Orienteering race 1:12:31 [4] 8.78 km (8:16 / km) +400m 6:44 / km
ahr:137 max:148 shoes: Apr 2010 VJ Falcon

Not well prepared or warmed up at the start and was really noticing lack of mobility in lower back for all the bending/twisting/jumping/falling required to make good progress in much of the terrain.

Having said that, still going at a respectable pace but got confused by extra standing water at #4 and thought I had made a mistake when I hadn't (until then), then had no plan at #5 and lost more time - maybe 3-4 mins lost at these two.

Ticking the flags off okay after that but just a bit scrappy and not picking the most efficient lines on either map or ground. Got caught by Fraser around #20 and realised I could be going quicker! However got distracted as well and made an error at #22, lost about 45s or so.

A good run out and a good reminder of the need to practice running in terrain and to be aggressive in it! Enjoyed it even if a little off the pace today (Fraser ran 65 with Jase on 68 and Ben S on 72 just a few secs ahead of me).

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.5 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Apr 2010 VJ Falcon

To the start fairly hastily. Back from the finish less hastily.
