pedaling (mountain bike) 1:07:32 [3] 9.46 km (7:08 / km) +204m 6:27 / km

Willard Brook. After a spectacular morning of hang gliding on the Cape, I had been planning to go back to work for the afternoon, but the weather was so nice that I said screw it, and ran a couple of errands then went out for a ride. I had a plan in mind that wouldn't involve any singletrack, because I thought the freshly fallen leaves might make things slippery, but my mental map was defective and the trail I was on petered out, and I had to push the bike through nice woods for a while between km 3 and 4. I popped out at the south end of Cop Out, so I ended up doing 3/4 of Trilogy anyway. I very nearly made it through Trilogy East with no stops. The climb around km 7 is something that I think I'd done on foot before, and downhill on the bike, but never uphill on the bike. I'm very proud that I made it up with no stops, but I'm not sure I'll ever be inclined to do it again -- it was hard! Pretty nice way to wrap up the day.

orienteering race 1:14:19 [3] *** 7.95 km (9:21 / km) +180m 8:24 / km
spiked:22/23c shoes: Icebug Spirit

Nobscot, Red, 6.8 km, 300 m, 10th. Not moving particularly fast, but at least I was mostly clean. Lost a few seconds on the first control mostly due to the detail around the start being obscured by the triangle and double circle, and on the long leg (#21), I really had no idea where I was for a good portion of the leg, but just kept telling myself that it didn't matter, just keep going SE and you'll figure it out eventually, which I did, but I lost about 1:45, presumably in large part due to drifting left early on. There was probably some trail route that would have been at least as fast. Best split was second place on #5, a well in some green where I lucked out and ran right to it. Beautiful autumn day, quite a nice course.
