orienteering 22:00  3.28 km (6:42 / km)
Australian sprint championship - Narrogin
Terrible cold for the last few days, and three hour drive from Margaret River to get here. Not feeling too great.
Found a new way to mess up. For my third control I ran to the intersection of two lines between controls - they made a point, like an arrow pointing to a feature. No control there. I circled around, and there was no control to be seen. Eventually realised the control was on the other side of the building. Even then, I went the wrong way around the building. Game over.
Mark Freeman started a minute behind me, and caught me at #5. We were mostly together until #15 (although I went astray at #11, where I could see some rock, but it was the wrong rock). Then Mark went right, and I went left. I picked the correct side, but managed to execute it poorly. I still picked up a good 45 seconds on Mark.
Overshot #18, lost about 15 seconds.
Finish chute tells the tale. I was the same as Mark and Shane, where I've been faster for the rest of the week.
Ok, tomorrow is my last chance at a good run for the week.
