It was a perfect day to explore the Dundas Valley - autumn colours, cool weather and good friends. Because of my injured ankle, I planned to hike most or all of the time, which made it hard to plan a route on a course where controls were so spread out. I'd like to say my navigation was spot on, given my slow pace, but I think I got distracted at times because it took me so long to get anywhere.
After 90 minutes of brisk hiking, my braced ankle didn't feel any worse so I decided to try some easy running on smooth trail sections. After only a few minutes of that, I started a long bushwhack so I probably only got to run 10-15 minutes. We'll see how things feel tomorrow morning; it's too soon to know.
I decided to visit a double black diamond control near the south end of the map, knowing I would arrive late at the finish and lose a big chunk of my points. Since I wasn't in the mix competitively, I figured it would be more fun to visit the control.
Lunch at Grupetto afterward!
