Came down with a cold this morning, just as we were heading off to Margs for the week.

Road cycling 2:45:00 [3] 59.4 km (2:47 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Around the river including Mt Henry. On a whim, and because I was in no particular hurry, I followed the river paths around Heathcote and Majestic. Then in the same vein at Point Walter and on to the (not very good) path above Blackwall Reach. Continued to Blackwall Reach Parade, then up the 'Mur de Braunton' which more than made up for missing my usual Majestic and Stock Rd climbs.

With a stiff NEly blowing, I had to work hard up the coast and all the way home.

Almost 40,000kms on the Beemer, and 7,500kms so far this year - should make it to 10k easily.

Orienteering race 1:00:20 [4] 3.7 km (16:18 / km) +175m 13:11 / km
ahr:122 max:153 shoes: X-Talon 190

State Long Champs at Abercorn Rd. GPS 4.73km, 200m climb. Took longer and safer routes to 1 and 2, then more direct and faster going to 3 and 4. Slight error at 4 going up the wrong creek for 30m before realising and correcting. 5 was an uphill slog, but made sure of the approach - others lost a fair bit of time here. From 5 to the finish was slow, but I was careful again, and pulled up from 6th place on the course at 4 to 2nd at the finish - ahead of M65s again. Tough but very enjoyable course - reminded me of days in the 80s at places like JFNP, Kalamunda, Walyunga and Radnor.
