Orienteering 1:00:00 [3]

Running the orienteering training at Pittwater. Zali and I spend an hour putting out controls. Better than Jon who took 2.5 hours to put out his share - mostly because he hung two flags in what he realised was the wrong spot, but it was so wrong when he went to move them he spent AN HOUR not being able to find them!!
We eventually found them when we picked up everything.

Orienteering 58:00 [3]

Hot fun race at Weymouth (north coast, near Bridport).
Due to 5 minute mistake in dunes, only beat Zali by 5 seconds!! cost me $7 in splitscash anyway. And also my win was dubious given I used an unmarked gate to pass through uncrossable fence into a playground. Zali used the correct gate which was further along.

rested ankle - didn't want to miss sunday. Also course was 9.8k so probably dodge a bullet!

Orienteering 1:01:00 [3]

Nght race at trevallyn. pretty hard night race - through some very steep and rough terrain. rolled my ankle on a path (sheesh!) going to number 4 - was trying to keep up with the faster boys so I thought my race was over and started to walk home, but it felt better after a bit and I decided if I was going to have to sit out the rest of the weekend I mayaswell finish this race off. so I did and it was good fun.

actually had a tail wind to work which was a nice change - was very sluggish though due to not having cycled for ages. progress on new bike lane is good.

cycling 1:00:00 [3]

very slow slog home in headwind. just managed to overtake the walkers.

middle distance race at Springvale. Middle distance only for the elites though! I didn't make many mistakes and slogged through the thick forest. it was physically tough going. foot/ankle sore afterwards. w

Orienteering 42:00 [3]

Night event waverly. didn't have my glasses so had to use magnifier thing which wasn't a great solution with the reflected light. terrain was soooo tricky - was impossible to tell what was a track, what was a line of cliffs. fun though.

Orienteering 22:00 [3] 3.0 km (7:20 / km)

super fun series of 1k races at bellerive fort. avoided the torrential rain which was a bonus but lost time rebagging my map between legs. so fun though. not too expensive splits-cash wise.

Thursday Jan 11, 2018 #

Orienteering 35:06 [3]

Summer Cup middle distance at tolosa. it was steep so I was sluggish on the hills. caught jett up as he blew the first control but then had a ding-dong battle the rest of the way. He ended up beating me 13 out of 23 splits, including one where he just ran right past me and cooly looked across at me and said 'one dollar' then shot off ahead. so rude. I had the last laugh with a 7 minute win, although maybe I didn't as I owe him $13 in splits cash. hmmph.
