MTB Orienteering race (Turner Hill) 1:32:08 [4] 26.2 km (3:31 / km)

Course 2. Given a dud hint before the start, so chose the good track around rather than the new, soft, uphill, shorter track - 6.73km to no. 1 (23.20). Saw Andre Morkel coming out of it and it was deja vue all over again: like at Aquinas I had difficulty passing him, got past 3 times but blew it each time. Firstly overshot 2, didn't see it; then chose to go left to no. 4, but that put me on the wrong single track, so had to climb to the top and back down again; then missed the way in to 7 and rode up the power line track at the back. the corrugations loosened the seatpost and by the end it was just about like riding a BMX in the circus. Still, a win is a win.

Teering race (Scotch) 18:26 [4] *** 4.0 km (4:37 / km)
spiked:26/26c shoes: ASICS DS Trainer

Slow after another cold enforced taper, but at least I could read the map as a result. 7th, a bit further down than I'm comfortable with. Sten nearly handed 6th to me but held on by 8 seconds. Very good win by Oscar.

slept:8.0 (sick)

Really wanted to do Floreat before the May rains set in, but woke up with a stuffed nose, so it looks like that cold has arrived (or returned) - and I can't blame Aoife for it!

Rescued my GPS track - Sportstracks "lost" it. Was able to convert the Garmin Training Centre file .tcx into a .gpx using
The GPS tracks on RouteGadget ( are pretty funny - not just mine!
