Real Orienteering race 48:55 [4] ***** 3.79 km (12:54 / km) +160m 10:39 / km
spiked:14/16c shoes: Salamon Blue

Oz Middle.
This terrain is really well mapped. Made sense much of the time. By the six control I was feeling confident and started to imagine an error free run. Stuffed up the 7th, losing three minutes. Was careful after that. One more error lost me maybe a minute. Was reasonably satisfied with the result until i realised that that error on number 7 cost me a drop in the 2016 ranking from 10th to 11th. Top ten ranking had been my objective for 2016. Early NY resolution for 2017- manage the various tendon issues I have to allow better training. And make sure more of the training is in the right sort of terrain. And map more quality areas to make that training easier for others.

Real Orienteering race 1:11:51 [4] ***** 6.73 km (10:41 / km) +160m 9:33 / km
spiked:8/11c shoes: Salamon Blue

Oz Long.
A very disappointing performance. Three errors might have been par for the day, except that one was a 13 minute error. I think that dropped me from 7th to 13th. Looking at the GPS now I can't understand how I pulled up so short from the control and waster time looking. I was dead on the red line. Should have just kept on the red line and allowed my self to be caught be the track behind the control if I went past. I realised today that red line makes a lot of sense in this country. Its not that steep and there is rough stuff everywhere.

shoes: ASIC Kayano green/white

Climbed to the bluff above the Carnarvon Gorge camp site. The result was a revelation as to how large this Central Queensland sandstone belt is and how many cliffs there are across it.

Walking 7:00:00 [2]
shoes: ASIC Kayano green/white

Tried to walk all the sights in one day at Carnarvon Gorge. It would have been feasible but for the plantar fasciitis. Called it quits leaving out the lookout walk. Its a very spectacular area, well worth the long drive (10 hours) from Tweed Heads where we were staying beforehand.
