Running warm up/down 10:00 [1]

Orienteering race (long) 2:10:00 [3] **** 9.1 km (14:17 / km) +300m 12:16 / km

COC long. Numerous mistakes throughout and had little flow. Tough running and visibility resulted in losing map contact quickly. Decided to call it a day after 13 since I had enough. Some good long legs were I attacked to control well, but would follow that up with bad legs.

Running 15:00 [3]

From the trail by #13 back to the finish.

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1]

Orienteering race (middle) 1:10:37 [3] **** 3.7 km (19:05 / km) +125m 16:20 / km
ahr:167 max:189

COC Middle. Tough race from start to finish. Really needed to go slow and stay in contact with map which was tough to do. Made some medium sized errors that added up quickly. Likely 20:00 in errors. An experience to say the least. Was 24th overall out of 39. 12 out of 21 CDN. The field struggled today as well...not just me!

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1]

Orienteering race (sprint) 22:40 [4] *** 2.7 km (8:24 / km) +85m 7:15 / km
ahr:179 max:191

COC sprint. Happy with my race overall. My fitness/strength didn't allow me to get up with the big boys. Small bobbles on a couple controls but nothing big. Maybe 2:00 in errors. Reading the map on the run going fast is tough for me. Did better in the forest controls as opposed to the chalet area. A great course and lots of fun. Good to see 4 Manitobans in the top 10 for Canadians.

Orienteering (model event) 30:00 [1]

Model event at Fundy. Preparing for what tomorrow will be like. Trying to see how the area is mapped, and imagine some possible legs. Went slow and tried to spike each control but didn't. Some placements were suspect. Some areas are quite nice and runnable...some spots are crazy thick and tough to see through and get around.

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1]

Orienteering race (sprint) 14:29 [3] 2.3 km (6:18 / km)

Hopewell rocks sprint. On the tidal floor, in and around the tea-pot formations. Lots of controls close together so I had to make sure I didn't overrun or mispunch. Seemed to get at each control quickly and overran a couple. Footing was tough so it was hard to go real fast. Never O'd in anything close to this before....very cool...very fun. Likely close to 1:00 in errors...maybe slightly more.

3 hour kayak along the beautiful Bay of Fundy shoreline. Total was around 9K. Shoulders were a little tired/sore towards the end. AWESOME views....AWESOME time.
