Short race at John Curtin College NavDash. All over the place, mistakes at 3, 5, 6, 12 and 14. 3 was a route choice error, just didn't see the left option. The first error at 5 was forgiveable, going to the passage that I remembered from last year, only to find the door locked (I wasn't the only one to do this), but the second error was to go into the wrong basketball court. 6 was route choice again, didn't see the right option avoiding all the stairs, twists and turns inside the school. 12 was a mapreading/failure to look at description error; got halfway to where I thought it was, only to realise it was outside the gate. When I eventually got there it looked like the station could have been punched through the gate - hope no-one did that. From 13 I went straight to the finish and had to go back to 14, then couldn't see it behind a large tree. I think I dfidn't look there at first because it was mapped as yellow all around, but there was only grass on one side.
At a guess, I lost 0:30 at 3, 1:30 at 5, 0:30 at 6, 1:00 at 12, and 1:00 at 14, but it feels like I lost more.
Note: looking at the splits, my time losses (relative to Liam) were 0:15 at 3, 2:00 at 5, 0:30 at 6, 1:15 at 12 and 1:00 at 14, 5 mins in total - confirms my suspicion that the course was slightly long.

Long race, running slowly, walking the stairs and navigating more carefully. Two small errors, route choice from 8 to 9 where I didn't see the non-wide right option, and also went in to the green too early (0:45) and 13-14 where I went down stairs into a dead end (0:30). Apparently I also must have had the map flipped over at 4, because I went from there up to 18 before going to 5.
Checking the splits I'd probably compare myself with jennycas, so time losses for the errors were 0:30 at 5, 1:00 at 9 and 0:30 at 14, so could have been 2 mins quicker.
