Worst day to do the Yoyo test recovery wise. Probably better in 30deg today than in 38 on thursday I guess though. Maybe.

Bit of home town advantage again at ANU, specially having set here 2 weeks ago! ;)
Still got caught with the garden at #13, losing 30s having to go all around. Otherwise happy, just leg weary!

Orienteering 13:11 [3] 2.8 km (4:43 / km)

Wicked fun in the mass start at Radford College. Made it to no.1 in the lead, so didnt' have to worry about fighting for the punch! Easy loop back before hitting the zoom in butterflies where things spread out a bit. Was on my own once back on the full scale map, with a bit of a gap back to Hanny and Rachel. Nearly killed myself slipping on the top stair going into 19! Saw the gap in the wall leading into the last control, but decided not to chance it with everyone looking on. Yes there's a tiny gap on the map, but it's not meant to be there I don't think!

Took a comfortable win. But a bit disappointing that the finish boxes were out of sync again, particularly as it effected the results on this one. eg. Jo vs Bun, and 1v2 in the boys actually punched about 1s apart, but results have them about 6s apart!

Orienteering (Sprint Canberra Race 1) 19:22 [5] 4.4 km (4:24 / km)

Fun course around the AIS. Some early running legs, then lots of nice shorter controls in the buildings before opening up the legs again on the last couple of controls. Took a couple of controls to get into things (i haven't yet hit that termie at #2 cleanly in 3 gos). Once I got going I was fine though. A couple of brain farts on no.20 meant that I passed Mace 3 times in the space of about 30s! She must have wondered what I was up to!

I have a feeling the finish boxes might not have been synced looking at the spread of finish splits, and at the time my Garmin gave me?
6 PM

Football 43:00 [2]

Went and hit up soccer trials after the event.

Strength and Conditioning 40:00 [3]

6 PM

Orienteering 40:25 [3] 6.1 km (6:38 / km)

Twilight event out at Ainslie North. I took Lukas's training exercise map - so no map for 2/3rds of the course, just circles!
I always miss the control in the area around no.1 even with a full map, so no big surprise that I missed it just on a bearing! Got gradually better after that, although finding termies with nothing but a bearing is pretty damn hard I found!
Got caught up by Grace, who was flowing through the controls nicely. I got away on the long leg and downhill though. We had the same time on our watches at the end, but I took out the win (apart from Jo 2mins ahead!), as it turns out I'm just lazy about stopping my watch at the finish!

...and then it turned out Grace and Matt both had the full map! I'm going to assume Jo too ;)
