Orienteering 15:23 [4] 2.2 km (7:00 / km)

Aus sprint champs, Curtin Uni, 11th (again)

Pretty happy with this. Campus sprints have generally seen me a bit off the pace in recent times, so good to see a bit of speed in the legs! A few hesitations, and slightly sub-optimum routes (and had to go through bunting to get to the last control??), but pretty clean.

Orienteering 43:17 [4] 5.1 km (8:29 / km)

Aus middle champs, Lover's Ridge, 11th.

Mostly happy with the run - felt like I was moving really quickly in the spur/gully at the start, but splits don't really reflect that. Although I did gain a bunch of places on the long leg to 6 (only to lose them again, grrr). Struggled running a bit from 6-12 given it was so rocky underfoot, but was pretty clean.

Missed 14 - I think I didn't check my compass (or map) again after going around a big tree. Lost 2.20 according to AP on 18, the spectator control. Got really confused by other controls in the area, and the other start (thinking it was the one on our map, but then nothing making sense). Rachel caught me here, and Katelyn caught back up to me and pushed me further up the hill to the control after I was completely baffled. Really annoyed with this mistake!

Held it together for the last loop though, and got 2nd fastest split on the uphill leg to the last control. Happy with how I was running and was feeling good, so it was a bit frustrating to make such a rookie error!

Orienteering 1:15:12 [4] 8.4 km (8:57 / km)

WA long champs, Spice Brook, 5th.

Wet, wet, wet. Luckily the junior girls copped the worst of the rain.

Kept on pushing through the race, but never really felt like I was moving too quickly. Tentative on the vague legs to 1 and 11. Lizzie blew past me on the way to 10, and found Katelyn at about the same time. Missed 15 by not dropping low enough (had assumed I would see the creek detail below me, but I was too high). Made up for it with equal fastest split on the nasty uphill afterwards.

A fair way down on the Kiwi-show, but in the mix with the Aussies.

Riding 50:00 [3]

Went out on the purple peril just after getting home from work. Up the creek to Fawkner, back streets to Merlo and then home along the Upfield.

Highlight of the day was the two guys walking the opposite way along the bike path in their underpants on my way to work. I like to think I heard them speaking Russian as I went past, but maybe I imagined that bit.

Running 20:00 [2]

Warm up, warm down.

Running 17:00 [4]

1,2,3,3,2,1 with 1 min recovery up the creek.

Took a WA map to read, but it started raining and I didn't have a map bag. It was a bit slippy out. Legs feeling good. A bit tired in general from fire.
