Orienteering race 45:01  8.0 km (5:38 / km)
Australian Middle Distance Champs. H21E. 6.2Km 295m
Pretty awful run. Reasonable for the first half of the course, but then a very bad few controls, and rather lost motivation after that. Kept misinterpreting bits of rock; crag v boulder v boulderfield.
Back was fairly sore overnight, and was worried about it right up until starting (which probably didn't help mentally). But actually OK once I got going.
Good for first few controls (but easy). Hesitant into 9, a few seconds lost at 11. 15 seconds lost at 12 and 13 (not quite accurate enough in rock). Then 45 seconds at 16, 1 min at 17 (both misinterpreting rock detail). Then 2 mins at 19 - just ran past the control without seeing it, and was still suffering the aftereffects of 16 and 17. 15 seconds at 24, again misinterpreting rock. The rest was OK, but not motivated to try to run up the hil at the end.
