Orienteering 1:34:02 [3]

Nationals Long - Waipoapoa. Generally the run from hell. Lost 3 mins on 2 by veering too far left and mucking around in the wrong patch of rocks, then whacked my kneecap on a rock just as I finally got it. Failed to keep up with Lizzie for more than one control, then took ages to get through the vines and stuff in the bush. Not too terrible from 4-7, then screwed up my route to 8 and ended up way too far left and when I corrected that still managed to muck up actually getting to the control. Lost heaps of time on the rest of the controls up that creek - I think because I really struggled to read the map, especially around 10 and 11 with all the rocks obscuring the contours. Didn't really make mistakes from 13-19 but my knee was really sore and I was really tired. Lost about 2.30 on 20 and then just slow through to the finish, including a bad route to 22. In general a pretty horrible run, but looking at the results most people found it that way.

Long Run 5:00 [3]

Pathetic warm up and no warm down because my knee was too sore:(

Orienteering 42:25 [3]

Nationals Middle - Fire Station. Okay through the first few technical ones in the rocks, then missed the good route choice on 5 and went all the way round to the left. Not too bad through to 8, then screwed up 9 by about 2 mins by starting to look too early and getting distracted by other controls. 10 and 11 good, died on the hill up to 12 and then 13, then the rest went fairly well - just tired by then and just trying to stay ahead of Georgia! Pretty physical course, but lots of fun.

Long Run 15:00 [3]

Warm up/down.

Orienteering 18:00 [3]

Nationals Sprint - Woodford-Iona. Started off well, but made average route choices to 3 and 4 - still surprised to have Lizzie catch me at 6, but it turned out she had rockets on her feet or something... Came the wrong way out of 8 and went way to far left, 10 and 11 okay, then screwed up getting out of 11 and then didn't see the little track and went all the way round the road to 12. No mistakes on the rest, just slow.

Long Run 20:00 [3]

Warm up so the start and down again afterwards.

Bike 35:00 [3]

Bike out to the end of the road and back (no more erosion since last time) and then to the other end of the road and back. Pretty strong headwind on the way out but good to keep the legs ticking over.

Long Run 1:03:00 [3] 10.0 km (6:18 / km)

Hill session with the Tuesday night group - from the print shop in Napier around to the eastern side of the hill and up and around the hill in loops going up and down various streets that I can't remember/possibly wouldn't recognise in the dark. Missed one down/up because I didn't want to push it too hard this week.

(rest day)

Seemed like a good idea, plus the weather was horrible, and I froze walking from the hospital to the car.
