Orienteering race 26:57 [3] 4.6 km (5:52 / km)

NOL spriddle at Aranda. Fun course, and great format for the area. (I think our course was probably the best use of the area - the guys seemed to get a bit more dead running). No legs today and very little nav brain.
Cold running today, and very happy to run before the weather turned completely awful.

Orienteering race 2:31:12 [4] 12.5 km (12:06 / km) +800m 9:10 / km

NOL ultralong. this was going to be a big day out and I knew I was totally underprepared. Figured I'd just cruise around at a comfortable pace and hope that got me close enough to the finish before the suffering kicked in.
The first half was good. Got dropped by Tash and Bun after 3 controls, but then somehow ended up ahead of them, but they ran away again.
Had a bit of trouble getting stuck in the cliffs on the control after the second common control, and was getting pretty tired at the end of the first loop.
The second loop was a bit of a dodgy start. lost heaps of time on 2, and a bit more on 3. got my act together after that, but still had a bit of trouble in a few more circles. adductors started cramping on the climb up to the first pivot - had two gels then. calves and adductors continued to complain to the finish, but first proper cramp hit in the finish chute.
Very tired at the finish, but made it around better than expected.

Running 48:00 [3]

city run. hammies pretty sore and it was very ploddy. new shoes got a bit tight in the toe box and gave me pins and needles in the balls of my feet, so had to walk to get the circulation back a few times on the way home.
