orienteering race 1:01:37  *** 8.48 km (7:16 / km) +151m 6:40 / km
slept:5.0 shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (#3)
Easter day 2.
Thought I started well, maybe lost 30s at #2, as I initially read the lines of rock wrong, then picked a bum route. Happy through #5, lost a bit of time on #6 picking the right creek to use as a handrail - just over shot it, maybe 1 min.
#8 was my big undoing - read map well in to the minor gully, but when I got there it all looked wrong. Was actually v close to control (GPS should show), but panicked, eventually deciding to run down the big gulch to relocate... eventually hit my #10... GPS shows I lost 5'30" here :(
Struggled a bit with #13-#15 having thrashed myself from #10-#12.
Way off - 5th, almost 9 minutes down on Tony. Clung onto 2nd maybe.
