I think I made the right decision not going to Canberra this weekend. It seemed quite unusual to have a Sprint Distance qualification with only 30% making the final, based on a forest race with little resemblance to Sprint Distance. Heat allocation also looked uneven, which would have been frustrating for some, and very lucky for others.
That does not seem very fair. Why would we organise competitions that introduce such an element of luck?

3rd place. 9 seconds faster than last week.
It was quite warm and humid this morning.
No NOL for me this weekend unfortunately. Torren has a basketball grand final this afternoon, and representative AFL trials tomorrow. Mason also has his last 2 cycling races tomorrow at Caribbean Gardens.
