Orienteering race 37:07 [5] 5.7 km (6:31 / km)

QB3 day 3, Sappa Bulga, middle distance. Had a pretty good run, got into the map pretty well and ran hard. Dropped a minute on number 2, missing the control in the low vis green but there wasn't any other significant time losses elsewhere. Shep got me by 37 secs, so closest I've been all weekend.

Orienteering race 1:25:04 [5] **** 13.4 km (6:21 / km)
shoes: Dads Inov8 x-talon 190

QB3 day 2, Sappa Bulga. Nice long course set by Josh. Went out 20 mins before 1st starts to wake up controls, but they were all awake when I got to them. So had a nice run by myself, which meant I probably didn't push so hard in places but oh well. Started a bit cautiously just getting into the map, but got the controls well and had the fastest split on the long leg to 3, which I went left on up through the watercourse. Fine up until 9, although still a bit cautious, my splits were a little down on Shep and Andrew Barnett through here. Lost nearly 3 mins on 10, couldn't tell which rock I wanted on a hill where everything looked the same. Had to relocate and found that I'd been standing on the other side of the rock I wanted all along. Left on the long leg to 11 which was fast, then a quick gel and drink at the control. Pretty slow to 12, I went straightish up through the watercourse into the more complex area and picked my way slowly through there, then missed the control a little bit. Quickest through 14 and 15, but overran 16 and lost another minute or so. Quickest again to 17, but lost more time at 18 seeing the control but thinking it wasn't mine as it looked to be between 2 rocks, and I was looking for bare rock. Checked it out eventually and it was bare rock all along but looked different from my direction, annoying. Reasonably good from here to finish.

So in summary, I was running well but silly errors cost me too much time. 75 was potentially doable today. Shep did 77, Barnett did 83.

shoes: Dads Inov8 x-talon 190

QB3 Day 1. Pretty bad run, just missed a heap of controls and lost little bits of time that stacked up. Then lost nearly a minute from bad direction to 17. Felt good running though so hopefully tomorrow is better.

Netball 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: Nike Flyknit Lunar2

Half game for Macey's Angels, in C. We played well but went down 22 - 12.
Got the call up from my friend who plays in Division 1, they needed an extra player. So full game in C for Mixed Punch. Another bloke on the team had never played before and pretty much just stood there, combined with the fact that we were versing the defending champions, meant we went down 47 - 4 haha.
