running 40:31 [3] 6.69 km (6:03 / km) +47m 5:51 / km
ahr:144 max:162

On the ONSW website there’s a story about Aston Key’s fantastic results at JWOC. It’s accompanied by a story of how the junior team made a map of the sprint area in advance, using Google Earth and Streetview. The map was almost identical to the actual sprint map on which Aston won gold.

Now I guess this isn’t cheating (like underarm bowling wasn’t illegal at the time), and anyone could do it, but it must have been an advantage for the Australian team to have effectively had time to study the map in advance, which was I believe a ‘new’ map.

Given anybody could make a sprint map, and it would be impossible to enforce a prohibition, the rules should probably be changed to ensure that everyone gets to see a sprint map at least a week in advance.

running 24:12 [3] 5.01 km (4:50 / km) +52m 4:36 / km
ahr:139 max:174

I got squeezed for time between meetings, so I put a bit more speed into this one than normal.

My watch tells me I set a record for a mile - 7 min 31 sec. But the 5k time was still slower than I was running at the middle of last year, before Sweden.

Appin SHOO club event

Control #2 was not where it should have been. I attacked from four directions and always came to the same feature. I never found the control.

They have published the splits. Looking at Mark Freeman's splits, I should have had a time of about 57 minutes. Pretty slow compared with Mark and a few others, but not as bad as my official time.
