Cycling (FROGs ride) 1:36:02 [2] 30.1 km (3:11 / km) +36m 3:10 / km
shoes: Giant Anthem 2 XL 2019

Cold morning to be standing around on the coast at Watermans while an orienteer couldn't find the start. Eventually abandoned him to his navigational follies. Pleasant enough ride once we got going, although the chilly easterly persisted throughout. Coffee at Burns Beach was even more welcome than usual.

Orienteering (MTBO tape checking) 5:00:00 [2] 20.3 km (14:47 / km)
shoes: Giant Anthem 2 XL 2019

Checking tapes at Marrinup North for the MTBO Long Champs. No significant issues. A couple of stream crossings added some interest. Bit of a downer on Scarp Rd heading back to the car - rhythmical thump, thump from the back wheel which turned out to be a big blister on the tyre hitting the frame. Didn't burst but doesn't look like it would last much longer. Fortunately, I have a spare so I can amuse myself tomorrow playing bike mech.

Orienteering race (Middle Distance Champs) 1:06:52 [2] 3.3 km (20:14 / km) +71m 18:16 / km
shoes: Merrell Continuum

Quarry Road revisited after eons - Mike and Dan selected an interesting slice of the area and it was much better orienteering than I remember. Nonetheless, I managed an early wander off-course to #2 and then completely lost the plot going to #8 - eventually gave up and headed for the creek to relocate and walked right onto my control! Still managed to get second place in M70 because there were only two entries - did at least achieve my usual goal (since about 1985) of getting inside twice Simmo's time.
