Orienteering 53:40 [3] 7.5 km (7:09 / km)
(sick) shoes: Inov8 X Talon

Another sensational Malmalling day!
Had a bad start - lost 2.5min on the first control, a bit far left then went up the hill to relocate, lost another 2 on number 2 and Kellie caught me (4min) here. Quite annoyed with myself as 2 was a pivot control and when I came back later I am certain I could see the control from the first rock I stood on the first time I was looking for 2 (edit - GPS says NO). 3-5 were fun controls and I did them well, from there it was a lot of fast running and I did not have the ability to do that. Managed to hold off Kellie until 10 as I was clean in all the circles and she would drop off at each control then catch me up (on the longer legs). Rachel stromed past us both at 9 and disappeared into the sunset pretty quickly. 10-11 was uphill and that was it for me..
Surprised that my finish split did not look so bad as I walked it, apparently others got lost finding the finish banner.

Breathing not as bad afterwards as yesterday - I think that I just was not running at all today.

Orienteering 40:55 [3] 5.6 km (7:18 / km)
(sick) shoes: Inov8 X Talon

I love Malmalling! - that's all I could think of the whole way around this course.
Good fun but again very underpowered and no ability to go up hill. No major problems, a bit slow/cautious on 7 moving from attackpoint to control through blackboys, wobbly on 9 (avoiding the hill), high into 11, went to wrong last control being lazy and again avoiding climb.

Lots of breathing problems after.

Run 19:23 [3] 3.5 km (5:32 / km)
(sick) shoes: Saucony Omni

Richard & Nicole's directly to Stickybeak's playground. Needed a walk part way up the dual carriageway, good spot to stop as there were a couple of spider orchids I may have missed otherwise. Its a bit sad when you can't keep up with someone who's just completed 30 hours travel from the other side of the world...

King's Park beautiful of course!
