7 AM

River paddling 1:45:00 [3] 18.0 km (5:50 / km)
shoes: Spirit PRS Ski

was a bit chilly. I have not done an early morning paddles as I wanted to see how much more cold weather gear i need for the avon. I did not fall in, but need some gloves and another layer on my core and legs.

The paddle was good until it poored down with rain with 5km left.
2 PM

MTB Riding (Jarrahdale MTBO) 1:24:00 [3] *
spiked:13/13c slept:9.0 weight:81kg shoes: Giant XTC2 With XT Wheels

Riding through the rain...good times.

1 - Came from the south on this one as i went along a wide and faster road, but overshot the control
2 - Went west to pickup the wide road and then jutted onto the small track closer to the control
3 - Went west again and went along the track near the out of bound area, picked up the track and hit the control perfectly
4 - found easy
5 - went along the track parallel to the railway line and had a little fun finding the right track, lost about 45-60 seconds, but then found the track with the control
6 - went out to the road and into the main entry of langford park. found easily
7 - went on the road again, past the round about, took all the right turns and hit the control
8 - enjoyed the downhill run from 7 and did a dogleg past 8 to get to it
9 - went the alternate track crossing part and found 9, track was not all too clear through here
10 - once i got out of the so called track from 9 i found the downhill jumps and hit the right track out to the control
11 - up the big hill and then down on the west side of the control. missed the first turn off obviously and got a little confused with the tracks. Found a massive drop as i had gone too far south, and then backtracked and found the control.
12 - found andy (my newbie mate that I did the munda biddi with) on the way and got him to come in with me as he had clearly lost the track and could not find 8 (he left 4 mins before me and I was not going terribly fast.
13 - nice easy find on the mound

Overall pretty happy, made a couple nav mistakes that were not too major. Not the fastest but had fun doing it (except the rain)

(rest day)

Would have gone for a paddle if I had brought my towel.

Have not done much this last week because have been looking for a new car and finally got one :)
