Hike 30:00 [2] 2.0 km (15:00 / km) +50m 13:20 / km
shoes: Raptor Red 1

Model map at the BCOC in Whistler (Brandywine Falls). Rocky terrain and tough running in the forest. A bit of a grey and drizzly day but fine for orienteering. Never rained very hard. As luck would have it I rolled by left ankle (of course on a trail not in the forest). A bit sore during the day and stiff tonight. We'll see how it feels tomorrow. Working on two bad ankles now as I keep jamming the right one repeatedly over the last few weeks.

Bike 45:00 [3] 6.0 km (8.0 kph) +260m

Late afternoon ride on Secret Trail (first part of CN) and down on Out There. Good loop - the CN climb is fun and Out There was a sweet line. Some good rock slabs. Skipped a couple short steep ones but overall felt like a good hard black trail. A bit drizzly but dry in the trees. Rock slabs were a bit wet but grippy enough. Would make a good loop with KMTM to make it a longer ride.
11 AM

Run 56:00 [3] 4.0 km (14:00 / km) +200m 11:12 / km
shoes: Raptor Red 1

BCOC middle. Kind of went like most of my orienteering events seem to - takes me a control or two to get into things, a couple bigger mistakes, a few smaller mistakes, finish with a respectable time but nothing amazing. One of the bigger mistakes was stupid - found the 3rd control easily but looked at the control description for the 4th control by mistake (3 and 4 were right next to each other with the number 3 being hidden a bit by a lake) which was obviously a different control number and spent 5 minutes looking for the "right" control before figuring out what had happened. At 6 got sucked left too early and at 9 ignored my compass and got detoured by a similar feature that was both off my correct bearing and not far enough. 10 minutes of mistakes - one of these times I'll actually run a middle with no mistakes...

As an aside I got pegged as an adventure racer in the start corral as I chatted up another orienteer. The lack of orienteering specific clothing must have given it away... though I have been tempted to get some O pants.

2nd to Brian May (16 minutes behind). Would have been 7th in M21.
2 PM

Run 21:00 [4] 3.45 km (6:05 / km) +100m 5:19 / km
shoes: Montrail Rogue Racer

BCOC sprint at Cheakamus Crossing. Both ankles were a bit stiff to start but felt better after the warm up. Ran well but petered out on the last long leg up the hill back to the athletes village. Not in race shape for running. 2 minutes of mistakes - biggest one was in the forest section as I was on a different trail then I thought and lost a minute relocating. Two other small mistakes due to hypoxia. Three minutes behind Brian May.

Bike 2:30:00 [3] 27.0 km (10.8 kph) +900m

Good solo ride in Squamish. Was surprised by the amount of climbing I accumulated as it didn't feel like that much. I think a lot of the climbs were quite nice grade which helps (and my legs felt pretty fresh and energetic). Nice dry conditions made the technical rock slabs a lot easier than on our last visit here. Cleaned all of Credit Line for instance. Loop included Rupert-Credit Line-CSHM-Wonderland-Entrails-Rollercoaster. Nice to check out some new trails though the repeats were probably the best ones. CSHM has a couple lines that were maybe doable by me but not solo. Wonderland was just OK though fine to use if you want to avoid the highway. Entrails was great although missed a couple of the rock slabs - you kind of have to know where the main line goes otherwise suddenly you've taken the alternate line by accident.

Bike (Road) 2:32:00 [3] 77.5 km (30.6 kph) +650m

A bit of a grey day so held off going too early. Turned out that the worst of the sprinkles were close to Sean and Juliann's. Salmon River and Deep Creek loop. Felt pretty steady for the first 2/3 - then a bit fatigued bot overall good pace. Only saw two other riders and they were wearing matching kit - probably European.
3 PM

Bike 30:00 5.5 km (11.0 kph) +85m

Seani-palooza. Only five riders this year and a staggered start. I was last to go and had to chase everyone down. Courtney managed to hold her lead and nipped me at the line. I was a bit tired from the riding this morning. Fun trail when riding it fast.
