Cross country 1:26:03 [3] 9.0 mi (9:34 / mi)
(injured) shoes: adidas Response Trail XII 0199

My training in May '07 set another minimal record: 30 minutes a day.

shorts and short sleeves

Today I ran from route 80 along the Reid Newfoundland rail bed, behind Backside Pond, along the ocean and then through Whiteway. It was difficult to locate the bed just passed St Andew's church. I must seek an old photograph of that church. I spotted an iceberg off Cavendish.

I am registering for a 25k race in Miquelon later in the month.

With no notice on Monday, I drove to Catalina and back to pick up Uncle Steve and four of his mates from their crab boat. I had not been up that way since jra was learning to drive.

I still had Avis' car on Tuesday and drove old Broad Cove road to the old track. The target was 500m of decades-abandoned right-of-way just east of Broad Cove station. With exception of nails in the collapsed bridge, I found no evidence of steel or glass on that grown over stretch.

Thursday m & I hiked to Anderson Cove. Later I explored the ocean-side forest-floor old track between Backside Pond and Whiteway. I also collected recyclables along the TCTrail between routes 81 and 100.

This was my first orienteering event in Newfoundland. I am very happy with orienteering Newfoundland style: a choose-your-trail trail race.

The maps had only one control in common. Second time round, I took the map even faster.

With Penny and Aunt Julie aboard, our car and its alternator died midway between Dildo and St John's. Heather came to take her mother home and me to Avis at YYT. P & M waited for the tow truck.
