Note

There appears to be a defect with the SportIdent units used today.

I punched control 9 (79) at 14:09:36 precisely, which was confirmed with beeps and red flashing lights on the unit. You can see this clearly on my GPS track.
I was surprised to find that this punch was not recorded on my stick upon download at the finish. I remember clearly punching the correct control. As the Bendigo units turn off automatically after 5 minutes it did take a while to register. In fact, I may have even pulled the stick out fractionally before it beeped and flashed. For a moment I thought of putting it back in, but as the unit had beeped and flashed correctly there was no need.

I would be very interested to see if my punch was recorded on the unit.
I understand that it is the competitor's responsibility to leave the stick in for long enough, but when you get both signals (flashes and beeps) from the unit that it has been recorded, then the fault must be directed back to the SportIdent system.

I have heard of this happening to others before, but now I know for a fact that it is a SportIdent issue.

I think that this needs to be brought to the attention of the OA Technical Committee so that the OA rules can be adapted to check control units. Previously I thought that this was not necessary, but now I am convinced that the error is with SportIdent and not the competitor.

Bendigo Rocks #1
Korong Spur
Course 1



Good friendly courses today from Tony and Alison Radford on a magnificent map. A very enjoyable day in the sunshine and well worth the long drive.

Thanks for the re-instatement of my result.

My groin and leg injuries did not bother me today. Hopefully I have been able to shake them off now.

Note

Physio appointment at Melbourne Sports Medical Centre.

My injury seems to be muscle related, rather than anything structural.
Running is ok for a short while, but then my left hip and upper leg tighten up.

We found a couple of spots where the glutes meet the pelvis which were quite sore to massage. I'm now working on these with the tennis ball and massage a few times a day to see if they loosen up.

7 AM

Running 54:48 intensity: (51 @0) + (25:28 @1) + (10:32 @2) + (17:33 @3) + (24 @4) 7.22 km (7:35 / km) +45m 7:21 / km
ahr:106 max:150

I managed to run 15-20 minutes without tightening up, including a couple of hills and a few surges.
Walking brought on a small stretch in my left hip flexor, but not as bad as previous days.

After physio massage and a few hours rest at work, I felt quite strong.

Victorian Autumn Series 2
Mount Lofty
Course 1



I tried to run to see if my injured left hip had improved. It was ok enough to jog, but I couldn't really race hard, or push through the rougher terrain with anything more than a slow jog. My result reflected this.

My injury is not any worse, but not much better yet either.

I'm going to back to the physio on Tuesday to see if they can pinpoint the problem.
