Running (SR - Mosman Park) 47:32 [3] 7.18 km (6:37 / km) +135m 6:03 / km
ahr:163 max:179 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

This was a night run with Wil

Had said I wanted 6-7 and to take it reasonable and we did just a bit more than that and to be fair I probably had a bit more to give but was cruising.

Lovely night for it and beat the rain just which was great. The course was really nice a bit of everything, climb, bushland, parks, alleyways was actually a really enjoyable and challenging course. I think clearable at 4:30-5mins/km we missed 6 controls and was back 2 mins 30 late.

Legs feeling a bit tight - see if I ride tomorrow or not!

Road Bike (Commute to work) 26:51 [3] 7.4 km (16.5 kph) +99m
ahr:142 max:164 shoes: Giro Privateer

Took it nice and easy for first ride back in - certainly could feel the lack of bike/strength on the kings park hill.

Interesting question came into my mind:
When you are in dedicated bike lane - (putting aside self preservation) when does a bus entering a bus bay have right of way.

Reason I ask - I certainly could have gone past a bus on the left on a downhill but i suspected at some point it would duck into a stop - so I didnt try. but I could have easily gone past it on the left in the bike lane.... self preservation obviously dictates no. but had I been next to the bus when it needs to go into the bus stop who has right of way.

In my mind I am in a dedicated lane and if I am next to the bus I would have right of way even though it would be undertaking? rare scenario though that you can go faster than a bus and undertake it.

Road Bike (Commute to Home) 24:06 [3] 7.67 km (19.1 kph) +65m
ahr:143 max:160 shoes: Giro Privateer

Ride home - slightly different route with a work colleague.

Nothing really to report - pretty lacklustre effort.

Orienteering (Ultra Sprint - Long 3) 10:59 [3] 1.7 km (6:28 / km) +4m 6:23 / km
ahr:170 max:182 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Only doing the write-up on first entry.

Really loved this concept/course type - found it really enjoyable - felt sorry for Ricky with the internal numbers being different to the labels, but other than that exceptionally well executed. Hope there is some more of these in the future!

Was wearing gopro for tash so she can do some video editing fun post this event - however, imagine there will be a need to speed up some of the footage! also meant I was constantly checking I wasnt making a muppet of my directions - so reasonably sure I was pretty clean - possible mispunch on course 3 and almost got one on course 2. but I think I came out clean - will know later I suppose.

Good to see the community again after only getting to the bush once this year. Will was happy with Clementine for the most part but on the third course which I was running in proximity of Tash I went past him and he wailed. I then had to put in a conscious effort to finish faster and had to break away from Tash... who to be honest had kept me pretty honest over the first few controls of that course - even when I took a better route she was right there with me.

Shins feeling a bit sore on the third run so might have been good for me to only ahve done the 1 run this week.

Running (SR - Kings Park Score) 45:17 [3] 6.95 km (6:31 / km) +105m 6:03 / km
ahr:167 max:185 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Went for an early lunch run with Wil and revisited the KP score course - really enjoyable. I found that we did it in the opposite direction that I did last time - missed one control at end which arguably could have got - but will be close if I was under time limit - if im over should have got it.

Covered more ground than last time and generally felt better even though fair bit of walking. Some light chaffing sadly and a few niggles.

Was really good to catch up with Wil and be out for a run though.

Did some app testing we are still hitting some hurdles around the 5-10 minute mark but confident once thats resolved the app should come to completion pretty quickly after that.

I think regardless this attempt should be the one on the leaderboard for me as time was less, distance was more and I think at worst score is the same if not slightly better.

*edit - 25s faster than last attempt, and sadly 45:01 so lost 10 points - wouldve been worth getting the control near the start. oh well.

Running (SR - Kings Park) 36:18 [3] 5.58 km (6:30 / km) +74m 6:06 / km
ahr:165 max:177 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Revisited the KP Line course - really enjoyed it. Managed to trim 5 minutes off prior time and 70m off the distance.

The first km was almost a 5min km was at 5:04 at 800m but still found myself walking before the 2km mark - found running with my phone in my back pocket is such a distraction.

App testing had some progress but still limited.

Generally a good run - like the course it has a bit of everything a few minor changes I think I can get it down to 5.5km. Finished the last km pretty strongly but know I have more to give.

Even though I am only doing 1 run a week - can feel my feet, ankle and shins all starting their typical complaints. guess I should do some stretching.

Was pretty busy in the park which was nice to see.
