Orienteering 1:46:19 [5] 11.43 km (9:18 / km) +120m 8:50 / km
20c shoes: X-Claw 275

Second day of Ottawa O-fest, long distance. Thankfully a little cooler than yesterday, but still hot enough to be uncomfortable by the end. The terrain was mostly flat which some deep, steep gullies. The bush was thicker than yesterday, and I was moving through it pretty slowly (definitely at <80% speed through all the white). This was my first ever chase start. Started 6 minutes behind yesterday's winner Forest, and 16 seconds behind second-placed Anton. Anton and I took different routes to #1 and to #2, but I saw him at both controls. Then we also took a different route to #3, and I didn't see him again until he suddenly appeared again at #8. Then I straight away lost him again until we ended up running side by side to the spectator control #13. It seemed like it might be an interesting battle to the end. Unfortunately I messed up #15 (stopped a gully short) and that was race over. Finished fourth on the day, but still held on to third place overall, so I ended up on the podium and got a little souvenir to take home.

Orienteering race 40:17 [5] 4.48 km (9:00 / km) +75m 8:18 / km
16c shoes: X-Claw 275

First day of Ottawa sweat fest, middle distance. My first ever bush event outside of WA. An area with lots of little undulations and plenty of other features to navigate by. It was a challenge to navigate fast. The guy who started 2 minutes behind me caught me at #4 and we swapped the lead until #9, but I exited that control in the wrong direction and lost him. Lost some more time at #13, and finished 6 minutes off the pace in 3rd place (M35 with a field of 12 or 13 runners). Nice to be running in terrain very different to our terrain in WA. The organisers provided lots of food and drinks at the finish, including icy poles which helped to cool down a bit.

Walking 4:20:39 [2] 15.02 km (17:21 / km) +769m 13:49 / km

Walk starting from Mont Tremblant village up to the top of the hills and back down again. The trail to Pic Johannsen was closed, but there were plenty of other trails, and it was another beautiful walk. After some more walking through Ottawa in the evening, I ended up with more than 32,000 steps for the day.
