H4 course at Julimar, GPS 5.74km. Went a bit wide to 1 rather than go straight up the hill, and wasn't intending to use the trail bike tracks, but came upon the Eastern one after cresting the ridge. When it came really close to the Western one I took a bearing to the control, but came out to the wrong control on a creek, 100m E of mine, so I think the tracks aren't mapped accurately.
Climbing up to 2 brought on the breathing (and apparently increased HR to 160+), and after the short leg to 3 I was probably in need of a rest. Didn't take it, and consequently went N for 3-400m instead of W. Eventually realised I should have been going downhill, so turned S and came to a large rock surface which told me where I was (400m NE of control 4). Very, very slow from there to 4, 5 and 6, HR reaching 180 before 6, so after punching sat on a log for a few minutes, then was able to run again. After being in 2nd place at 2, dropped 10 mins at 4, 3 mins at 5, 10 mins at 6, and 4 mins at 7 to finish well down, 30 mins behind Noel & Anthea.
