Orienteering (Easter M21AS Day 1) 49:58 [4] 6.78 km (7:22 / km) +198m 6:26 / km
shoes: X-Talons 212

6 mins off the leaders time. This was a group start for the 21AS "Sledge" category. A quick run up the hill to the first control and then a pack of 3-4 (once Tyson cottoned on just before reaching 2) of us pretty much followed Paul to 2, 3, 4, 5. Then we came up the side of the hill a bit wide of the mark for 5 and I fell for it - thinking we must be on track and hence the control a bit to the right. Meanwhile Paul corrected and shot off like he had found 5 and was going for 6. I scrounged around and finally found 6 and by 7 (thus winning the descent shorts!) was with the B pack of Tyson and Mike (no not Mike Tyson). The splits show me being only a minute off the lead here and what I should have done was hoofed it up the hill along the fence. But paced it with the others and hit 7 a bit slower, then I lead to 8, gained pep and raced off to 9 successfully and then opened the gap to 10, but went high and hit the boulders SSW of 10, eventually getting it after the B train left, losing 2 minutes. Despondent I had directional problems going to 11 - lost a minute here, and then made it back with the calf in tact feeling ok. In hindsight - sticking close to Juffy would have been the better thing to do.

Orienteering race (Easter Prologue) 22:23 [4] 3.13 km (7:09 / km)
shoes: X-Talons 212

Held back and kept a steady pace since this was my first full run on the calf since injury - and it held up fine. Started last with a minute gap in front, so did not see anyone on the course. Big mistake overshooting 6 by about 100m. A little trouble finding 17. Happy with the run and that the calf was fine.

Road bike (Floreat Renegade) 1:16:00 [5] 46.0 km (36.3 kph)
shoes: Amiata Torino

Didn't know what to expect after last nights depletion effort on the ski. But it turned out my legs were good, and I think the sprint racing must have made my chi angry because I felt I had a good amount of energy. This was probably my best ride to date. Kept up thoughout. Finally rode the Mosman Park hill properly with only out of this world Chris passing me by in the middle section and the rest far enough behind. Tooms, Dalto, Chris, Shane, Jake and I. About 15 C at the start - put on two jersey's but didn't need the 2nd after about 10mins.

Paddling (T2) 1:20:00 [5] 11.2 km (7:09 / km)
shoes: Epic V10

First time at the T2 session, but no T2, instead J1 was our fearless leader. I was put in the third group. Easy I thought, against pretty much all plastics. Wrong, Jason, Andrew in their PRS's, a couple of others and a double. The best I could do was hang on to someone's wake for the out leg. I lost a lot of ground going timidly around the corners, with so many boats flying around.

5 races (I think). A good workout. The first two had my arms and shoulders hurting. There after I managed to improve my technique and get the abs and legs doing more. Had nothing left for a third of the 4th and the last half of the 5th.

Orienteering race 1:19:00 [2] 5.5 km (14:22 / km)
shoes: X-Talons 212

H4 at walking pace. Good to be able to pick off the features along the way. The calf held up fine. Amazed I came 7th - just goes to show what you can gain with careful nav.
