running 30:24 [3]
shoes: Asics GT-2000

Around the suburbs. South Rd is marginally less boring by night. In other news, we finally bought a new mattress - damn, they are expensive! - and it's twice as thick as my 20-year old one so I may have to create a new loggable activity: climbing, just to get up into the (already higher than average) bed. I'm not good with heights though, so what if I fall out in the night...?

orienteering race (Stonyfell) 39:59 [4] 5.0 km (8:00 / km) +145m 6:59 / km
shoes: Asics GT-2000

Really didn't feel like orienteering this morning - it was cold and wet, I had a splitting headache and stuffed-up head, and I knew the course would be exactly the same as last year. But...I had Wallaringa t-shirts to hand out, and the fresh air when I did run cleared my head a bit, and I just sneaked in under 40, although I was a bit disappointed to be only 2 minutes faster than 13 months ago. Exciting that there was actually water in the creeks, too.

orienteering (Narrinyeri Hills) 1:20:00 [2] 6.0 km (13:20 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon bluegreen

Sore throat last night explained why I have been feeling so flat the past couple of days, and I really didn't want to get out of bed this morning, but once I'd made it to Narrinyeri and spent an hour and a half putting out tapes for training (had recycled some short courses from Mar 2010, but didn't realise there were over 30 controls, and needed to make sure that they were all numbered correctly & matched the descriptions!) I felt up to tackling the 'green' course (without tapes) on the south side of the road which Robin had set for B&S. Map updates were last done before the 2009 NOL Hagaby which Simon set, which was not long after a fire had been through the area, and so many of the 'white' bits are more like fight now and it's a game of hide-and-seek with the rock features. Which is not to say it wasn't fun, on a beautifully sunny autumn day with the smell of honey in the air, and some people even stayed around for a picnic afterwards!

orienteering race (WOD Thorndon Park) 26:48 [4]
shoes: Asics GT-2000

So, I wasn't that excited about the thought of a night score event around the streets of Athelstone, but Clive & Marion had made their special World Orienteering Day activity sound so enticing that I actually managed to make it across town by 6pm, along with 40+ other people.

There were 30 controls just within the Thorndon Park picnic area, and each represented a country (as did the competitors although we didn't have to match up with anything else) and this was great fun, also hilarious, as all the headlamps went every which way from the mass start. I knew it was going to be possible to get all the controls within the 45 min limit (this only took Simon 16 min) and although I therefore tried to find an efficient way of doing so, I kind of failed at that, taking a suboptimal route between/around the artificial lakes. But I still managed to come 4th because not everyone managed to go to all the controls they thought they'd been to...

A truly multicontinental affair, which could only have been improved by the presence of a mutant bunny: http://worldorienteeringday.com/index.php/rabbit-t...
