Event: Sage Stomp
11 AM

Orienteering 32:31 [3] 3.2 km (10:10 / km)

Distance from map, no GPS all weekend.

Totally distracted by timing snaffus (is that a word and if so how do you spell it?) and dehydrated today.

First 6 controls were good, but after that was just running too fast in the technical contour stuff. Gotta learn to slow down when I have to.
3 PM

Orienteering 47:33 [3] 4.2 km (11:19 / km)

Middle at Sage Stomp.

Very, very bad race. Didn't have lunch until 2:00 because of timing problems, rather dehydrated and hot.

Running was just really, really slow. Walked a lot. Took the options with the least climb. Not used to the heat. Gotta do more interval training.

Learned not to let yourself get distracted by other stuff and to focus on the race at hand.

Easy paddle across the lake to check out the mudslide that took out a couple houses. Pretty impressive.

Mapping 5:26:54 intensity: (4:00:00 @0) + (1:26:54 @1) 14.4 km (22:42 / km) +301m 20:33 / km

Mapping in Revelstoke at Mount MacPherson. Gonna be out here for the next week of so (except for Sage Stomp...), but event next weekend which I only started the map for today... not exactly great planning, but so it goes.

Absolutely love this terrain! It simply does not get better than this, open forest, rock features (so many cliffs!), water, cool contour stuff, a bit of thicker vegetation in places to spice things up, and a trail network of varying density which is great for all course difficulties. So much fun.

Anyways, if you are around that weekend (the event is Sunday), it is totally worth coming out.

Orienteering 40:00 [1]

Setting out and picking up flags for the POLE class for their orienteering classes. Some of them really got it and enjoyed it. One kid who moved here from Victoria has actually done it with the cadet program out there. Seen an SI and everything.

9 AM

Hiking 2:42:22 intensity: (2:02:22 @0) + (40:00 @1) 6.12 km (26:32 / km) +202m 22:47 / km

Walking through the woods on a line following the beginner trail route up in larch hills. Looks like we should be able to make the trail work.
5 PM

Running 25:00 [3]

Wild Soles running race in Park Hill. Wet and pouring rain, but lots of fun. Alexander was going to beat me, but about 1km in he took a wrong turn and did an extra 3-4 minutes. So, I crossed the line first, but didn't really deserve it. Weak field tonight too. No Thomas, James or Seth.

Didn't get out to do anything today. Timed the U15 of the salty dog and then worked on the first bit of file clean up for the big one too. Glad I wasn't out in the hail.
