Dontgetlost Peak-2-Peak

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!

Mountain Biking (Single Track) 1:38:30 [3] 20.3 km (12.4 kph) +360m

'Bent and I rode in Palgrave East today, which is in great shape. We stopped to chat with Tammy, who was out for a run. We met a few hikers and only 3 other riders on a beautiful afternoon.

We kept up a decent pace, considering that neither of us is really training for anything. As soon as my ankle gets unsprained, I need to put something on the calendar for motivation. I'm interested to see how it feels after tomorrow's easy-paced orienteering.

Bike computer distance and time. (Didn't turn my watch on right away.)

Mountain Biking (Single Track) 48:32 [3] 11.29 km (14.0 kph) +177m

Fun, quick toodle around Palgrave East single track before dinner. Trails are in great shape and I can't believe I ever doubted getting a 29er.

On a less fun note, we found our 2nd black legged tick indoors since Monday. The first was dead, probably killed by the dogs' tick prevention medication. The second tick was very much alive, walking across 'Bent's eReader. Yikes. Palgrave isn't known as a hot spot for Lyme infection but we're also not known as a hot spot for black legged ticks.

slept:6.5 (injured)

Dr. Thumbs-of-Death dug into my foot and lower leg today. As always, it took every ounce of willpower I have to keep the conversation "flowing" to take my mind off the excruciating pain. There was no comparison in mobility between my two feet; the left one was "locked" when he tried to move it from side to side. Apparently, he sees a lot of pain on the lateral side of the knee in people who have feet like my left one. He made some progress today but I'll be back for more torture next week. It's been 22 days since the sprain. I signed up for the Peak-2-Peak Adventure Run on Sunday with the plan to hike with a map. I'll have to wear an ankle brace and be *super* careful but I think I'm ready for that.

Ankle still sore in a few specific places. I'm learning more about anatomy as I try to put names to those places.
