Orienteering 15:32 [4] 3.18 km (4:53 / km) +63m 4:27 / km

Sprint San Fran. Qualifier Sprint at UC Berkley. Excellent Map, This one was only a little challenging though so a bit more runner-sy. An error not reading my control description on 8 but otherwise pretty good.

Came away with 1st, only 7 seconds ahead of will. A couple of the other fast guys decided to sandbag this one waiting for the finals - stay tuned for how that plays out for them ;)

Orienteering 17:10 [4] 3.57 km (4:49 / km) +72m 4:22 / km

The Final.
An excellent race. Used all the hard parts on the right half of campus. Got hard by 3 and stayed that way the whole race. Caught Will at 10 and dropped him on the route choice to 12. Suboptimal route choices to 7, 14, and maybe 9. But no real mistakes. Felt good to do a nice hard sprint at reasonable speed and relatively quite cleanly, could maybe have made up 30s with flawless navigation. Mostly just need to get faster!

1st place with 52s over Francois.

Most importantly my ankle hardly hurt at all. Maybe the exercises and rolling have been helping. Maybe the new usage of KT tape has made it instantly better.
Still a bit swollen by Sunday night but no real pain still!

Orienteering 10:44 [3] 2.28 km (4:42 / km) +35m 4:22 / km

Sprint San Fran. Round 1.
Took it a bit easy as I wasn't feeling 100% and wanted to see how the ankle'd hold up. Also only needed to cruise to win me heat. 2nd overall on the course so wasn't going toooo slow.

Watch didn't give reasonable HR data all weekend.

Orienteering 11:05 [4] 2.31 km (4:48 / km) +40m 4:25 / km

Round 2.
Had a couple speedy runners breathing down my neck the whole way so made it a bit speedier. Still 2nd with 4 seconds back on Adam.

Orienteering 11:56 [4] 2.57 km (4:39 / km) +33m 4:22 / km

Round 3.
Felt like SART all over again with a pack of hungry dogs chasing me. I lead the first couple, Laraia made a break and punched #3 first, promptly forgot about #4 and was never seen (by me, still came third) again. I punched 4, 5, Adam made a break but went to the wrong bushes for #6 so I continued to lead, having the butterflies just to myself. Adam caught some time on a long run across the field to 16 and was on my heels through 20, I popped through the bushes wrong on 21 though and he took the lead for the last 3. Also he was running a bit quick - I couldn't catch him.
2nd place by 10 seconds, for the large Toblerone bar :)

WET in Coal Harbour. Great fun and a good challenge in the fog and on a new map, made a couple small mistakes.

Borrowed a bike trainer from a friend at school so I could ride while watching my cheesy Netflix superhero shows. Mildly more interesting than riding at the gym but still mentally quite challenging to make it to an hour. Better at keeping it in a lower zone though.
