orienteering race (Red Hill qualifier) 17:00 [3] 2.1 km (8:06 / km)
shoes: Inov8 ORoc 280

From the assembly area at Canberra Girls' Grammar, we were walked most of the way up Red Hill to the top (would have been nice to keep running along the ridgeline) for a course which wasn't as much of a downhill slalom as I had feared and went more along the hillside looking for termite mounds and watercourse ends and was actually quite fun; I was sorry when it finished but glad to be done before it rained.

orienteering race (Cbr Girls' Grammar B fina) 17:13 [4] 2.5 km (6:53 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Two laps of a fun little school, struggling to read the detailed stairs and whether or not small gaps were passable, but mostly picking ok routes except for ending up on the level below the balcony on control 3 and hesitating mid-leg 14-15 when I finally worked out where the impassable walls were. Kind of ran out of my own legs about halfway through the second lap but am happy that I am running better against people of my vintage than I was 3 months ago.

Incidentally, I did think the A final should probably have had more than 6 finalists in senior women - top 4 from each heat could have worked better - and also more than one control which was different from the B final course!
