Orienteering race 37:12 [5] *** 4.28 km (8:42 / km) +120m 7:38 / km
spiked:13/15c shoes: Inov8 Orocs

SA Champs Middle - Grabouw Eikenhof Dam
Had a pretty decent race. Lost about 30sec on #6 - I came around the south of the hill and the control was further around and higher than I expected. The whole area in the control circle didn't look how I expected. I had another problem with visualization in the circle on #8 (lost 50sec), I was also starting to get pretty tired so not thinking straight by then. Caught sight of Tania on the way to #11 so that spurred me on for the rest of the course.
So quite a clean race, but not moving fast. Barely felt my back which was great.
Ended up 2nd, behind Steph with Jess 3rd. Paul ran 29:55.

While I don't really enjoy the way the start times were done, it added some new pressures which were quite interesting - having Christie 2 minutes behind me definitely played on my mind.

Walked up to Fotheringham with my dad, then I picked up the pace passed Royal Oak, Sasol Wychwood and Bishop Bavin with a nice chilled km to finish off. Felt comfortable.

Put out controls for WitsOC training - Dice-O'.
Been struggling with my lower back (left side) while sitting today - I think I hurt it when I fell off on Sunday. Felt okay (the best it had felt all day) after the run.

Short jog (5mins) after a walk with my dad to get an idea of how the body is doing. Lower back is sore, neck and arm are stiff.
