Orienteering race 14:38 [5] 2.93 km (5:00 / km)
slept:7.0 (injured) shoes: Inov8 X-talon 212 (#2)

STB Race 2 - Te Aute College
A bit hesitant on #1, loosing a few secs. Too low on #2, then too cautious on #3. Didnt attack #4 enough, and ran past the control loosing 30secs. Didnt run out to the open fast enough for #5. Reso good through the rest of it, but didnt have good flow through the buildings at the end. I find it hard pushing fast when in the wet conditions. I slipped a bit at one control, but overall I lacked aggression.
2 PM

Orienteering race 19:40 [5] 3.47 km (5:40 / km)
(injured) shoes: Inov8 X-talon 212 (#2)

STB Race 3 - Pukeora Hill
Started out ok, missed a few secs on #1, and missed a good gap on #3. Went ok through to 9, but missed the easy route to #10 and then #11. Brain totally escaped me after #13, and I basically stopped navigating as I ran down the hill. Then started going to #15 before getting #14! Fucktard! Race pretty much over at this point. Tried to catch up to Jamie (who ran past me during my mistake), but didnt really have much speed. Caught up to him after #18, but then started following him, instead of navigating myself. Got completely lost, and had no control. Panicked, fumbled, got caught by bryn. Frickin useless.
7 PM

Orienteering race 19:05 [5] 2.62 km (7:17 / km)
(injured) shoes: Inov8 X-talon 212 (#2)

STB Race 4 - Sleeping Giant (Te Mata Peak)
Too apprehensive from the start. Pussy footed round to 1, should have attacked the hill earlier. Muffed 2 a little and got dragged to the left. Missed a gap down to 3, and ran further than i needed too. Wasnt following the map into #4, and completely ran past it loosing 30secs. Missed the good route to #, then fluffed about for 8 and 9. Struggled reading the map 11-14 and lacked aggression. Couldnt stay upright on the way to #15, just slipped the entire way and map got covered in mud. Couldnt make sense of the map through the next controls 16-20 and lost heaps of time. Pussy footed down through to 24. So far behind.................
