H1 with Tash.
Course distance apparently 8.9 we did 9.43 including the walk to the triangle and a small addition at the end - and fells abit right because we were dead on target all day. in fact the only place we did more distance was 8-9 for good reason - we went along the fence!
Let Tash lead out most of the way so she could get her nav practice in - she was bang on pretty much the whole way - I relaxed and just naved off map because of this - which was good practice for me.
Looking back over the map cant see any point where I think we could have improved massively as we pretty much spiked every point - Was a good map lots of open space and features to nav by so generally stayed pretty much where we wanted to be.
Bit of a canter to finish but nothing excessive over all a pretty good time given it was all walked and hopefully Tash feeling more comfortable with H1 - was good going out and doing it with her though - I had fun! *cheers Tash*.
Em's cake was demolished before I got back - so hopefully it was as tasty as it looked - feel free to let me know if you had it and it was bad/good/otherwise (it was the chocolate/coconut one).
Side notes - Polly pulled out slacker!, Got my 9th place badge for previous rogaine tehee!, and still feeling sick - stomach about 90% and the niggle of a flu/cold subsiding hopefully back to 100% tomorrow.
Oh definitely lost a few KG's since my last outing - my back pack straps were super lose and even after I had tightened them up when it came to the jog for the last two points it was flying around everywhere!
Think I am going to have to ditch the pack soon and run one of these races and see if I can get a reasonable time!
