Orienteering Race race 1:57:55 [4]

Nationals Long.
Again, great course and great woods. No major mistakes, but with a lack of fitness legs weren't able to climb the many, many hills. Lots of mud and soft ground. I have no idea how I won the split going to the last control as Kendra and Phillip Turcanu both left me in their dust climbing the hill.

Orienteering Race 1:18:40 [4]

Nationals Middle.

Well, if you make over 15 minutes mistake on the second to last control, you're not very pleased.

Incredibly fun fast woods, great map and super course. GHO spends a long time running legs and testing courses for the elite and when you race one, you realize it is worth it.

Lovely day in the woods other than that one control.

Orienteering Race race 21:54 [5]

Sprint Nationals at McMaster. Probably about as fast I could run with my fitness, certainly wasn't clean. The courtyard between the Business School and Togo Sal has always slightly confused me. Few seconds around the tennis courts as well. Then the rest of it was lack of legs. Happy with the run.

Great arena around the Mac Track and really fun doing the announcing up high, felt like calling a track race from the press box.

Cycling 1:30:00 [1]

Very gentle cycling during nordic practice while the skiers roller-skied. Saving legs for the weekend.

Getting frost in Edmonton tonight. Looking forward to the warmth of Hamilton for a week.

Cycling 1:30:00 [1]

Well, maybe 90 minutes is a bit long as it includes Will and I watching people run a really fun Frank's race on Sask Drive (won by Frank the Beef as per usual). Nice easy ride to save the legs for the weekend. Good temp to ride and lots of fast looking runners on the trails.

Edmonton Nordic training, mostly hill striding and upper-body pole training.

Some interesting Nationals predictions going on.

Running warm up/down 40:00 [1]

Warming up and cooling down on a great night for running.

Orienteering Training race 21:00 [4]

Final Sprint training at the U of A to prep for Nationals. Another great course by Meghan Rance! We didn't use flags, but tried to get into some sort of flow.

The U of A is a really good sprint spot. Some really narrow spots through buildings, not many cars, pretty dense buildings.

Bunny count: 38 (give or take a couple)
