Orienteering race 27:08 [4] 1.9 km (14:17 / km)
ahr:122 max:151 shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230

Short course at Canning Vale College NavDash. Was a mispunch because I forgot to punch the control at the map change. Lost time at 7, scratching my head because there was a fence and closed gate when the map didn't show the fence, lost 50 seconds here. Before that I was only 3 secs behind the leader (tR and HdP don't count). Started the maze very slowly, starting off the long way to 12 before correcting, then taking 20 secs to work out how to get to 13. Also took an extra 20 secs going the long way to 20. Made a real mess of 23 and raced around the central part of the school like a headless chook for 5 minutes on a 1 min leg. Didn't see the best route to 26 and took a minute longer way around, including going to the wrong side of the gap where I backtracked because with a closer look the tiny bit of fence there looked impassable on the map (turns out it wasn't). Without the missed control and the mistakes I should have beaten the other old farts, except possibly not Noel.

GPS 3.33kms

Orienteering 27:00 [3] 2.7 km (10:00 / km)
ahr:133 max:146 shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230

Long course at Canning Vale. The download produced garbage, and my splits have disappeared from the AP list. Eventor shows MP, but don't know why. Was slow, with R achilles pain coming on halfway through the first loop, but was fairly clean until 23 in the second loop, where the map wasn't legible (see tRicky's log). Slowed further from there, also took what I suspect is a slow route from 28-29.

GPS 3.58kms, only marginally longer than my poor Short course run.

Road cycling 2:05:00 [3] 47.4 km (2:38 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Around the river, with Noel from East Freo.

Yesterday's rat was still there, but looked like a few pelotons had gone over it. Didn't see any others, but there was a group of FROGS gathering at the Narrows car park for their weekly ritual.

Road cycling 3:02:00 [3] 70.5 km (2:35 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Two rivers ride. Saw another dead rat on the freeway path - maybe there's a virus running through the South Perth rat population? Also saw dolphins at Canning Bridge for the second time this week, and an old guy going for a swim just south of there.

Road cycling 2:25:00 [3] 54.7 km (2:39 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Around the river including Mt Henry, strong Westerly. Somewhere along the way a long thread got caught up in my front wheel, eventually noticed it going through Subi and stopped to remove it. Had to take the wheel off and unwind it from the skewer.
