Orienteering race 1:15:00 [4]

Long race on the "green" course/ shorter red as the longer red had run out of maps. Fairly average effort on my part, kept on picking terrible lines and havign to relocated off the vegetation. Cool course though :)

Will put up splits when i can find them! The time is an estimate b/c the watch failed and then the computer failed haha

mmm american pancakes for breakfast, and then bison burger for lunch/dinner. il have to keep on running heaps, if the food keeps on being this good!

Orienteering 37:14 [4] 3.4 km (10:57 / km)
shoes: Inov-8 X-Talons

Sprint One: Long

It was a forest/park sprint- didnt really feel like I was navigating fast enough to sprint properly, and the lack of proper speed work training recently could definitely be felt.
Control 15- took a ridiculous route straight through a tree that had fallen down. not intelligent. and fairly painful.

Orienteering 24:00 [3]

Short Course- Sprint number 2. Dropped my ecard on leg 4 and had to spend about 2mins trying to find it on the pile of leaves i was running through. not so good route choices at all, I got really cold at the beginning and never really felt like i was running properly.

i was wearing some new tights I had bought with me and they just kept falling down the whole time!! ahhhh so ridiculously annoying for something so small

Orienteering 27:00 [3]

Final sprint- much better than the rest!! I finally felt like i was running again and I caught up to the 3 people ahead of me in the Chasing start so that felt good.

Orienteering 55:00 [3]

Nite- O on Mt Thom (Mt. Tom?)- not sure what it is actually called

Very cold, i was wearing too many layers to begin with so had to strip down a bit during the race. cut off early as was tired. gave myself a fright by running into a tree.

Awesome day of orienteering :)

7 PM

Orienteering 40:00 [4] 6.2 km (6:27 / km)

Sprint intervals around the Yale campus with Boris and Becky :) really pretty campus at night, first time ive properly walked through it! not so pretty route choice... il blame the blindingness of the head torch. funny how many people looked so concerned/ confused as we ran around with head lamps.

forgot my watch so couldn't take any proper timings, but think it was about 40mins.

Running long 1:53:00 [3] 18.35 km (6:09 / km)

Long run with Boris and Marie round West Rock in the dark with headlamps :) definitely one of the longer runs I've done in a while, but felt ok, just a bit slow compared to the others. It was fairly flat too, through the trails there and past the lake. had absolutely no idea where i was most of the time- just had to follow the lights in front of me :) saw deer- that was cool.
Have decided my aim is to see an owl before i leave

Feet went completly numb about 5mins in, dont think i realised how cold I was untill i got home and collapsed into the shower and everything froze up. am now in pain.

7 AM

Running 25:00 [3]

Pretty pathetic attempt at a morning run, but hey at least its something. i slept in

work is good here though- doesnt start till 9am which gives you heaps of time in the morning to go do stuff. my house is about 10mins by bus to work (when the bus actually comes) so yay morning training!

Gym 1:00:00 [2]

A Yoga class at my new gym. Very funny moment when I met Marie (another orienteer) in the changing room- she recognised me from Neil's photos at the weekend. oh my distinctive accent- its a novelty. haha it was great! and yoga was painfully difficult having not done it for ages, and the class was quite different to others i have gone to. but all round great! its a nice lil gym

in other news I have discovered public transport to my neighbourhood stops at 7pm. thats it. im finding a new place- I want a life (/ be able to go the gym in the evenings which is pretty much the same thing!)
