orienteering 27:10 [4] *** 5.7 km (4:46 / km) +50m 4:34 / km
20c shoes: S-lab xa amphibs

WC champs middle.

1st half pretty much a Sprint course and not particularly interesting, but second half was a lot more fun, still super fast, but a little bit of nav needed at least. Nothing much in the way of mistakes. Can maybe find 45seconds or so of slightly bad lines and hesitations, but speed definitely isn't quite there at the moment.

WC champs long

New map which is always nice. Enjoyed the first 3 controls and then tried to cut a corner of "marsh" on the way to #4, took 1 step and sunk neck deep in what was pretty much sewerage..

Crawled out and found my map completely covered in "mud", dunked it in a puddle to try clear it a bit, not realising it was only paper... So 3 controls in and my map is pretty much disintegrated. Thought about heading back to the start to try get another, but was too far to be worth it. Could still see most of the control circles, albeit it a few rather smudged, and only some of the in between bits were completely gone.

Spent the rest of the course being very cautious+ just using the features I could make out (forced simplification ;) ). Was okay for most of it, just a couple kak legs with very thick green sections I couldn't really see and went straight through. Besides the getting stuck in green, just a bunch of 30ish sec mistakes in the circles.

2 swims, a rubdown in dettol, 3 showers, and 1bath later and I still smell like crap :/..

shoes: S-lab ultra 2

David was in town and keen for a run and I hadn't been up devils in ages, so..

From campus, r.mem, blockouse, knife edge, front face, down middle traverse joining the jeep at the tafelberg gate.

Fairly solid effort up besides the min or so break to admire some Tahrs. Then enjoying the descent a bit too much and David went over his ankle pretty hard, so ended up walking the rest of the way down from the saddle (Got to enjoy the views at least) And probably good for the knee anyway.
