Hill training/Scrambling/Hiking 4:00:00 [3] 22.0 km (10:55 / km) +1300m 8:25 / km

What a day...,

Nice fast run into Burstell Pass. Crossed paths with Angela Ripley and convinced her to join us to summit. Complete whiteout from start of climb to summit of Snow Peak and back. Got sucked left on the descent in the fog as we blew down the scree. Fell badly and busted elbow. Returned to Burstell for lunch. Realized that Miles lost his iPhone. Reclimbed lower slopes and spent 90 minutes doing a fruitless grid search of the entire side of a mountain. Found two packs that were randomly abandoned to the mountain about 3 years ago (as determined from rusted car keys, coins and expiry of bear spray (weird). Gave up on phone search but then found it lying along our return route. Ran out and came upon Suzy and Liza who were looking for a hitch-hike.

Orienteering (Long course) 1:09:00 [3]

Wakana (the course setter) said this race would suit my strengths - as a fast runner with mediocre orienteering skills!!

And it did.

I had a near perfect race and maintained a max speed throughout. I was reading the map, reading ahead, and making good plans. My route choices were not always the most direct as I chose to play it safer and use the trail system. It added distance but reduced the hestitations.

I only got a little confused once when leaving #3 when I went the wrong way on a faint trail for a few meters.

YAY! A great way to end the weekend.

Ended up beating Tori by 6 seconds over almost 69 minutes ot running. Crazy.
