Orienteering race (Relay) 25:20 [5] 2.5 km (10:08 / km) +70m 8:53 / km
shoes: New Balance 477

Did course A. Was in a team with Pieter Mulder and Steve Spottiswoode. I ran first. My distance judgment wasn't great in places and I made a few minor mistakes but otherwise I had a good run. Good way to finish a fun weekend.

Went out afterwards to do half of course C with Alex shadowing me. Legs were a bit sore though so walked some of it. We should definitely try and do this more often.

Orienteering race 1:13:00 [5] 4.8 km (15:12 / km) +145m 13:13 / km
shoes: New Balance 477

Long Distance event also at Lebanon South. I had a much better day apart from a few confusing moments off the map. The first 9 controls were slow but smooth. 10 went badly. I overshot it and stood on the side of a massive valley for a few moments before I realized that I wasn't on the map. It didn't help that there were about 6 other people even further off the map then I was. I took 14 far too slowly as I have a phobia of controls in pits. Navigation was much better, fitness didn't feel great. 8mins behind Salome so an improvement on yesterday

Orienteering race 39:02 [5] 2.6 km (15:01 / km)
ahr:161 11c shoes: New Balance 477

SA Champs at Lebanon South. First time I've been to Cape Town.
I had a bad run and made stupid mistakes. I started cautiously but still overshot 2. I battled with distance judgment to 4. My bearing to 7 went wrong so I had to relocate. Somehow I didn't ever see the road between 7 and 8 but got there eventually. I was annoyed after that so I went really slowly to make sure I nailed the last 3. Quite different orienteering in forest again. Salome won in 24 mins.

shoes: Adidas Response

At Wits. Did a star relay, grid thing on the field, compass and pacing and a map memory exercise. It was good to see some maps from Cape Town and we got a few tips about the terrain.

Running (School practice) 20:00 [3]
slept:8.0 shoes: New Balance 472

Did the usual warm up and loop. My legs were sore so I started slowly. They felt better as they warmed up so I picked up the pace towards the end.
