Around the river including Mt Henry. On a whim, and because I was in no particular hurry, I followed the river paths around Heathcote and Majestic. Then in the same vein at Point Walter and on to the (not very good) path above Blackwall Reach. Continued to Blackwall Reach Parade, then up the 'Mur de Braunton' which more than made up for missing my usual Majestic and Stock Rd climbs.
With a stiff NEly blowing, I had to work hard up the coast and all the way home.
Almost 40,000kms on the Beemer, and 7,500kms so far this year - should make it to 10k easily.
Orienteering race 1:00:20  3.7 km (16:18 / km) +175m 13:11 / km

State Long Champs at Abercorn Rd. GPS 4.73km, 200m climb. Took longer and safer routes to 1 and 2, then more direct and faster going to 3 and 4. Slight error at 4 going up the wrong creek for 30m before realising and correcting. 5 was an uphill slog, but made sure of the approach - others lost a fair bit of time here. From 5 to the finish was slow, but I was careful again, and pulled up from 6th place on the course at 4 to 2nd at the finish - ahead of M65s again. Tough but very enjoyable course - reminded me of days in the 80s at places like JFNP, Kalamunda, Walyunga and Radnor.
Orienteering race 16:13  1.7 km (9:32 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230
WA Sprint Champs at Murdoch Uni. GPS 2.32km. Scrappy sort of run with hesitations. Route choice errors at 11 and 15, and a nav error at 15 as well, costing 20 secs and 40 secs. Beat all the M65s, but way behind the other classes on the course (M & W16, W21, M & W55). Arguably M16 and W21 should be on a longer course, and us older folks should have a 1:3000 map (both my errors were caused by lack of legibility on the run).
Road cycling 2:17:26  51.64 km (2:40 / km)

Around the river. HR profile appears fairly normal, so Wednesday's recording must have been a technical glitch.
Road cycling 2:01:27  45.16 km (2:41 / km)
ahr:98 max:101 shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto
West Coast ride - used the Garmin again, but something appears wrong with the HR data. The top of the profile is completely flat for most of the ride, and a max of 101 can't be right - especially ascending Reabold, and the ascent of Hale Rd shows an HR of -80 for the whole climb. Wrist HR monitors don't have a good reputation, but up until this ride mine has been pretty consistently in the ballpark.
Pulled into the car park above the City Beach groyne to check out the surf and the progress of the supposedly advancing cold front. The former was a good size, but too sloppy, and the latter was not really discernible with relatively dry-looking clouds as far as I could see.
Wind was NWly, but not too strong.
Road cycling 2:43:37  62.94 km (2:36 / km)
ahr:100 max:152 shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto
Around the river, via Curtin, Aquinas & Mt Henry. Foggy between Mends St and Waterford - could barely see the City from the South Perth side.
Used the Garmin even though I'm reluctant to since falling off the bike and cracking the screen last year, but I wanted to see the HR data. However, seems like there's no replication of very high maxima when riding.
