Street O selection race at Blackburn lake. 40th anniversary of the first street O, organised by T. Cosy (who also organised today's event). It was pretty warm, possibly low 30s. I didn't feel like running again and walked some of the hills. I had almost given up when l saw Debbie, my main competitor, and figured she had just a little bit further to go than me. So l sped up and got selected. But it wasn't one of my better efforts.
The ARDF people came back to my house to christen my new BBQ and eat the coconut and blueberry cake l made. Great to have the company. It was still very warm at 11pm when they left .
Run 36:34  5.0 km (7:19 / km)
Very slow shuffle around Blackburn lake and creeklands, getting my daily dose of bush. My legs (quads) are still quite sore from the weekend's hills.
Orienteering 1:29:00  7.15 km (12:27 / km)
BendiGo Today day 2 course B hagaby. I only just made the 0800 start, feeling still half asleep. Did the first loop well and came in for the changeover close to Blake and Jayne. Hung onto them for a few more controls until l had difficulty with #12, which was the first big hill and l was too low on the gully, Then lost motivation a bit and slowed down for the next big hill. Caught up to Stuart and passed him towards the end. Pretty pleased to finish given there were so many DNFs and MPs. The training is starting to pay off, but l need to do more big hills so that l am not psyched out when l see them on the map. Took about an hour to extract the prickles from my socks afterwards. Thanks Jim - great event (as usual).
Orienteering 22:00  2.32 km (9:29 / km)
BendiGo ToDay course B sprint at Mt Tarrengower near Malden. Great course, set by Jim, in amongst the rocks. I was clean except for 10-11, when l had a burst of confidence and went too low on a bad bearing.
Great way to spend my birthday. The highlight was then a fabulous batch of mulberry (l think) and blueberry muffins made by Jools.
Run 37:42  5.5 km (6:51 / km)
Run around Blackburn lake and creeklands on a nice coolish morning. Still not feeling great, but l am getting marginally faster on this route.
