Friday Oct 9, 2009 #

Run warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.3 km (7:42 / km)
shoes: August 2009 Integrators

To the start of the O-intervals.

Mildly raining.

Orienteering intervals 35:00 [4] 5.1 km (6:52 / km) +175m 5:51 / km
shoes: August 2009 Integrators


We paired up people fairly well. I put myself with Matthieu ( and we would proved to have decent parity.

Eddie was paired with Tero. Not sure how that was.

Anyway, did pretty well. A little shaky on the first leg on A. B was good except for the penultimate control, and C was bad in that I went to the wrong second control (just misread the forking.)

On the second loop, I benefited from catching up to! Francois in some green and just following along on the shared legs. (Which, in my mind was very much in the spirit of the exercise.)

It was raining heavily at the end of the exercise.

Run warm up/down 12:00 [2] 1.7 km (7:04 / km)
shoes: August 2009 Integrators

From the interval finish to the start of the middle middle.

Orienteering 45:00 [3] ***** 4.2 km (10:43 / km) +120m 9:23 / km
shoes: August 2009 Integrators

Middle middle. Started out OK on the first two. Physically, they were a struggle (really high, gnarly bushes) but then cruised real well until 6. Badly messed up 7, and then 8 (10 was mishung) and then I downshifted.

Nikolay and Andrew passed me at 8 (Nikolay started 2 minutes behind me--I wanted some pressure.) I caught up to Nikolay at 12 and Andrew before 15, finishing a bit ahead of Andrew and a decent amount ahead of Nikolay.

Time is approximate. (Splits lost for subsequent splits.)

Hogen Camp Friday 1 and 20001

Run warm up/down 18:00 [2] 2.5 km (7:12 / km) +80m 6:12 / km
shoes: August 2009 Integrators

To the start of the TT middle. Rain had stopped, but still quite cloudy and wet.

Orienteering race 42:06 [3] ***** 4.3 km (9:47 / km) +215m 7:50 / km
14c shoes: August 2009 Integrators

2003 TT Middle Re-Run.

(I had run this course once with Wyatt as training. My re-run was as good as his original run.)

Started off brilliantly and orienteered most of the course quite well. Until #5, when I dropped a few minutes, a bit more on #7, and a bit on #13. 18 seconds to tie my shoes on #11. A good run would have probably been 37. Nowhere close to Brian May's time.


Hogen Camp Friday 2003 TT Middle0001

Run warm up/down 12:00 [2] 2.0 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: August 2009 Integrators

Back from the finish of the 2003 TT.


A back-of-the-envelope calculation suggests that Brian would have received 118 (current day) AP ranking points for his run there. (Hammer got 108.)

Not sure whether this is right, but I do know that is a really good run for an American (Canadian.)
