4 PM

Orienteering 59:35 [2] 8.44 km (7:04 / km) +147m 6:30 / km
ahr:128 max:145

Boggy Draw
More Terrain run than O. Beautiful pine forest with patches of stunted oak and exposed sandstone slabs. Purple penned a course, but with no contours and no North on the map it was a bit futile. (I found #7 and knew only later I was at #2). Regardless of the shortcomings I'm hooked and will try coming here often before NAOC. Very similar to Little Truckee. 7600' very fast. Few features. Lots of veg boundaries and clusters of crags/boulders.....then nothing for 1/2-1k. Figured out that the large green tended to be north facing valley slopes.
There were also old traces which formed long gullies and dried up water holes long disused, as depressions. None on the map (yet).
This was probably 1/7th of the area Greg has given me. Very excited to explore more and he's covered everywhere that needs to be researched.
NB. Got up close and personal with a large coyote. Both respected each other.
NNB. And yes I did run significantly off the edge of the map I printed off.

I've read that "Twenty" thread. Here's my thoughts....and they're horrible...but this is my mentality.
If the Games pay Wyatt, Boris, Joe, Niels, Eric, William etc's entry and they at least give the impression they're going to, maybe, be there..., then I'll enter. Otherwise I'm not interested. I want to race the best if I'm going to travel.
But they don't have to declare they're comping them. I'm more inclined to enter. That's just me. I want to travel and race the best. Comping our Elites at any age group would entice me to rock up. It'd only make the sport better and myself more motivated. That cost is peanuts too.
8 AM

Running long 2:21:28 [1] 21.0 km (6:44 / km) +528m 5:59 / km
ahr:121 max:139

LSD with Kendal. House, Penelope, Lime, Keystone to home. This was a huge feat for Kendal. No whining, just plugged away. Immensely proud of her.
My knee bitched early doors, but things are positive.
NB. Got my entry in at 6am for IPR.
NNB. Aced parenting today. Love these bairns.

2 PM

Running hills 1:00:24 [4] 10.0 km (6:02 / km) +197m 5:30 / km
ahr:124 max:143

Easy from the Roastery. Down Keystone (which was in full spate. Sublime.) Then Illium and finally 9x2mins Hills up Goose TT. Hopefully my things are on the up training wise.
NB. Entered Montana. Really looking forward to Lubrecht. My all time favourite US terrain. (And I didn't have a good run there.)

Thursday May 30 #

(rest day)

Progress with the map.
Couple of concerns, so no Purple Pen/O-range until I've had a snoop around.

Wednesday May 29 #

3 PM

Running 1:01:56 [1] 9.41 km (6:35 / km) +236m 5:51 / km
ahr:112 max:129

Very Easy with Kendal. Iron Mountain Spur. Mad day all round. Really tired.
Looks like the wife is moving back. Brent in town. Greg sent me a Boggy Draw map. (This is the biggest, most stressful news...spent all evening updating and relearning Windows. Then......not got near Purple Pen. Then .....not got anywhere near O-Range.)
But potentially this map could supersede the map of The New World in historical relevance. Very excited.

Tuesday May 28 #

3 PM

Running intervals 53:07 [4] 9.7 km (5:29 / km) +147m 5:05 / km
ahr:130 max:145

2x19mins, 5x3mins. Goose to Sunshine Trailhead. With Kendal just before the HOA meeting.
NB. Woke up crappy still, but finishing the day without a cough. Maybe I'm done with the illness. Still UNPRODUCTIVE on the Garmin, but the Max VO2 isn't too bad.

Monday May 27 #

2 PM

Running long 1:45:01 [1] 11.35 km (9:15 / km) +624m 7:15 / km
ahr:103 max:126 (sick)

LSD in Ophir, up to Cabanaro Mine. With Kendal. A big father/daughter moment. I thought I'd be waiting, but she just cruised the whole lot. No walking. Never struggled. Big plans after this I think we might try OMM in a couple of years. I was really proud how far she's come. Perfect conditions.
NB. I'm still struggling to shake whatever I'm shaking.
NNB. Saw my physio afterwards. She broke her leg in Verbier skiing. $25,000 bill from three ops there. THEN $250,000 bill from another three in Salt Lake. OOooooph. The insurance story was disgusting.
