Orienteering race (ultra sprint) 8:12 [4] 1.64 km (4:59 / km) +8m 4:52 / km

Ultra sprint at Faulkner Park. First ultra sprint in more than 8 years, since back when Simmo called it orientshow. I really enjoyed it, but it must have been a lot of work to organise. Thanks tRicky!

A bit slow on this first course (Long 1), especially due to checking which garden beds were and weren't out of bounds. Made a silly mistake on the very last control (one of the three between the three trees), so lost 30 seconds. That cost me the win on this course, and it's the first time ever that I was beaten by a girl in a sprint or metro event in WA. However, since I won the overall, I'll still claim my record as in tact.

Long 2. All a bit more fluent after already being familiar with the area and the map. Surprised it wasn't all that much faster than the first one in terms of pace, but I was a bit slow coming into #20.

Long 3. Was getting a bit tired by this stage, not feeling like I had as much speed anymore, but the GPS says otherwise.
