orienteering race (CSU sprint prologue) 23:38 [3] 3.3 km (7:10 / km)
shoes: Asics Nimbus 22

After the stress of having to leave work early and get to the airport for a 6pm flight yesterday, and then driving up over the mountains to Orange this morning - it took the best part of an hour to get from Katoomba to Blackheath (although traffic was far worse later in the day from what I hear) but I did spot SLEH's campervan alongside at one point so waved to them - I was more interested in hanging out with Eleanor and Heidi than going for a run, so had entered just the public race, and certainly my result was fairly embarrassing as I did a complete 180 out of my 3rd control and later on lost another half minute on not seeing a thin strip of olive green on the way to 19 even though I'd successfully avoided it earlier in the course. Think my brain was overheating in the sun and also I was super-clumsy today; shouldered a railing with my collarbone when trying to avoid other runners going up the stairs and also managed to sideswipe the top of a metal fence post which didn't have a protective cap on it and the result was blood dripping all down my arm impressively enough for Heidi to offer me a Band-Aid when I finished.
