Weston Park. Orange 1. Spoiled a decent run with 1 mistake (35 seconds). Somehow got the direction wrong out of 12 and followed a dead straight line about 10 degrees off what I needed, ended up at the wrong copse - a lookalike for the right one 80m (!) to the north. Also lost about 15 seconds approaching 14 through dark green instead of running around.

Avoided Clarrie Hermes, but got swooped anyway at the previous junction: followed for a 100m with the magpie 1m above my head. Then swooped again on Well Station Drive: 2 magpies waiting on a lightpole came at me together, luckily a cross tailwind blew them off course and helped me outrun them.

Sandhills, M60, 1st. Rest day yesterday worked and was able to run freely. R Knee sore after though. Quite poor navigation. Off line at 2, 3. Concentrating too hard on compass at 6 and didn't look 10m to my left - ran a further 110m on the same bearing (-3:15), lost my line and overshot 10, bamboozled and lost the plot at 11 (-2 minutes). Very lucky to survive all that for the class win, but poor performance on Course 4.
