Paddy Palin adventure race at Euroka with Nicole. Shouldn't really have been doing this after a week off work sick and still feeling rotten, but had paid the money and managed to coerce a partner so didn't want to pull out. Nicole hadn't done much on a MTB so knew it'd be cruisy rather than competitive and so it proved, we were through the easy scatter course quickly then plodded along the bike sections as the whole field seemed to come past, particularly on the Oaks, but we then moved back through much of the field on the 8km trail run round to Red Hands cave (my HR was sky high) and after some more biking and a 3km kayak we ended up a surprising 3rd in the mixed teams. Good fun day out, coughing aside. Would be more fun if it involved more actual navigation.
