Orienteering race (Australian Long Champs) 1:08:51 [4] 7.21 km (9:33 / km)
shoes: Inov8 212 (blue & orange)

Amiens - Course 8 (M50)
Didn't feel brave enough to go direct to 1 so headed along the track then down the creek before heading up through the white and then flat rock to the control - phew. Slow to 5 as I wanted to stay in contact with the map and was 3 mins off the pace for this leg. For some reason I convinced myself that 7 was at the end of a watercourse rather than in a depression (it helps to read the control descriptions), so I ran straight past it and followed the creek to the fence so had to retace my steps (2 mins). Happy the with next few especially 11 where I went direct over the hill and thankfully found it. Clawed my way up to 4th at 12 before dropping 4 places at 13 where I took the 'safe' track option only to overrun where I needed to cut in (1'30"). 7th at the finish at the end of a pack of 6 from NSW filling 2nd to 7th.

Orienteering race (Aus Relay Champs) 1:11:01 [4] 7.77 km (9:08 / km)
shoes: Inov8 212 (blue & orange)

Mundoolun - Course 3A (M45)
Absolute shocker completely letting Simon & Ian down. Steady through 1 and 2 and them came across an unmapped track to ther west of 3 running parallel to the fence, not just some recent roo track but a bloody great one that had been there some time. Completely lost confidence as to where I was, not helped by a 90 degree corner on the fence being hidden by the control descriptions. Wasted best part of 25 minutes wandering around in the lantana before finally forcing myself to head east through the open area to find the control, what a debacle. Aftter this the course opened up (read less lantana) and had no real problems.
