Orienteering race (NSW SL3) 2:07:04 [3] 14.9 km (8:32 / km) +246m 7:53 / km

decided to run M21 for the extra 3km

lots of long legs ...

good nav to 4, had a decent drink
planned an executed 5 well
drinks on way to 6

problems with 7 .. hit the spur I wanted but seemed to be following it more than expected (was hoping to hit the bunch of termite mounds)
hit a largish termite mound near the fence (un mapped and didn't see the fence) turned left to hopefully see more, ended up relocating from the 2 mounds on the other side of the gully, hit the fence for the first time just after that then on to 7
8-9 as planned, another drink..
9-10 was a monster .. thought going right and track may be quickest, little climb, but then told myself I am doing this for the nav challenge, not track running so chose a path and followed it well until i almost got the circle, watercourse i thought i was on (which i was) didn't look like the correct direction, so checked right and left before heading down the hill to the control - I didn't want to overshoot the control and climb any more.

Orienteering race (NSW SL2) 51:39 [3] 6.2 km (8:20 / km) +82m 7:49 / km

missed 2 a little, I don't think I was thinking of the termite mounds as dots yet .. but not much time lost, avoided most green and generally clean early

happy with run till 10 .. couldn't decide which route for 10-11 and ended up going through some green then left, then took a spur too early ... grrr, I think i always wanted to go right, but thought i'd see what it was like going straight then made myself go left ...

12-13 wasn't pretty, I figured I had turned left off the spur too early, but no Idea how early, so decided to go to the watercourse and hope to see the control from there.

17-18, saw the control. checked map, convinced myself the control was in the gully before mine so went left to the next one, only things were way wrong now, realised the control was mine so went back :/

similar result to last state league, comfortably in 2nd, a long way off 1st and 3rd place

running (lunch run) 3:42:38 [3] 28.1 km (7:55 / km) +800m 6:56 / km
shoes: New Balance

I will be attempting the 45km in 10 days ..

I needed to know if I can make the cutoff, so I tried the first half

got there in 3:06 at 23.6km (24 km expected 3:30 cutoff)

I thought I was taking it relatively easy, but I am pretty buggered .. the 45km is going to hurt big time ...
