Running warm up/down 20:00 [3]

Orienteering 1:35:05 [3]

So pretty happy with the start, apart from a silly route choice on three the first six controls were good. Then it started to go a bit downhill, 2mins on 7, 4mins on 8, 1min on 9 all at the end of the leg or in the circle. Then I started to get a bit flustered and was a fool and left the track really early on the way to 11 which meant I messed up pretty bad and missed my chance of finding the Jo train. Felt pretty good physically to the end but lost another minute on the last control so clearly my head was just not screwed on. Really enjoyed it still though, very glad we get another race on this map!

Running 30:00 [3]

Pre breaky jog with some surges before heading back to Queensland this arvo! Legs felt heavy and calves and glutes were a little sore but they'll come good. Back is fine again.

(rest day)

Was rolling last night and did something to my back, walking was a challenge and I had to sleep dead flat on my back. I've never felt so old!

Running 1:00:02 [3] 11.53 km (5:12 / km) +178m 4:50 / km

Run along the beaches in Newcastle to make up for no longer being at the Gold Coast. From Merewether to part way along the breakwall and back. Turned around after 30min and was running straight into the wind on the way back. No surges in the end because the hills were enough for my legs, felt jelly coming back down the Anzac walk near the end!

Running warm up/down 20:00 [3]

My warm down was a lay in the sun on the beach, oops.

Orienteering race (Public Sprint) 11:50 [3]

A 20second miss on the first one which was in the wrong spot, and took a silly route out of the control to 8. But other than that I did good and i'm happy with my physical too, and thats really nice to have some positives but also really frustrating that I couldn't get it together for the slightly more important races!

Almost equally as frustrated that the Aus championship races aren't on winsplits but this race is, would love to be able to look at those...

Running warm up/down 25:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Aus Relay Champs) 45:26 [3]

Had stopped too early on number one which meant the pack was a little in the distance so I thought i would trust myself and stay high to 3, but then I lost so so so much time next to the circle. Found a huge track that wasn't on the map, didn't find a fence that was on the map and then tried to use vegetation as my attackpoint which obviously didn't work and made me question why i hadn't seen or had seen those extra things. Was pretty sloppy and veered off my line on the next 4 of 5 controls. Pushed hard to the end but pretty disappointed again... Haven't had the right concentration the last two days, either super nervous and couldn't calm down in the sprint or not quite focussed enough with a bit of a mixed up team in the relay. Hopefully next weekend will be a bit different!
