Run 1:38:35 [3] 14.19 km (6:57 / km) +305m 6:16 / km
ahr:149 max:179 shoes: Kayano 25 Black

Longish run with Nat. Happy to wake to a clear sky, but windy, after the deluges yesterday. The ground was very wet with a flowing stream across one of the Aranda tracks, the kangaroo paddocks well and truly inundated and bits of fire trail in the arboretum very mushy and sometimes slippery. Enjoyed most of the run, but was tired and sore a lot. Had to walk a bit from the zig-zag across to Himalayan Cedars toilets. Great views for most of the run. A big struggle up Aranda Hill at the end, but made it eventually!

Quite probably the last Mt Painter lap for a while. Pattersons curse getting prolific, plus grass up to my armpits towards the end. Hard work, hips feeling stiff today. Made it out before the storms. Lucky we did not stop too early, Aoife swam 4.2 km at training this morning.

Mid-day excursion out to Black Mountain via Aranda Hill with Nat. Quite warm and sweaty out. Legs feeling sluggish. Sun disappeared by the time we sat down for coffee.

Orienteering 1:00:03 [3] 6.84 km (8:47 / km) +179m 7:46 / km
ahr:150 max:177 shoes: VJ Bold Ugly yellow

Quite a shocker, but similar to other events recently my perception was not as bad as reality. Really struggled with momentum through tall, prickly weeds. Patterson's Curse makes my legs itchy. There were also some prickly runner things that kept attaching themselves to me that were annoying and I kept stopping to remove them, only to pick up another shortly after - you'd think I'd learn! In terms of orienteering, I was continually pulling up short. This happened on 1, 4, 7, 10 and 13 to name a few ... Then there were the mistakes. Lost confidence about 10m from control when I saw all the headless chickens and so joined them on their merry hunt. For 7 I was way to the left and so it was a long slog up hill to the control, very unconfident doing this. On the way to 11 I had to stop and tie my shoelace, going to 12 I drifted left, that was OK as went through a gate rather than through fence, but then had trouble finding a place to cross the ravine. For 13 I was not reading the map well at all. By the time I was on my way to 15, it was getting a bit dark with storm clouds and I had trouble reading the dark green/contours/blue/circle so just decided I'd had enough and skipped it.
