Orienteering race 50:09 [4] **** 3.44 km (14:35 / km) +124m 12:21 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: VJ Falcons 5

COC Middle on One Duck Lake map near Whistler. Excellent map of very detailed terrain. Printed at 1:7500, which was nice. Less annoying vegetation than yesterday's training map but still slow running due to stuff on the ground (like rocks and deadfall). Lots of up and down on the course, some of it fairly steep.

Had an OK run (although there was lots of walking and plenty of stops to read the map). Lost a couple of minutes on #6 with a sub-optimal route choice and sloppy execution (adding about 4 lines of climb). Went brain dead on #11 and lost contact for about 4 min lost. Hit most of the others pretty well. Ended up 8th of 27 in M55. Straightline distance 2.6km with 170m of climb.

Orienteering 29:56 [3] *** 2.41 km (12:26 / km) +67m 10:55 / km
spiked:6/10c shoes: VJ Falcons 5

Training event on Lost Lake map at Whistler (not a "model" event since the mapping is different, but the terrain is relevant). Complex trail network, some steep terrain and thickish vegetation. Didn't push hard but tried to keep a reasonable pace. Sloppy on several controls but relocated quickly. Map was tough to read since they crammed lots of detail on a 1:7500 map. Straightline distance 1.8km. Hot - upper 80s.

Walking 1:00:00 [1] 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Walking around at UBC Botanical Gardens. Spent about 3 hours there and probably covered more than the mileage logged, but we stopped a lot to read tags identifying plants. Lots of rhodendrons, magnolias and maples in their collection (along with many Pacific Northwest big trees). Who knew that there were over 400 different kinds of rhododendron?

Walking 1:00:00 [1] ** 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Wandering around Stanley Park in Vancouver. Pretty nice place for a city park. Bright sunny day with temps in the upper 70s. Had a copy of the Stanley Park sprint map so followed along for the parts when we were on the map.
7 PM

Trail Run 41:03 intensity: (1:15 @1) + (6:38 @2) + (18:10 @3) + (15:00 @4) * 6.59 km (6:14 / km) +106m 5:46 / km
ahr:137 max:152 shoes: NB 1210 "Leadville"

Stanley Park, starting at Third Beach, taking a non-direct route on gravel trails across the peninsula, and then back via the paved trail along the seawall. Gravel trails were mostly through the woods (big trees!) and uphill at the beginning. Very scenic (which is an understatement). Cooled down with a brief wade in the ocean.

Hiking 1:40:30 [2] 5.84 km (17:13 / km) +208m 14:37 / km
shoes: NB 1210 "Leadville"

Hiked up Thunder Knob in North Cascades NP. A well developed trail with any steepish climbs moderated by switchbacks. Decent views of Diablo Lake (formed by a hydroelectric dam on the Skagit River) and lots of steep sided mountains with patches of snow on them. Temps got into the 80s and it was sunny, so hiking was on the warm side.
