Orienteering race 17:17 [5] 2.5 km (6:55 / km)

Aus sprint champs at Canberra Grammar. Great little map, and a tricky course that used the area well and avoided dead running. I was quite pleased with this run - I was able to plan ahead well and kept up with the navigation. had two little moments of confusion with a decoy control before the map change, and getting back into the map after the map change, but a clean run other than that. Faded a little towards the end of the course on the longer legs.
Great to be back the top 10 - particularly in a sprint!

I had a couple of issues with the map and course drawing - 1. the bent line between 7 and 8 was really annoying as the line then pushes you off course. I hate it when course setters do this - to me its just a lazy option with the course layout. 2. poor circle breaking made it hard to see gates and gaps between buildings - the men's control 15? was a particularly bad example, and 3. the use of black crosses on the maps was clunky and illegible. we had one control on a pole of a canopy - surely you could map the canopy without the pole (and still have the control in the same place).

Running 40:00 [2]

possibly the slowest run in Anzac park ever. decided I needed to sneak in some training, although after a big weekend of painting and cleaning I was completely stuffed. still surprised at how rotten I felt. oh well. hopefully not getting sick.
stopped off at the chin up bar - managed 2 sets of 5, then some flailing about while attempting a third.
