Orienteering 1:04:08 [4] 5.5 km (5.1 kph)

Day 2 Course 3. More pine forested sand dunes. Reasonable run up to 3 then nothing seemed to fit on the map. I hit a road too early and at the wrong angle and I should have seen the control before that. I took a while (7m?) to work out I had done a 180, by turning the map upside down. Another mistake on the way to 7 sent me too far to the right. Worked out where I was by unexpectedly seeing the only water tank on the map. Boring finish on the last 3 controls. Finished way down the list with multiple elites doing the same course.

Orienteering (Course 3) 1:05:10 [4] 5.0 km (4.6 kph)

North Auckland Event in pineforested sand dune country north of Auckland near Helensville. This is a prelim event to the Oceania Champs. Day 1 of 3.

Set of very cautiously and as someone who has not done a lot of running for a while. That was reflected in the time taken to the first control. It did however allow me to get a feel for the map which in turn made me very comfortable with the route choices. I knew were I was all the time and only made minor mistakes totalling maybe 4 minutes. Happy with the time.

Cycling 1:45:30 [4] 45.2 km (25.7 kph) +257m

Lots of fun with a strong SW tail wind but paid for it on the way back. Headed for the burbs to make more interesting on the way back.
