Orienteering 43:00  4.0 km (10:45 / km)
NSW State event at Hill End. Was cold. Spent the whole weekend convincing myself I was ok and did not have a urinary tract infection. Fooling myself and am now on yet another bout of antibiotics. Need less to say I ran like s***t. No mistakes but sooo slow and had to walk anything that was up.
Did get to run quite fast at one stage. Across a road and down into an erosion gully the side of which was so slippery my feet went out from under me and I crashed bum first at the bottom. Unfortunately I landed on my whistle which smashed, cut my bum and back in 2 places and put a massive bruise on my buttock. This proves whistles cause more problems than they solve.
Whistles? Are they required. Have Oed for 35 years and have never heard of them helping anyone. The only time I heard a whistle blast, 5 people abandoned their course to help only to discover the person was confused as to which track they were on.
