Run warm up/down 5:00 [2]
shoes: Brooks Cascadia 4

Orienteering race (Lively's Bog SILVA NOL) 1:31:10 [4] **** 12.0 km (7:36 / km) +295m 6:46 / km
spiked:16/20c shoes: Brooks Cascadia 4

Went out fairly determined and tried to set a fast pace from start. Given current lack of fitness this turns out to be fairly normal pace for most of the field, but it felt fast. Little uncertainty in first few controls but no real issues and settled into some good orienteering. Picked Pacque up on the way to first control, so had company around the whole way. Then picked up Geoff Lawford too. Was trying to run hard but wasnt even getting close to dropping them. Led for the most part until about 3km to go, took a less than optimal route choice (due to need to avoid a climb that should have taken on) and lost time getting ciaght in some crap. Spent next few controls trying to catch back up to Geoff but proved pretty hard since I couldnt go much faster. Really really struggled last 1-2km into the finish. Suprised most of the field didnt run quicker.

Orienteering race (Uni Tas Launy sprint) 14:51 [5] **** 3.0 km (4:57 / km) +40m 4:38 / km
shoes: Brooks Racer ST happy yelow

Never felt real good in the map today, continually battled to keep on top of the map. think the yellow on the map had something to do with it, apart from being a fairly complex little map in parts. pretty happy with the way i orienteered until near the end, losing about 5s, and 10-15s on two legs right near the end. apart from that I was just too slow.

some juniors ran well, both Josh and Max got me.

afternoon jog having driven back from Strahan to Launceston. Jogged from caravan park to Cataract Gorge and back. Was looking really picturesque. Even ran into fel and Jules on a romantic walk.

saw the scariest looking insect I have ever seen. Told it was a "grasshopper", absolute crap i reckon.
