Orienteering race 17:24  2.5 km (6:58 / km)
shoes: X-Talon 190
Sprint race in Melbourne, 5th place behind 4 Victorian juniors. Heavy showers just before I started, and a couple of others during the race, also very cold. I picked the best route to 2 and was in the lead there, but lost it after 3 where I couldn't work out the route to 4 and stopped for a good 20 seconds. Finally realised I had to go out of the school, cross a road and head into a park opposite. From there it was into an entirely different school then back across the park into the original school. This was where I made another blue on 9-10 using the wrong entrance and running into a dead end. Lost a few more seconds choosing the longest route to 17. Tricky little course and fun event despite (or because of?) the rain.
