O race 50:00  4.1 km (12:12 / km) +100m 10:52 / km
NSW Middle Champs - One leg again was my undoing altho I lost at least a minute or two at control 2 - this meant that Paul P caught me and he followed me thru the next 6 controls. When he got ahead I lost contact with the map and really stuffed up the leg to 9 losing about 8 minutes - both if us were looking at each other and not at the map! Found fine detail on map hard to read and took a while to get used to the mapping with only boulders above 1.5 metres mapped - there were lots of rock all of different sizes. Very short legs meant that it was hard to get away from another runner and there were few route choices - 19 controls in 3.3kms - altho I covered quite a bit more ground than that.
O race 1:19:42  7.43 km (10:44 / km) +235m 9:16 / km
NSW Long Champs and 4th place after a pretty physical course with fine granite nav in the circle. Generally happy with run - bit slow on the long leg to 6 which was uphill nearly the whole way (16 contours) in about a km - felt I could only really walk this leg as fast as possible - needed fine nav as well to make sure you got the right clearings and rock slabs as virtually no control features on the slope to use as an attack point for 6 - was also slow getting down to 7 just because I did not want to fall - others took more risks I expect. Only other less than stellar effort was the long leg to 8 where I accidentally chose a good route choice but was hesitant as I mistook a cleared area and was 200 metres further ahead and on a different line to what I expected I was for about a 5 minute period. Having a gel helped me get thru this race. Found it easier to read the map detail today, despite a lot of sweat in the eyes too often - bring on some cold weather please.
ride with Peter 1:40:00  40.0 km (2:30 / km) +250m 2:25 / km
Peleton of of 6 on a nice riding day for usual LBG ride - still and sunny later - no competition on the hill sprint - lots of surging today as group split and I rode between both groups spending time chatting with different people. Coffee discussion seemed to cover all current major world events.
Run 36:15  5.44 km (6:40 / km) +107m 6:04 / km
Trail run at Black Mtn with the now retired GrantM - did a loop from Aranda and around LBM. Chatting pace expect on the climbs - lovely day.
