Orienteering race 46:49 [4] **** 3.7 km (12:39 / km) +65m 11:38 / km
spiked:16/slept:8.0 shoes: Innov8-2(Yellow)

11.00am: NAOC 2014 Ottawa,ON: Middle
After yesterday's model realized this was going to be a very technical course with not all features on map and subtle contour differences - 2.5m contours. Important to take bearings even if lost a bit of time doing so.
Ok to 1, slow and steady to 2, ok to 3, lost about 1.5 min on 4, as drifted too far north. The distinct vegetation boundary was more distinct further north as an areal of fir trees, whereas the distinct veg boundary shown was not obvious at all. Surprise as approaching 5 as saw Rick Bressman who started 4 mins ahead of me. 5-6 know to be careful on this leg. Across power line right of way okay and r to stream to follow into control. Got confused as stream seemed to disappear before and when at control initially I thought it was not mine even though I knew I was near. 6-7 another leg to take carefully and check off features along the way which I executed well. Rick was further to my right. Hit control ahead of him. 7-8-9 executed fine - on bearing and reading features. 9-10 had an interesting part crossing two beaver dams. 10-11-12-13-14-15 clean and accurate. 15-16 lost a minute + as got caught at wrong trail! Overall happy with my run, steady, a reasonable pace with minimal mistakes. 6th place and first USA. Downside Ted de St Croix demolished the course in 33 mins!

Orienteering 50:00 [1] 2.0 km (25:00 / km)
shoes: Innov8-2(Yellow)

NAOC - Ottawa, ON: Middle Distance Model Event
2.00pm: walked a number of legs with Carol to try to get a feel for the map. Very technical, 2.5m contours and a lot of stuff not shown on map. Tough to read in places even with magnifier. Tomorrow the aim is to use compass bearings and stay in contact with map.

Cycling 38:45 [3] 9.5 mi (4:05 / mi)

6.05am: Cycled the loop steady pace, stopped a couple of times to try to photograph A Blood moon - total eclipse of a full moon. First view about 90% covered, then saw fully covered on way back on Kelly Dr, just before it dropped over the horizon. Pretty cool. Out 20.01, Back 18.44.

Cycling 36:22 [4] 9.5 mi (3:50 / mi)
slept:7.5 weight:195.4lbs shoes: Bike: Jamis Coda Comp - hybrid

6.15am: 63 degF and cloudy. Cycled the loop pushing a good pace. Seemed like a head wind most of it both ways! Out 18.56, Back 17.26.

Stretching 10:00 [0]

Good stretch after cycle.


: Finally a visit to Tony the chiropractor - much needed.

Cycling 1:42:39 [4] 26.0 mi (3:57 / mi)
slept:8.5 weight:197.6lbs shoes: Bike: Jamis Coda Comp - hybrid

9.45am: Cool 45 degF but sunny, cycled out to Coffee shop in Conshohocken. Crazy to start was sponsored walks on both West River Dr and Kelly Dr. Went out Kelly and managed to work ones way around them. A decent head wind most of the way. Out 55.55min, coffee stop 10 min, Back 46.44 min. Pushing along at a decent pace on the way back, raised seat at one point and think better drive as a result. Met some cyclist groups doing part of the East Coast Greenway. They are doing it over a 10 year period - seemed a cool idea.
