Amazing bit of forest to begin and end with and massive grassed sand-dunes in between. Absolutely smashed by the end of it all. Good fun.

Figure 8 of Pukekura, bumped into Libby after a km or so, so had a social run for the first half, before looping back up home.

Prior to heading out I discovered a large bruise on the back of my left thigh. Courtesy of my highly coordinated pirouette over the broken fence on Sunday. Turns out I never look at teh back of my legs, given it took 2 days to find!

Club event at Te Rewa Rewa.
A loop of Rotomanu to start, a dash across the farmland, and then a relative control pick through the open dunes to finish. Gut and knee both feeling fairly average, but could keep the mind off both when negotiating the dunes.

Had an unfortunate encounter with a broken fence in the long dune grass (we were warned about it in the event info to be fair). I saw the low wire and went to step over it, but suprise! it turned out there was a 2nd higher wire. Really got me there fence! Instead of doing a normal faceplant though, i somehow did a 180 turn, got my foot caught under dune-grass on one side of the fence, and ended up sitting on my arse on the other side of the fence - with the rogue wire doing it's best to amputate me through my knee-pit. Probably lost 4 mins extricating myself :)

Having escaped the fence of doom, I continued on to #19...which was unfortunately not where it should have been. After circling the circled thickets a few times, i gave up and kept going. On return to the finish though, the organiser was sure that the control was in the correct place and I'd been in the wrong spot - until we looked at my map, at which point he exclaimed "oh! your circle is in the wrong place!" was a pre-printed map, so I'm not sure I can take blame for that?! :D

Orienteering 12:00 [1] 2.0 km (6:00 / km)
