Orienteering 54:15 [3] 3.9 km (13:55 / km)

Rowdy Flat. Best race of the carnival. Clearly swimming through a dark tunnel of cold water the night before is good race preparation. Didn't do very well at Rowdy at Vic Champs, so was happy to have a better run this time. Lost it a little coming into 4 when things stopped making sense close to the circle, but relocated off a patch of blackberries. Out and around to 9, mistakenly going through the creek. Fell over trying to take the ford at speed the first time and was thankful for waterproof maps. Squelched around the rest of the course. Took the wrong track from a junction to 14 - rookie error. Got bitten by a bull ant on the way to the last control. Mustn't have been moving that quickly! Felt pretty good running and enjoyed the feeling :)

Orienteering 1:08:24 [3] 5.6 km (12:13 / km)

Kangaroo Crossing. Had heard someone say earlier in the week over the loudspeaker that the green and steep parts of the map hadn't been used - then picked up the map to find the entire thing green. Missed on 2 but relocated. Searching too far up the gully for 4 and just stumbled upon it. Went up and over and around the track to 8 (same as I did on a similar route at Vic Champs - maybe I need to HTFU).

Orienteering 1:25:21 [3] 6.2 km (13:46 / km)

Barambogie North. Must have been a bit dehydrated and woke up in the night with a killer headache. Wasn't feeling too great in the morning so took it very easy. Mostly walked the long legs. Went out right to 1 (past 2). Going slowly so navigation was pretty clean. Slight miss on 8, and went too far right on 12.

Orienteering 58:45 [3] 6.4 km (9:11 / km)

Magenta. Feeling the heat. Didn't quite read the detail at 5. Then took the long route around to 6. OK until I went 13-15 (got distracted by a line of people heading there and thought my compass must have been off - oops).

Riding 1:18:20 [3] 31.3 km (2:30 / km)

It's a Christmas miracle - I actually overtook someone! Reverse juvey. Took advantage of some guy cracking as we turned into Diamond Hill Rd at the end. Pushed a bit harder at the end to keep in front of him and his mate. I hope he wasn't too upset at being passed by a girl on an antique Dodsun.
