I don't log walking as I do so much of it when working. However, thought I would just make a list of the longer walks in Tasmania over the past 10 days:

7 Apr (pm) - Hobart: Sandy Bay to Salamanca & back via Battery Point (3km)
8 Apr (am) - Sandy Bay to Hobart centre via Battery Point & Docks & back (4km)
8 Apr (pm) - Organ Pipes walk at Mt Wellington (3km)
9 Apr (am) - Fluted Cape walk at Bruny Island (6km)
9 Apr (pm) - Sandy Bay to Salamanca & back (3km)
15 Apr (am) - Wineglass Bay at Freycinet, returning via the Hazards (12km)
16 Apr (am) - Mt Brown & Crescent Beach from Remarkable Cave (near Port Arthur - 10km)
17 Apr (pm) - Battery Point to Queens Domain via Salamanca and Docks & back(5km).

Finally, not walks at all, but must give these honourable mentions: - fantastic cruise alongside the Bruny Island cliffs. Saw sea eagles, albatross, seals, blowholes, sea caves and stacks, and lots of other things. Entertaining commentary, first class seamanship, lots of photos & memories. - excellent 2hr lunch on our way to Hobart airport - a great way to finish the holiday!

PS Didn't see a single boot camper in Tassie - is it a personal trainer-free zone I wonder?

Orienteering race 41:20 [4] ***** 4.4 km (9:24 / km)
spiked:12/15c shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw 330

Easily the best area and course of the 3 days, and my best run. Stuffed the first control, losing a minute, and expected Ernst (Swiss) starting behind to catch me, but apparently he made a very similar mistake to me. Eventually he came up the finish chute with HM (starting 6 behind me again) about 30 secs after I finished. However, my time was good enough for 3rd, and 3rd overall.

Orienteering race 44:29 [4] *** 4.9 km (9:05 / km)
spiked:6/9c shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw 330

Easter day 2 - not the best course I've ever seen, barely more difficult than a M12 course, but I still lost a couple of minutes. Started 6 minutes before HM and he ran up the finish chute just after I downloaded. Only 5th today, but moved up to 3rd overall.
