SMOC - Heritage Park

Green course (which was pretty white with the fresh inch of snow).
Quite a diverse park (my first time there). There were several opportunities to mis punch (for me, anyways), but I managed to remember my first lesson in Orienteering to ALWAYS double check the control number :) Flushed out a pair of deer on the way to #2. I made it through the mess of trails between #9 and #10, with a bit of luck. Opted for the dry route to #12 around by the north, then got mild soakers while getting out of #12. As I said to the fellow following me, "this is neither the easy way nor the dry way to get out of here". Then I jumped in the freezing water up to my knees on the way to #14. "Inside NW corner" for #19 had me scratching my head, then I found it by the silo. I will have to brush up on my urban orienteering (even though this was a barn......)

It is always good to do a course at a new venue! Thanks!

Hockey 40:00 [3]

Short handed again.

Saturday Dec 9 #

Spin class 55:00 [3]

Fast cadence

Biking 1:15:00 [3]

The snow (1/4"!) finally made its way to the deepest part of the banana belt by late afternoon. The wind had died down by the time I got the last tray of cookies out of the oven and the car cleaned, so I set out on a very pleasant ride. Of course, the snow makes everything brighter and magical. Once I got on the Greenway, I turned my lights off. Since the Greenway is freshly graded and packed, it is very smooth and frozen, so even that tiny bit of snow made it look like a very long white carpet runner stretched out before me.
I rode to the Arner and back, enjoying the extreme peace and quiet. A few cottontails and one white tail startled me as they crossed right in front of me (especially the white tail!) I didn't feel a need to put my front light on until I was nearly back in town.
Then I pedalled down to check out the Festival of Lights which always looks better with snow.
Almost as good as doing that route on skis!

Friday Dec 8 #

Biking (Rail trail/pavé) 25:00 [3] 6.0 km (14.4 kph)

Rode home after dropping car off at garage. -15 C windchill is serious business. Should have worn my downhill ski helmet.

Biking (rail trail, pavement) 25:00 [3] 6.5 km (15.6 kph)

And back to pick up the Outback with a fresh Safety certificate.Tail wind this time, so my face didn't freeze.
