trail running ("Seven Summits") 2:04:45 intensity: (21:48 @0) + (13:03 @1) + (1:23:09 @2) + (6:45 @3) ** 15.85 km (7:52 / km) +307m 7:11 / km
ahr:147 max:164 slept:7.5 shoes: Brooks

Woke up this morning and thought that I should do a longer run if I am hoping to even try and keep up with Althea next weekend... So pulled out an old copy of the Seven Summits, which I have never actually run before. Very old map, printed at 1:20,000 and missing some big features such as power lines and big new trail.
The rain had finally stopped but I did avoid the biggest puddles and lakes.
Usual walk as warm up and cool down. Didn't go to the Winter Club parking lot for the start but did finish there. Having a map in my hand made the time go past faster.It did feel like more than 307m of elevation...
Running time = 110m55s

trail running 43:01 [3] 6.72 km (6:24 / km) +78m 6:03 / km
ahr:135 max:154 slept:8.5

Walk before and after.
Raining. tried to avoid all the worms on the sidewalks and roads. Why do they do this? Gave me something to ponder; "Dissertation upon Drowned Worm". ( I guess they haven't actually drowned yet, but 'drowning' didn't fit - is it only those of a British heritage that would get my blatant copying??) Why don't they just stay in amongst the grass which would be safer than exposed to human feet and robins' beaks? I don't remember this happening in Scotland - maybe the worms there are acclimatised to wet conditions?? What happens in Vancouver?? I disturbed many robins taking advantage of this smorgasboard. Maybe this is a survival of the fittest strategy. But in that case why still so many would be suicides??? Hmmm.

course setting in Fish Creek for tomorrow's Beyond the Basics - Aiming Off. Not too much rain while I was there but everything soaked and the creek is fast so kept courses away from banks. Also made a hand out.

Back to Calgary around midnight but as had a big coffee in Kamloops (cheapest gas in Canada at $1.06.4!) couldn't fall asleep. I think I heard every hour and half hour striking until 5am... When will I learn????
Raining today so won't get too much yard work done.

orienteering competition race (Sage Long) 1:03:41 intensity: (12:37 @0) + (6:58 @1) + (43:20 @2) + (46 @3) *** 6.12 km (10:24 / km) +256m 8:36 / km
ahr:145 max:166 shoes: Ice Bugs

LOTS of hills. Robert caught me (running very well on his bionic knees) and dropped me after the long leg. However, i think we had the better route choice. Had had a sloppy control just prior to that - missed a boulder on a hill. toughest course I have run for a long time.
Won W45. Forgot to turn off Garmin for 6 minutes at the end.
