Orienteering race (Rogaine) 10:00:00 [1]
shoes: Montrail Hardrock

Day 2 of then NARC. 3Pin and I had a really good start to the night, hitting some very difficult controls well in the dark.
Unfortunately the wheels fell off the bus when we tried to find a "Vegetation Boundary" in the dark, and came at it from 2 totally different bearings. Wasted a couple of hours with no luck.
We then had a 5 min nap and a road hike 'til the sun came up, (Had planned a run) but were still navigating like zombies, and wasted a couple of hours and a huge climb on another missed control. Very frustrating. Jamie was finally able to take a tow so we ran 5km of road to the next section and burned off the frustration.
After that things worked better, and we picked up a fair bit of what was left in our plan.
Ended up with 1470 points, 7th Masters.
Lots of Ontario teams present!

Orienteering race (Rogaine) 13:00:00 [2]
shoes: Montrail Hardrock

N. American Rogaine Champs, Allegany Park. Hilly!
I did this with 3Pin. We set a course based on a fair bit of running, inlcuding a long road run at night. Started out OK, but got well turned around when we ran into Mick's team and lost focus briefly. After that we did our first road run, but 3Pin blew out his ITB. It would take a gun to make him quit, so we just walked along slowly after that.
We decided that if we can't go fast we'd better not make more errors, so we did a lot of pace counting and precison bearings, and thing went pretty well this day, if slower than we'd planned.

Orienteering 53:00 [2]
shoes: Ecco Receptor

Tapering for the Rogaine.

An easy jog of the Palgrave training course put up by Bash.
I know the trails so-o-o well here that I tried to run point-to-point as much as possible, (Some line-o?) even recreating a swampy bushwhack that Bash did in ESAR out of curiosity.
Bit on the buggy side, but a nice course.

Cycling (MTB) 2:40:00 [2]

Nice bike to and around Albion and back with Bash (For the first bit) and The Gazelle. The trails were in great shape, and we rode it all. The Sugar Shack Shuffle's pretty technical.

Sadly, the only part that was soggy was the new bit of trail we sweated buckets to build. Digging down to the clay may not be the answer, or maybe it needs to dry out further and frim up with use.

Running (commute) 30:00 [1]

Easy jog/hike home with the T-dog by headlamp.
