orienteering 13:11 [3] 1.9 km (6:56 / km)

Uni WA sprint. Open relay with Tyson and Leith. I did the moderate course. I kept thinking what was the trap on each leg but basically there was none. Quite a bit of fun and we ended up 3rd.

L and I also walked about 11 or 12 km getting to and from the event with scenic detours .

Redwoods loop with Roo who is getting the idea of running.

run 30:00 [3] 5.0 km (6:00 / km)

Run in Belair. Loop was double this after sharing his enthusiasm for running with the entire neighbourhood Callum decide he wanted to walk the rest of the way, which was fine. It was warm.

orienteering 1:20:23 [3]

Pewsey Vale course 4. Lots of little wobble/poor route choice and 3 big ones: 1 - Once near the top of the green hill , quite a feat in itself, I couldn't work out which direction I should bash about in the green in - trouble reading the contours in the circle, 2 - took 2 attempts so close the first time just didn't think to go further down to look , even heard it beep when someone else went through - why does my thinking get so stuck when plan A doesn't work? Undershot 5, way too conservative route to 6, then mucked up the easy 10 by not being able to hold a bearing , drifting left then finding myself looking at the fence at 90 degrees to the one I should've been looking at. I need to find a new compass with colour segments to follow like my old one I lost. Maybe also with extending laser lights that hold the direction of travel a long way ahead and that beeps when I drift!

One day I would like to try going round a shortish course like this twice. I feel ready to navigate well once I am finished. I am sure I could've done better a second time! I like Pewsey Vale a lot more than I used to since the Junior trainings there.
