9 AM

Orienteering 12:17 [3] 1.24 km (9:54 / km) +18m 9:13 / km
shoes: VJ Sticky

VE with Aoife. Start triangle confusing again. Could not see path from where we picked up map, Nea also confused. Aoife overshot 1 ended up at 2 but came back without prompting, good to see she took notice of code (have previously had doubts). 3 and 5 strangely placed in middle of long grass patches but did not bother her. We 'cut the corner' to 9. She got 10 and 11 perfectly fine even though I was not sure. Ran a reasonable amount for a change.

Orienteering (Metroleague Mt Annan) 46:59 [3] 5.73 km (8:12 / km) +158m 7:12 / km
shoes: VJ Sticky

Usual Mt Annan slog up and down hills and through long grass. Feeling weak and unfit most of the way! Made mistake on way to 3 - spotted VE control and started running downhill towards it instead of along track to my control. 8-9 was a killer up cleared hillside. Overshot 12 and ran off map, mixing with the M course people! Slog from there to finish, struggled to make myself run in places and had quite a few walks!

Cycling 1:18:25 [3] 29.61 km (22.7 kph) +424m
shoes: Sidi Road

Started Terry Hills, got back as far as St Ives hill before I got a flat. Tried to fix it at top of hill but pump hopeless so rang the rescue crew. Then got bored so pumped tyre a bit more, enough to roll along and got as far as top of Mona Vale Rd big hill. Waited for lift there as was not game to go too fast on flat tyre. Taking it easy as trying not to smash up legs too much before this afternoon.
1 PM

Orienteering 18:22 [3] 1.75 km (10:28 / km) +17m 9:59 / km

VE with Aoife. Strart triangle confusing (again). Also confusing as course crossed itself a few times plus doubled back. She coped well. Would be good to cross her and Lyra, they'd make a good team! WE were leapfrogging much of the course.

Orienteering 49:47 [3] 4.11 km (12:07 / km) +99m 10:49 / km

Wattle Ridge. Taking it easy as did not bring O shoes and was very insecure in loose fitting trail shoes. One ankle twist that was not too bad so got away with it. Extremely poor route choice and execution to 1. Lost a heap of time there. Shaky for next few. Off-line to 5 but picked myself up OK, same for 8. Too right for 9 and lost some time there. Wonky to 10 but got it OK. 11 and 12 were freaky - quite scary with a massive cliff to get down plus another one below. I would not have set here (risk averse) but pleased we were taken there as it was stunning! Struggled back up cliff to 13 in unsuitable shoes and feeling my age. Slog to the finish showed how unfit I am. Green was probably good NZ training.
