Orienteering race 14:25 [5]

NOL sprint heat. bush sprint on red hill. nice run down the hill, with lots of short legs in low viz along the slope. just one pesky climb to have to walk. fun course, and nice to be able to run most it with much less pain than previously. pity I lost so much on #2. didn't feel like I lost 40secs, but in hindsight I was quite hesitant, and I dropped a bit too much and had to come back up the track and I ran through a massive spiders web which too a while to get off.

Orienteering race 16:45 [5]

NOL sprint B final. I was looking forward to this, but I was a bit disappointed. The course was really good, but the mapping was confusing and unclear. I'm sure it looks great when zoomed in on a computer screen, but it was un-readable printed. Lost a heap of time early in an area that turned out to be not mapped at all, and back/hammy was hating me, so just ended up in plod mode.

Running warm up/down 40:00 [2]

warm ups and warm downs for both races

chiro again. seem to be getting closer to fixing the back issues. hopefully hammy will settle after that.

Swim 35:00 [3] 1.5 km (23:20 / km)

swim in the rain. swimming has improved enough that I now have the option of choosing to go a bit faster - so I did 6 x 50m hard, with 50 recovery. not sure that swimming harder was any faster, but it did feel more like training. recovery is really hard when your face is in the water.

Orienteering race 18:12 [4] 3.4 km (5:21 / km)

OY sprint at USQ Ipswich, set by Caroline. A bit of a running experiment, which didn't go too badly. still no where near pain free, but heaps better than last weekend. just made sure I didn't push it too hard, and backed off heaps on any hills or stairs. clean run, but really starting to feel the lack of fitness.

the event had the usual dose of sprint drama. just after first starts a gate in the showgrounds got opened (that i've never seen open before), and a few people went through who really should know better (and had clearly not even looked at their maps), then tried to blame it on the organisers. really shits me.
