cycling 3:20:00 [2]

Set up a little score-o for the venturers... which meant biking down to vincent massey, biking around the park to put out all the controls... which weren't really controls... it would've been too easy, so i used pieces of duct tape with a letter on it. then i biked around for the whole hr they were o-ing to help them when they needed... and then since duct tape is not biodegradable and i would've felt bad just leaving it there so i went and picked up all the controls and then biked home... holy macaroni!!!

running race 5:47 [5] 1.5 km (3:51 / km)

a new PR!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!! by 2 seconds, i beat my time from EOSSA last year!!!! hooray!!!! and i didn't kill myself on any of the barriers... or fall in the waterpit!!!! took the lead right at the beginning, and then just cruised through the rest of the race cause nobody was threatening me... it was just me 150m ahead of everybody else... alright!!!

running 10:00 [1]

running to the start

orienteering race 36:34 [4] 5.0 km (7:19 / km)

Had a super duper great race!!! a bit tricky with all of the trails, but i just tried to ignore the ones that i didn't need and that worked alright. made a little bit of a mistake one 2, going a bit too far to the north and having to come back to the control. the contour interval of 1.5m was weird... cause the hills on the map looked massive, but then in real life... they weren't really very big at all! saw ian on the way to 9 which was quite a surprise since he was supposed to be going back to the finish. so stopped to help him get back to the finish with some sketchy directions like 'ok go back to the main trail... turn left... then right... " so i was a bit worried for the rest of the race that he wasn't going to be able to find his way back, but once i had finished, i saw him wayyyy far down the trail just mosying along back.

orienteering race 18:19 [4]

great race... except for the last control... i was in the right area, but i couldn't find the control, so then i ended up over running it and it just didn't work out at all!!!! nailed all the rest of the controls though and just didn't feel so fast going back through the field

cycling 30:00 [1]

biking to and from woodroffe for the ultimate tourni

ultimate 1:40:00 [2]

Not exactly sure of the time but we played 5 games of 30min, and the girls go to play a lot since there were only 5 of us and 3 had to be on at once. Never actually won a game, but it we had tons of fun!!! the other teams were pretty intense... maybe even a little too intense...
we had one play that really messed them up called Delta Squadron! it was sick!!! the handler would yell it out and then everybody would just run around in circles pretending to be fighter spaceship thingymadooers. somebody was also supposed to run deep... but that didn't quite work when we tried it.
great day!! oh and i got a cool flashflight frisbee for getting the most points!!!!

orienteering 59:00 [4]

Welcome score-o meet at the sportsplex. had a really fantastic race and got all of the controls with 1min to spare. had a guy following me pretty much the whole entire time which was annoying, but it also made me run faster. bobbled a few controls, but nothing major.

running warm up/down 10:00 [1]

easy run around to warmup for both of the races... had a non-existant cooldown... woops

running race 5:50 [5] 1.5 km (3:53 / km)

Wow... what an epic steeplechase failure... started out alright, until i got to the 2nd lap and i lead with the wrong foot for one of the barriers. i usualy lead with my right foot, but i ran out of space and ended up jumping with my left one... that left my right leg kinda confused and i ended up smashing my knee against the barrier, but thankfully only stumbling, and not falling over it. that was the barrier right before the water pit... i don't even know what happened there, but i ended up going for a very chilly swim. it was not so nice. of course, everybody stands right by the water pit cause it's the most exciting part of the whole track meet, and when i came up gasping and spluttering everybody was just like "oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!!!!!!"
well i'm glad i could entertain all of you!!!! geepers!!!
took the lead for part of the race cause the girl ahead died right after the 3rd lap. couldn't hold it tho cause i was totally numb and i was bleeding all over the place and completely exhausted. dropped to second, and then 2m from the finish line, a girl sprinted past me which sucked, but i'm just glad that i completed the race!!!

running race 5:20 [5] 1.5 km (3:33 / km)

Drafted for a lot of this race behind the girl who was in 2nd, and then passed her 200m from the end. felt kinda bad about it, but it was still a fun race.

cycling 30:00 [2]

biking home from the meet. really strong wind the whole way which sucked.

orienteering 1:15:00 [1]

up at pink lake on the 1:15 000 map... definitely very tricky!!! was hard to tell exactly where some of the controls were but still great training.
