Running 5:15:00 [2]

Knee knacker training run. About 50 people came out, so was usually running with people. At first started out with some girl I knew, but I think she was taking it slower... so when going up the steep part of black mountain I went ahead. Then ran with a british guy named David for awhile on top of black mountain (till I did a fast decent on the snow). Then had some problems finding the start of the trail again on the other side of cypress. After slightly loosing the trail then leading some people down into a sketchy river crossing (there was really no alternative) I was by myself for a bit after I got to the other side faster... then found Mike Rhodes, who on the same river crossing had somewhat frozen his feet, but they were defrosting and we ran together through Hollyburn (good since I have no idea where the trail goes there). On the Decent out of there I took off by myself, passing a quite a few people (I think some had taken the short cut along the road to the xc ski area). Then as I came down to cleveland damn there was a girl running with me, and then another girl just behind who caught up when we stopped to get water at Cleveland. We sauntered up the hill and ran the rest together. Saw Magnus on the trail above his house. By the end I felt kinda weak, I will have to eat more on the race... when there are aid stations with more real food (not just gels/bars).
Michel came back not long after, and we both tried to eat burgers... and both felt nauseous, and had trouble getting them down (forced myself). Not sure why this occurred.

Running 8:00 [3]

Run down to Jericho

Orienteering 36:00 [3]

Fun exercise for bearings with all the controls on benches, but forgot my compass. Took a little thumb compass from lender box - but turned out to not work, or at least settle so slowly that it was useless. So went off estimation/angles.
Normal course after, was a really good use of the area (we should make Hilary set courses more often ;).
