orienteering race (Mt Crawford Goldfields ) 1:19:52  8.2 km (9:44 / km) +270m 8:22 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc spikes
Quite a cold morning, only 3 degrees when driving through most of the Onkaparinga Valley and the little snowflake sign appeared on my dashboard. Still chilly when putting out the last few kiddie controls but the sun came out before we ran, although Mt Crawford maxed out at under 12 degrees today. It was a good course from Frank & I finally sneaked under 10 min km for the first time since I don't know when...I think I was the only person who did this course, which was technically OY for W21, M20, M35 but none of those were running. Was great to run around Rocky Paddock - avoiding the campers - and not have to slog up Tower Hill (the M21 course would have gone there but since Simon's overseas, those controls weren't even put out) and in fact I enjoyed it so much that I went back there to collect controls afterwards. Away from home 7am - 4pm and knee & foot were unhappy by the end but this definitely still beat being at work!
