Orienteering Race race 1:36:29 [4]

Probably a Top 5 Ottawa Sunday Event.

P7, brand new map of Camp Fortune area, awesome investment by Orienteering Ottawa, some of the best woods and terrain in the Gats.

Event Director Eric Kemp
Course Setter: Andreas Boesen (WOC medalist)
Weather: awesome

Ran with Karl Saidla, who's still usually on the podium at the Gatineau Loppet. Whenever we got onto a trail section, Karl changed gears and I had to push to keep up. Karl also wore his O-pants he bought in Thunder Bay in the 90s while Orienteering with Lappe (they are totally too big on him)

Great course, tried to talk to Karl the whole time, he navigated any of the trail sections. Not the fastest of times, but just behind Pippa Archer who I guess was in town?

This was a top notch event and not at all a "meaningless fun run". Now how can we make it that the top Ottawa runners are running and not helping or elsewhere.

Also cool to see the skiers out.

Running 1:20:00 [3]

Guessing at the time, a really warm run with Fred and Nicky.

There's out there's an island in the Caribbean that has lots of Orienteering including being taught in school. However, sadly, their athletes wouldn't be eligible for NAOC.

Running intervals 30:00 [5]

Oh baby, track workout with Mile2Marathon! At the strangely shaped MAC track whiich people are guessing to be 360m.

4x800 - 90 sec rest
4x400 - 90 sec rest

Some people did 6 of each but thank god my group was mostly racing Army Run so stuck with sets of 4.

Felt shockingly decent, mostly due to employing "realistic pacing" in my early 800s.

Great to see the awesome big group that Dylan has built up in just a few months.

Warm-up and cool down. Warm-up was a bit faster than what I'd like.
