Road cycling 2:12:00 [3] 50.3 km (2:37 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Around the river, meeting Noel at EF. Showers were forecast but appeared to have gone as I went through Canning Bridge and Applecross, but then a heavy downpour saturated me as I went past Pt Walter, then another one got us just after meeting so we sheltered at Zephyr for a while. It seemed to clear up, but just after starting again another heavy one came through, but after Port Beach it stayed dry.

SW'ly for a change - hard work, with the rain as well, to Freo, but very fast from there to home. Even though I knew there'd be loads of sand and road grit on the chain, the bike goes very smoothly when wet.

Had a hot bath afterwards to warm up again.

Orienteering race 37:52 [4] 2.9 km (13:03 / km)
ahr:129 max:152 shoes: Inov8 Arctic Claw

H4 course at Calophylla State League. GPS 3.9. Slow start and wide to 1, losing 1 minute. Went to the wrong, higher rocks at 3, losing another 30 secs. Repeated this at 5 and 6, another half and one minute down. Biggest mistake was 7-8 where I went North instead of West and followed the wrong clearings before eventually relocating - 4 mins. Another 2 mins at 9 where I got to the area fast but was put off by someone standing and scratching their head (but turns out they were actually at my control) so I went off to explore the next two gullies. Way too low at 10, but splits show I only lost 1 min - it was definitely closer to 2 so everyone else must have done this leg badly. Even lost a minute and a half on the unusally long (400m) navigation leg to the finish across some very vague and featureless terrain. Need to check the compass more often.

This event was meant to be long distance, so why was the winning time 25 minutes?
