Burngoogee, Okm 5.0, 170m. Better effort and scraped home by 26 seconds. But the damage was done yesterday and its most unlikely I can make up 3 minutes in a sprint race. Lost 1 minute at 6, overshooting to a bigger gully than the flag was in. Like yesterday I got very close on the first attempt - 5m (10m yesterday). Also lost 20-30 seconds at 9, wrong side of knoll.

Connorton, M60, Okm 4.0, 185m. This would have to go down as one of the worst performances I have ever managed to achieve. To spike the first 12, get a lead of 3:30 over the field and then just throw it away on the last difficult control, losing 9:30 and finish 6th... And two more frustrations - this was a brilliant event, just the terrain and technical challenge I go orienteering for: PLUS I've been injured and limping all week and the physio/exercise worked and I was able to run today. For nothing.
