9 AM

Real Orienteering race 1:05:00 [3] *** 6.5 km (10:00 / km) +290m 8:11 / km
spiked:8/11c shoes: Asics Fuji Trabuco 2 (?)

By day three it was clear I wasnt likely to make up ground. 'Despite other trying hard to help me, I came 14th today, just for variety, ending up 13th overall. Not fit enough, not trim enough. Warnings for M60.
This map was the toughest of the three day. Started 2 minutes after Geoff Peel. Met at the end of the first leg (it was long). Had a fun match race for the next 6 controls. Again took the wrong route choice, then messed up 4. Pulled away on the long climb out of the rock towards 8. I think I also made the wrong route choice on 9. Then finally muffed the second last control in view of the finish. Such is life.
Lessons-
Not fast enough on the flat and downhill.
Didn;t understand the route choices on unfamiliar terrain.

Easter Day 2 Prossers Reef
Spiked each control today, but made a meal of the route choices. I started assuming the undergrowth would be like the previous day but quickly realised it was a fair bit slower. So I took the wide route for leg six. The locals all knew that the terrain in the flatter areas was faster than the lead up to the leg. I lost a couple of minutes there. I believe I also slowed in the latter part of the race or rather didn;t speed up as much as the competition. 13th again.

Real Orienteering race 59:59 [4] *** 5.97 km (10:03 / km) +210m 8:33 / km
spiked:18/19c shoes: Asics Fuji Trabuco 2 (?)

Easter Day 1. Carwell's Labrynth
Not really technical terrain, but at times fast running of the ground was level. Slow in the ups and downs. I was somewhere at about 6th until after the 6th control. From that point it appears I didn't speed up compared with the competition. And then I lost 4 minutes on 11, a pretty easy control. Just shows what happens when the brain is oxygen starved. Finished 13th.
