Orienteering race (Aus sprint champs) 17:47 [4] 3.2 km (5:33 / km)
shoes: Mizuno Wave Hitogami 3

Technical campus sprint. Never my fauté. Brute forced my way to 8th with running speed more than anything else I think. A frustrating sprint but I don't think many had a clean run. Sprints are something I seldom get to practice so my expectations are never high for this discipline.

Spent 6 hours after my flight waiting in the airport. Got through most of youtubes catalogue I think.

Running (Fartlek ) 49:15 [4] 10.5 km (4:41 / km) +100m 4:29 / km
shoes: Saucony Kinvara 6 (August 2016

Pre aus champs fartlek, to remind the legs what fast pace feels like after almost a whole week of slow stuff. Found a bush loop near mum and dad's place and just did 10 times 1min on/1min off. I think distance is off, considering I was pretty much going at a full out sprint and the lap distances were never more than 300m for the 1min. Legs felt much better than on Tuesday! Flying out tomorrow and meeting up with the junior team!

Running (Recovery run) 52:00 [2] 10.0 km (5:12 / km) +100m 4:57 / km
shoes: Saucony Kinvara 6 (August 2016

Nice evening recovery run. Legs felt a little full of junk today which I expected after the big weekend.

(rest day)

Taking back my comment about the legs feeling alright :p Big day helping dad build a dividing fence for the new house that we're building next year. Left hammy which was often nagging in the background during the super longs was a bit painful today but a week of light stuff should have it feeling fine by saturday.

Orienteering race 49:23 [3] *** 8.6 km (5:45 / km) +150m 5:17 / km
shoes: Salomon Fel-Cross 3 July

A nice hit out prior to Aus Champs. The legs actually felt fine today after yesterday's run which is weird. Took this one easy because I just wanted a nice clean run before heading up to Queensland. Kinda regret going so easy! I feel like I would have been close to Macey's time today given a full effort! Congrats to Macey on the W today!

Can't say the area was terribly inspiring. A lot of vague gullies and track running. Good to practice my compass. Annoyed at missing a few gullies by 50m here and there. No real time losses more than 20 seconds (I missed #5, just ran straight past it, felt funny in relation to the two gullies). Did lose a minute on the 2nd long leg to Macey who went straight. I should have trusted my terrain running a bit more!

Running warm up/down 5:00 [2]
