5 PM

Strength & Mobility 30:00 intensity: (24:00 @1) + (6:00 @3)

1 km of rowing as a warm-up. I'd set a goal of 8 mins/km but it turns out rowing is faster than I thought. My new goal is 5 mins/km.

Followed by foothab, which I haven't done for a while.

7 PM


Sadly, it looks like World's Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge will not have a Season 2. Nearly everyone I know in the sport of adventure racing had applied (not me) so there will be a lot of disappointment. I was looking forward to watching it.

If anyone else out there has an Ambit, I assume you've been getting pop-up warnings from Movescount telling you to switch to the Suunto app by the end of October. I dedicated a few hours to doing this, testing it, phoning Suunto Support and backing out my changes. Details here. The short story: Don't do it.

Sadly, that was today's workout.

Sunday Oct 18 #


Too much rain and wind today, and too much pain in ‘Bent’s ankle. Instead of mountain biking in Kolapore, we temporarily hung art on walls that will be repaired and painted later this fall. ‘Bent had been champing at the bit to do this but I thought it was a waste of time since it will all have to come down again soon. Turns out he was right; the place feels much homier this way. Inspired by our indoor work, we went out in the rain to clean vents, remove a stump, pull weeds and make a fire pit sitting area for safe winter socializing.

Trekking (Trail) 1:41:36 [1] 7.18 km (14:08 / km) +229m 12:12 / km

'Bent and I met Dee for a hike north from Grey Road 19, starting on the Bruce Trail and exploring from there. We went up to 12th Sideroad and into Scenic Caves.

Poor 'Bent wrenched his ankle so badly that the pain made him feel nauseated. I've twisted my ankle regularly since I started orienteering and adventure racing but 'Bent still had his original tendons and ligaments so this was really sad. It's too soon to know how bad it's going to be. :(

We turned around early and returned to our cars through Castle Glen. We checked out the highly recommended trail along the creek that comes out of Lake of the Clouds. It's pretty nice! A friendly local resident directed us back to the Bruce Trail by following a trail behind his house.

5 PM

Trekking (Trail) 55:06 [3] 3.94 km (13:58 / km) +74m 12:46 / km

'Bent and I went out to see if we could find Melanie and April Boultbee, who were running an 80 km route on the Bruce Trail in the Beaver Valley and Kolapore areas. We hiked west from Grey Rd. 2 into Kolapore but it turns out they were already on the next block of land. Nice adventure.

My injured right heel didn't feel too bad after 30 minutes on the treadmill this week, which was my first run in a month. It is pretty sore tonight after two hikes though. It seems that uneven ground is my main problem - not running. If I'm going to have to stick to walking/running on roads, it would be best to shoot me now.

6 PM

Running (Treadmill) 30:00 [3] 3.95 km (7:36 / km)

First time running in a month - stayed inside on a treadmill to go easy on my injured foot. The foot has felt almost normal lately so I'll be interested to see how I feel tomorrow. There was some pain when I was walking during my cool down but it felt fine while I was running.
