orienteering (Stony Swamp) 1:00:16 [4] *** 5.43 km (11:06 / km)
16c shoes: adidas Response Trail XII 0040

I'm not surprised that the tape is already missing from high traffic spots, #3 (203) and #16 (210). However, these are such obvious features (that even I wouldn't miss them) and I will not reinstall flagging tape.

Now it's time to heal before the champs.

Lost Lucy signs have come down so I can only hope that she was found well.

My much too swampy walking shoes are in the garbage. I must find some shoes this weekend.

orienteering race 2:02:27 [3] *** 7.81 km (15:41 / km)
19c shoes: adidas Response Trail XII 0040

Stony Swamp
Long advanced

Flags will stay up on this course to be used for training. It's very much a runner's map. Translation: I over ran far too many targets. I'll put race comments in my splits.

I went back and ran the long intermediate which will also be left flagged for training. Before next season, I'll make sure that the tape is removed.

I stayed in the forest until 17h30 hoping to stumble upon Lucy the lost Labrador. Sadly, it didn't happen.

Stony Swamp
Long intermediate

I guess I didn't have much left in the tank for this one. I'm thankful that the volunteers let me start late. Comments are in my splits.

walking 10:00 [1] 1.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: ASICS Gel-Kahana

I'm covered in blister and bruises which will probably still be there at next week's North American championships.

Today I startled the same poor porcupine that I stumbled upon two weeks ago. In a race with a snail and a clam, I'm pretty sure the porcupine loses.

Pat passed away yesterday. I'm really sorry that I didn't get her to train me.

geocaching 48:19 [2] 2.44 km (19:48 / km)
ahr:96 max:144 shoes: adidas Response Trail XII 0040

I couldn't resist attempting the impossible, finding a geocache meant only for access by boat. I failed today but I still hope to get at GC1DA9K before using snowshoes. My average heart rate is so low because I had to take a cell phone call from Newfoundland while standing in knee-deep near-freezing water in the reeds on the Ottawa River.
