Run 47:30  9.0 km (5:17 / km)
Basically the same as last saturday, which is 'about' 9km there and back apparently. Better, 4 minutes better apparently but didn't really feel 4 minutes more convincing. I know I spent less time walking today but I don't think it can all come down to that.

Mt Vic, probably the best use of the non-schools part of the map in all the times I've been here with some great route choice legs and no misguided attempts to try to maximise technical navigation. I missed seeing a few routes here and there through not seeing some of the fine detail until after the fact but I'm happy the routes I did use were equal or better for the most part. Execution was good too, just a bit wayward at the beginning of 5-6 which cost a bit of added climb but very little relocation time; and 9-10 slipped off a real track that would have almost gone directly to the control on to a phantom one which didn't. Again, quick to relocate from. This was after the 'natural' exit from 9 channeled me onto a route different from what I'd originally intended (but probably better!) but I don't think that contributed to the mistake at the end of the leg. Tough work but still felt good physically.
And that's probably the end of orienteering for the calendar year, so need to find a way to keep the momentum up!

Surrounds of Percy's Reserve
, in and out of some typically delightful Wellington urban fringe wilderness, much of it new to me. Many contours were crossed though so not the best of days to have heavy legs right from the start. Only real nav error was 6-7, but it was expensive with the wrong spur being about 100m from the right one (but otherwise a perfect match) which doesn't sound far but in this terrain... other than that, not always the best route choices, if I'd avoided the messy bit of map 11-12 and either hadn't gambled on the direct route 4-5 (or if the gamble had paid off rather than leading to a delightful gorse+cliff combo) I might
have almost been looking at the hour.
