Curling 2:00:00 [1]

Playoff curling game, round two. A good battle. I've been sore most of the week from this game, very slow ice and sweeping like crazy.

Running 44:56 [4] 4.0 mi (11:14 / mi) +103m 10:24 / mi
ahr:165 max:180

Fun red course. Thanks Pete!

1-Started fast run to one, wanted to push the pace today, as we had only 5.4k. A bit tough to make out the mapped terrain (trees and roads didn't appear much like on the map) but found the control without too much fumbling and grabbed fastest split.

2-Across the road and back up the otherside, then tried to use a bearing to head to the control, but veg dictated that I just follow the ridgeline over to the cliff. Went to the edge of the cliff but no control, shortly thereafter saw it 20 feet below me. Fun terrain.

3-Fast run on a bearing to the control, nearly ran by it, but one I was in the circle I was able to see it.

4-worked my way east a bit to the trail - curious to see what others did, anybody go totally direct?

5 - Aweful control. I DID look at both going east around the lake as well and going high right, but choose to go direct. This was the only control I lost time on, and it was 90 seconds! Yikes. The terrain was thick, hilly, and to make matters worse, I cut down into the ravine WAY to early. Big bummer.

6 - Tough going back down the rest of the ravine, then no problems.

7 - Rast east on trail to control, anybody go direct?

8 - Straight to the east to the river trail, then hugged the shoreline, seemed fast.

9 - Heartrate killer up the steep slope. Very fun and Curtis like.

10- Stayed on roads as much as possible.

11- Nabbed fastest split here, and up the big hill? I must have had a great route?

12- Felt fast to this control, but Biz got this one by 5 seconds.

13 - Distracted a bit by a neighboring courses control, but still had a good split.

14- Whoa, gear junkie SMOKED this one, lost 30 seconds to him, and I thought I was moving pretty well. I think going more direct would have helped, I went east to the trail fairly early and trail running was not very much faster.

Great fun.

Cycling 1:26:00 [3] 23.6 mi (16.5 mph)

A ride up and around the lakes and back home, with a stop at the Burke's house to say hi. 47 degrees, which is the warmest day of the spring thus far, but still made for a fairly chilly ride. Nice and sunny though, and some of the roads had gotten swept today, so riding season is drawing closer.
