Orienteering race 15:25 [5] 3.0 km (5:08 / km) +85m 4:30 / km
shoes: Surrey K100s

Sage Stomp Sprint Course 8 - a great race, though I was wondering during the initial 6 contours of climb from the start to the first control. I was running just about flat out on everything except legs 4 and 5 due to concern about the cost of climbing back uphill if I didn't keep map contact and overran them.


Team and race selection can't be considered final until Ted has a chance to talk to those who had to leave to catch planes or think things over but, based on the meeting after the sprint, I'll be running the long and sprint races in Japan.

Orienteering race 1:30:34 [4] 12.6 km (7:11 / km) +455m 6:05 / km
shoes: Surrey K100s

Sage Stomp Long Distance Course 8 - a very good race (probably helped somewhat by neither Magnus nor I being able to definitively shake the other in the butterfly loops - why would anyone design a course with butterfly loops and not go to the small additional trouble of having competitors do them in different orders?)

Event: Sage Stomp


Sage Stomp - second Canadian selection weekend, three more selected plus one discretionary based on this and/or the Gator Cup

Orienteering race 53:32 [4] 7.1 km (7:32 / km) +315m 6:10 / km
shoes: Surrey K100s

Sage Stomp Middle Distance Course 8 - a good but not great race - one significant parallel error approaching the vicinity of the control on 4, overly conservative and climb-intensive route to 3, the rest I won't beat myself up over. The fact that ten seconds better would have moved me up two places rankles a bit.

Cycling 1:30:00 [3] 18.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

Would have liked to fit a little bit of running into the taper for this weekend but it was apparently not to be for schedule reasons. At least injury is unlikely while cycling. Got passed by a very impressive roadie heading down a long hill on Wisconsin Ave, gave chase for about 100 meters, then thought "Low impact or not, how stupid is it to sprint in an attempt to keep up with this guy two days before a trials race?" and backed off.
