Could and should have gone harder it was all flat around the harbour... lots of people getting in the way though!

Weirdly my left shoulder was hurting :(

Also wondering how my ankle/foot soreness will pull up - have been considering a dr visit for it :( < hence totally cool idea going for run teehee.

Orienteering race (Calophylla - MDC) 1:11:04 [4] 5.85 km (12:09 / km) +285m 9:46 / km
ahr:165 max:184 18c shoes: Brooks Glycerin 12

So unfit - heart rate was sitting 95-100 in car and walking to start 140 like wtf... in fairness uphill but still thats terrible!

Bad start - hit the first river bed going for 1 and got confused quickly corrected and chuckled. Promptly went onto number 2 and failed to see the green and messed it up briefly too - what a muppet!

3-4-5-6 all went reasonably well (from memory) however the leg to 7 I drifted north and misjudged my distance - didn't really pay attention to the map and hit somewhere in between 7 and 8 - saw ricky glide past as well as well everyone else - which was annoying - went back but was completely baffled so went to find 8 - found 8 and returned to 7 from there. would have lost a good 10 minutes here I think and also annoyingly I remember seeing the rocky spur and thinking I should check that on the map - wish I had would have been a dead giveaway!

Leg 8 was obviously pretty straight forward, and then nailed 9 - 10 even though they were slow because I had tried to run 8 when I should have just gone normal pace. Back to 11 - which was 7 from a different angle - I managed to slip (my new shoes don't have great grip!) and fell over and slide my ankle straight into a rock crevice and rolled it same time - was very painful and I limped my way into 11.

over to 12 slow and steady as it was a concerning leg but hit it pretty nicely. Then to 13 - climb was a bit annoying but hit it smack on. Back to 14 which is 11 and 7 - avoided the rocks and swung a bit east to go around faster which I did but got to the base and thought - where the hell am I - was just a bit short and got that sorted out pretty quick smart.

15-16 was very smooth, 17 was a tad tricky but got it within a reasonable time - then made a muppet of 18 as I saw a control and ran to it was the one at the end of the road instead of 18! balh, 18 was an easy find from there and a semi fast finish.

Aiming for sub 1 hr - didn't quite get there but - had I not messed up the nav would have got it.

Average pace vs last year though was much better so I will claim that - and the new shoes do feel more springing and I was tending to get places sooner so will have to adjust my distance guesses.

Anyway off to sydney for a month now so see if I can improve whilst away... cause that will totally happen! :P

Orienteering race (Jorgensen Park) 56:04 [4] 4.5 km (12:28 / km) +316m 9:13 / km
ahr:163 max:184 15c shoes: Brooks Glycerin 12

So first time doing anything for quite a number of weeks! - was quite slow :( oh well fitness require eh.

Leg 1 was fine went via the bush when the faster guys ran around and ended up arriving not far behind them.

Leg 2 - getting back to path was a tad tricky but once there went along nicely until and appropriate attack point - attacked into the burnt out area and hit the deck very quickly - might have been old fence or #blame the new shoes not having grip. either way went down hard and somthing sliced my right hand ring finger nicely and soon the whole finger was a nice bright red :(
Went off on wrong angle and lost time getting myself sorted. Eventually got to point hand and arm throbbing.

Leg 3 - I enjoyed this leg - was slow as I was being a princess but found it nicely.

Leg 4 - No problems probably slower than it could/should have been

Leg 5 - still concerning myself with throbbing hand and dripping blood, but kinda got back into game here, but definitely taking easy option on route. I came out exactly where I wanted too - funny thing is I stood about the point for ages confirming I was where I wanted to be!

Leg 6 - Blah uphill - distracted by another point but nothing too bad - just yuk uphill.

Leg 7 - nice and easy and straight to point - got some water to get rid of blood taste #thankgod!

Leg 8 - opted for the second track then to highpoint and thought I would see it from there. went to plan until that point - but I couldn't see point so just went until I hit fairway - got really confused ran around like a headless chook, then came back to area - eventually me and one other spot the hidden control with just the box above the ground - not soo keen on the placement of this!!!!

Leg 9 - Silly mistake ran past thick bush and saw control to my right and just went for it - completely put aside - got to t-junction or distance... er was silly and realised when i was on my way in to the wrong control. Otherwise got it easy.

Leg 10 - Was where I expected.

Leg 11 - Same - starting to feel tired and I hadnt been working hard compared to how I have felt in past :( so unfit.

Leg 12 / 13 very straight forward.

Leg 14 - completely ran past it scratched head, grazed on the lush pastures then realised my mistake.

Leg 15 - hesitated a lot but got it

Finish - tbh was over it felt great being out there - but wasn't a fluid session for me, whereas normally I am slow but feel flogged and having had a good run - today didn't happen - new shoes slipped around a lot so going to have to heel lock the laces and stacking it early and having arm/hand trobb the whole way massively took me out of the mental space.

I feel I could have comfortably trimmed 10 minutes off it if I went and ran it again. :(

Oh well - was a beautiful day at least!

Mountain Biking (Curtin) 1:44:04 [2] 6.36 km (3.7 kph) +60m
ahr:123 max:155 shoes: Giro Privateer

Pootled around the campus taking photos of the control sites with Paul.

Managed to ride down a few stairs was fun... my bike desperately needs a clean/lube/service it sounds horrible!

Carrying the control marker with the cut on my finger was a pain in the ass!
