Run race ((orienteering)) 58:58  *** 7.5 km (7:52 / km) +310m 6:31 / km
That's more like it. As is often the case, I was fine the next day after having issues one day. Whilst I wouldn't say this was a particularly strong run, by my 2017 standards it was decent, and I ended out coming up on top in a small but decent M45 field. The flattish early stages were good for settling down before we headed into the big hills. A couple of ferocious climbs into 4 and 6 which I couldn't run much of (the priority on route choice for 6 was finding a route where the downhill part wasn't too steep to be runnable, but otherwise pretty good - ran all of 4-5 which I hadn't really expected to do (on an increasingly rare outing on a 1:15000 map, it's not as steep on the ground as it looks on the map). Saw Ruhi at 5 - wasn't entirely sure who had caught whom - and Steve Cooper at 7, and we were dicing for the rest of the course, although I got away a little at the end when Ruhi lost a bit more time than I did on the last control (my 15-seconder there was my only time loss of consequence on the course). Ruhi did 63, Greg Morcom 64, Steve 67.
This map has one of the more offbeat names in Australian orienteering. When it was first used for Easter 1990, apparently the instructions were to call the map "whatever it says on the gate", and so it was that that map was named Paradise No Shooting.
Some impressive runs by some of the juniors today - the best kilometre rates in the whole event (assisted by Simon's DNS) were by Ethan Penck in M16, and Joanna George in W20 (although she's eligible for W16). I'm guessing that Ethan beating Joanna by three seconds (same course) is worth a few bragging rights.
