Event: BIG 5 O Week
 
10 AM

Running warm up/down 25:00 [2] 3.0 km (8:20 / km)
shoes: Inov8 x-talon

Looking at the tricky looking terrain from below....and all the lost looking competitors...

Orienteering race 1:05:47 [4] 8.71 km (7:33 / km) +167m 6:54 / km
ahr:137 max:153 shoes: Inov8 x-talon

Big Five-O Day One, Kaapsehoop Rock Garden
H21E 5.8km, 30 controls
19th of 30

Kept it together fairly well in the tricky terrain until near the end, then totally awol at #24, ran up the wrong valley and looking in amongst the wrong rock pillars. Came out to relocate on the path, did that wrong as was rather further from the correct location than expected...

In the end lost 9.5mins and a decent result, probably 6th or 7th turned into 19th there.

A few other scrappy bits costing maybe 4-5 mins so not perfect otherwise, would however have struggled to do Dave's 48mins (4th)

Winner Oli-Markus Taivenen 42mins
Nick B 58 and Martin 63 not covering themselves in glory either.

Quite a bit in terrain, feeling the altitude a bit too. Plus a few route finding issues. Hoping those help explain why moving so slowly....
