Otago Long Distance Champs, Mt Ross.
Raced this one properly, pretty clean most of the way around, just a few 10-20sec hesitations/checking the wrong rock. Started well but got tired and battled a little bit in the second half. Splits show the same thing, had the lead for the first half and then Chris Forne took chunks out of me on the longer hilly legs near the end.
Came 2nd, 2min back. Fairly happy with that having not done much orienteering at all. Maybe I can fluke a good run somewhere at Nationals.

OY1 Over in Middle March. Cruised around the long red and tried to remember how to navigate, been a while since I've done an event that wasn't around town (maybe even 2 years?). Good course, lots of good little legs to keep it interesting. Legs still a little fried from Thursdays session, will give it a proper effort tomorrow, should be a good race as lots of chch people are down here.

8x1k, @3:25, 60sec Jog.
Had to do it on the waterfront as the track was being used for school athletics. Super windy so splits were a bit all over the show (3:19-3:28). Felt ok with the short recoveries, but definitely worked hard in the head winds and in the second half. 34:00 could be a bit optimistic for a 10km right now, 34:20 might be on the cards, will have to see what the weather for Southern Lakes looks like.
