Orienteering (Belfast CC: Brown) 1:07:40 [5] *** 8.71 km (7:46 / km) +170m 7:05 / km
ahr:175 max:187 spiked:14/17c shoes: Saloman SpeedCross

Much better race. I enjoyed it a lot. There was quite a bit of slow trudging through marsh and long grass, which sort of suits me. Went back to my baseplate and it worked really well.
I was leading the S. Africans until the 2nd last control, where I lost 3 min to Gary. It was one of our sub-terrainian pits. I found the pit directly north of it and then buggered around in the grass for 3 min trying to find it. The Brit, Oleg wasted 11 min, so it could have been worse for me.
Orienteered pretty well, but felt slow most of the time.
Quickest time was Jon, cruising in at 48 min. I'm hoping to have beaten some of the British women, but not holding my breath.

Orienteering race (Dullstroom Town) 1:09:28 [5] *** 7.76 km (8:57 / km) +115m 8:20 / km
ahr:175 spiked:23/27c shoes: Saloman SpeedCross

Race through the town of Dullstroom. With some Urban, forest and open rocky areas. Nice settting.
I had a poor race, stuffing up #9, almost missing #13, hunting for #16 and then generally running slowly. Had a sore throat in the morning and didn't feel 100%, heavy legs from the swim.
British O'squad was there with AP's Craney pulling off the win a good 22 min ahead of me. First S. African in took 60 min.

Swim 30:00 [2] 0.8 km (37:30 / km)

Lewton and I are aspiring tri-athletes, so we decided to see how far 600m is. Its pretty far when you swim as badly as me. We're aiming at Xterra lite in 2 weeks, but I'm pretty sure I'll be doing either the 12km trail run or the tri thing in a team, coz 600m in open water may kill me

Run (Caltex route) 31:26 [2] 6.0 km (5:14 / km) +146m 4:40 / km
ahr:147 max:173 shoes: Asics Gel Orient

Tough day, nobody signed up. We did have a visit from our founder, Mr Mulder, with his '97 student number. Also got most of the mould out of the fridge, so thats all the really urgent cleaning of the clubhouse done

Run (Bedfordview TT) 35:41 [4] 8.0 km (4:28 / km) +127m 4:08 / km
ahr:156 max:174 slept:6.0 shoes: Asics Gel Orient

4 sec faster than last week, but HR much lower. I couldn't get it above 165. Maybe the late night was to blame.
We had the street party and our O'club helped run a shot bar and sell hot dogs. And now we're up to 9 members!
