legs some rest + save up some motivation to have a great week of training after the tests.
