Cycling (Truck fix pt1) 52:13 [2] 13.51 km (3:52 / km) +3m 3:52 / km
shoes: Giant Anthem 2 XL 2019

Truck needed some specialist surgery at United Diesel in Guildford, so getting back seemed like a riding opportunity (Easter Carnival will wipe out anything else for a week). First part was to get to Claisebrook and catch the train to Kelmscott. Uneventful ride but a bit hard into the wind.

Cycling (Truck fix pt2) 1:32:08 [2] 10.35 km (8:54 / km) +300m 7:47 / km
shoes: Giant Anthem 2 XL 2019

Ex Kelmscott station and have to face a big hill - figured Turner Road was safest with big gates across it. Sign said walkers only - no mention of bicycles, just anything with an engine is banned. I quickly qualified as walker anyway - quite a slog. An altercation with a small gumtree and some dead parrot bush in the Chevin Road resulted in lots of blood but no serious wounds. Caused the chick at the Roley coffee shop much concern but my macho "she'll be right - it's only a flesh wound" got me by. Good to get home.

Orienteering race (NavDash John XXIII) 44:11 [2] 3.75 km (11:47 / km) +3m 11:44 / km
shoes: Merrell Continuum

Did the hard long course and it was fun - mostly. Maintained a steady walking pace around the course with only minor nav blemishes, although #5 could have been a disaster without the Brownlies just in front of me working out it was on a level above where I was. Steady progress until #18 and then a completely wrong exit which left me back at #2 - flipped the map to work out where I was and then still made a hash of getting to #19. The rest was pretty smooth. Must be quite challenging doing it at running pace :-)
