Orienteering race 14:30 [5]

NAOC sprint. 3rd 'North American'.
Definitely not hitting on all cylinders for this one. I could tell from the warm-up that it would hurt. The course and terrain were pretty straight forward so you really have no choice but to hammer straight at the flags. I only made a couple of small mistakes: floated left on #3 and missed a path junction on #13, expecting to see a distinctly larger trail on the left. Started to fall behind Jonas at about #10 which is when he had bmay's back.
All in all, a good finish to a tough weekend. Now home to recuperate for a few days.

I'll assume that PG's calculations are correct, even with excluding Jonas, and congratulate the US team for a good set of races. (Don't build a trophy case for BK. He won't be there long.)

Trail running 15:00 [1]

Went for a short jog up Old Fort Point in Jasper on the way home. Beautiful weather and a nice view.

Orienteering race 32:06 [5]

NAOC Middle. 3rd 'North American', 5th overall.
Ran a controlled race to #8 which is what the technical terrain called for. Caught Nick at #8 and inexplicably continued at a controlled pace despite the course being pretty straight forward. Finished with what felt like lots of energy. Bad pacing and I feel bad about it after seeing how close the results were.

Orienteering 30:00 [2]

Model event for NAOCs. Enjoyed being back in the forests here. I vaguely remember this area from some long runs here over 6 years ago.

Orienteering race 50:00 [3]

Loafed along through the THOMASS race. Nice, easy terrain. I remember skiing here 6 years ago but the trees have been thinned out drastically. Too bad 'cause it was a very pretty area then.

Trail running 30:00 [2]

Arrived too late to pick up my registration package so went for an easy jog to burn off some of my lunch time indiscretions from the Bear Paw bakery in Jasper. Nice to be back in Cranbrook.
