Dee Why SSS. Very nice route around Dee Why. Think i picked the route correctly, except maybe i didn't take into account the contours enough.
A fair few honest mistakes - taking wrong minor trails instead of trusting my map, some terrible micro route choices, and not having a very good idea of how far i'd travelled on trails meant a lot of slow going wondering if i'd missed the control. Main mistake was punching the wrong control as my last control before the finish - (i think the one i punched was from the kids course). It was about 50 m away from the correct control, and if i'd interpreted the map correctly should have been obvious. If not for that, would have been 600 - 1min and won OM, but ended up as 590 - 1min. Felt great to be so close to getting them all in the time limit finally, but not sure where the cardio is at... it all felt a bit too hard today.

Boxing Day manly dam loop, ended prematurely by heel blisters on both feet... Partly from new shoes, but partly from wet ankle socks and elasticey laces. Technique feels good enough for cradle. Need to switch to long demanding runs and strength training.
