Orienteering 25:00 [4]

Hit up Newcastle Uni -where the NOL sprint race was in 2012. Too good an opportunity to miss, especially as I made such a mess of the race a couple of years ago!

Ran Red1 I think - the longest non NOL course. Handled myself much better in the maze like part at the start this time, but still got my direction wrong and did a lap of an extra building at one point.
And got my direction wrong coming out of the spectator again! resulting in circumnavigating yet more buildings! Crazy.

Probably could have used the rest day, but like I say, too good a map to miss the chance :)

Orienteering 37:50 [4]

Last day. In some nice pine forest. Started off at the same time as Aislinn, but aside from leading her astray on the way to the pivot control :), We didn't see each other the whole course!
Nice fast terrain. Lost a bit of momentum when I dropped too low on 10. Took me until 11 to catch Bun back up. Otherwise happy. An enjoyable week, and hopefully I've got rid of some of the technical rust before the HP camp in 2 days time!

Day 4 Ophir Diggings.
Best course of the week. Some good route choices, nice area, and some wicked mining towards the end.
Navigation clicked pretty nicely, picked the slower route on 3 and was unsure at the end, relocating off my catching feature when I didn't see the control on my first pass. So lost 2mins there. Otherwise OK. Caught Jo as we entered the mining, unfortunately she just missed the first control in it - so I ended up leading her through rather than vice versa! :)

Day 3 Rocky Falls.

Terrible run. Mistakes on 3,4,5 and 6. And a silly route on 9 when I'd lost all motivation for the course really. Slightly reassured in my own abilities when we realised how warped the map was around #4 and 6, from the gps. But 3 and 5 were entirely me.
Fortunately (?) the entire women's field had rough days, so my time doesn't look too bad! Jo got me by about 30s, so I messed up our Kiwi white wash today unfortunately. Sorry!

Day 2 Kahli's rocks.
A course that just skimmed around the edges of the rock detail really. A bit disappointing given the area. Having said that though, I still made mistakes! Caught Cassie up a couple of mins by #3 and we to and fro-ed for a few controls, before I finally clicked and remembered just how to orienteer smoothly!

Sprint Xmas 5 days. Really felt the lack of speed work and proper fitness! Managed to hold off Laura, just.

Headed back to Canberra with the good intention of stopping at the top of the Corn trail for a bit of a run on the way. Unfortunately the weather packed in at exactly the same time, so after driving out to the end of the trail, I decided heading out in thunder, lightning and hail, into the bush by myself, probably wouldnt have been the smartest idea.

So no run :( But now I know where to go I guess.
