Orienteering race 39:00 
OY at Wivenhoe common. hot and steamy. this event was meant to be a sprint at mt coottha gardens until that event got canned due to ridiculous covid restrictions. Even the walk to the start was a reminder that its still too early for bush events.
The map has had a burn and enough recent rain to thicken the veg up nicely. some of it even had post burn deadfall to make it really fun. The rocks around the edges were still good and tricky, and nothing grows there anyway. and the green made the route choices count more. I had a pretty steady run until ~8 - 10 where I started catching Andy, so started working a bit harder. blew up a bit on the next decent climb to 13 and wasn't too great for the last couple in the bush. just overheated. Still, beat a few people that I wouldn't normally (ever) expect to, so I'll take that.
My strapping tape took a big chunk of skin from underneath my heel with it. It hurts.
