Nice evening. Went into the old neighborhood and did a bunch of hills. Steady though -- not over working.

2 Me: 4:03.7
3 Matt Knifton: 4:08.1
4 Eric Cornet: back

Luis Prado in the previous B-C race was 4:02.6
Slow times due to a headwind. WU did not suggest I had a lot of energy. However, I gave myself a pep talk to just keep at it, whatever "it" turned out to be. Kept an eye on the starters flag and got off quick. After 15 strokes, I (in lane 6) was even with Pat to my right (in 5) and Matt farther off in (2). At 250m, put in a push, still even. At 500, push again, still even with Pat, seemed like Matt was just a touch behind. At 750 still even with Matt now behind. Began to up the effort and got ready to go hard with the last 15 strokes. However, my legs didn't answer and Pat squirted away. Pretty pleased with the result because I've don't very little race prep and spent too much time on my legs yesterday.
4x with Sebastion, Ed, Me, Luis
We had to beat the TRC boats by 3.8 and we manage 7s. We were in the too small mid/hwt boat and that made for a sloppy race. Nevertheless, we pulled it out. We could go faster though. :-)
2x with Bill Keros
Kind fo a grind. We were in back and got caught in the wake of an inattentive launch driver. Slippin' and slidin' all over. I got a good workout but we were last. Bill had a rough weekend. His technique just doesn't allow him to put much pressure into the oars yet.
Orienteering 1:45:00 
NTOA event at Tyler. Surprisingly wet and cool. Good running. Unfortunately, we're a little late in the season and the vegetation was thick. Some places were good running, some places were slow going, and some places were very scratchy. Enjoyed being out but I was out longer than planned. 89 min for 7k. I was helped by a 12 min error at a root stock control that was really stretching the definition there of.
I love working the contours at Tyler. I ran without a compass, which I find liberating and fun at a place like Tyler.
Had my boat on the car. After running, I took a cold shower, which was the only option, and headed SW to Austin. Took 79 most of the way and it was a nice drive. The road was good, scenery interesting, low traffic, and took about 4 hrs. Arrived at Festival Beach about 4:30 and rigged the boat.

* Slow down a bit with the iron. Not so hot to burn the wax and base but enough so that the base warms up and the wax absorbs. If there is chipping when scrapping that means the wax was just sitting on top. Take my time, down the middle, down the sides, down the middle, etc.
* Keep scrapers sharp. Then I can apply less pressure and have better control. To touch up be light, slow and patient. Mistakes always happen when being impatient.
