orienteering race 17:46 [5] *** 2.2 km (8:05 / km)
11c weight:164lbs shoes: Icebug 2012

Sprint 3 at Sharon Woods set by Cedarcreek. A fun sprint. Interesting to hear how much discussion there was about the need for map updates. I think perhaps we in OCIN have become too used to near perfect maps. Despite the few overgrown paths, changes to shapes of open areas, and a couple changed shelters and playgrounds, the map was quite adequate for the event.

road running 47:00 [3] 4.5 mi (10:27 / mi)

Dropped off van at the auto shop then took an easy run home. Finally found the small nail that was causing an intermittent slow leak in one tire. ... Only when that side of the tire happened to be directly down. Oil change, high beam headlight, and airbag sensor.

Fairly constant pace with miles of 10:29, 10:33, 10:28, 10:20.

bicycling - road 14:30 [3] 3.9 mi (3:43 / mi)

Home to auto repair shop to pick up van. Visited the self serve car wash on the way home and washed off quite a few kilos of Manitoba mud and sand.

orienteering race 2:08:00 [4]

Long course at Westeen Canadian O Champs on Hog's Back map. What a contrast to yesterday. Very sloppy race with loops, spirals, and random walks (ha ha) at almost every control.

In spite of that, good enough to pull off a second place finish but I was very dis-satisfied at how often I lost contact and how badly I blew bearings and interpretation of contours and vegetation. Granted, the pouring rain did not help matters, and definitely interfered with my vision (wet glasses), but that is no excuse for such a terribly sloppy race.
