Run race ((orienteering)) 42:21  *** 6.5 km (6:31 / km) +250m 5:28 / km
Made the trip to Diamond Hill, feeling that I needed a bit more technical work after rather too many careless mistakes on straightforward gully-spur controls in the last few weeks. Not the greatest of runs physically; still think I'm not 100% well, and took until the second half before I felt as if I had any fluency in the terrain. Decent technically though; 15-seconders at 2 and 16 but clean otherwise. Ended up 2 seconds behind Warren, and somewhat more than 2 seconds behind Evan.
You don't go into this game for pretty legs and today was especially prickly. At least the prickles don't seem to embed themselves in one's body long-term like WA ones do.
Epic Fail of the Day: to the person or persons responsible for the reference to "Julie" Gillard on the front page of today's Age. As subediting blues go, getting the name of the Prime Minister wrong on the front page is about as good (or bad) as it gets.
(The standards of political subediting haven't been great lately. There seems to have been a fair bit of confusion as to whether the name of a certain allegedly enthusiastic user of union credit cards has a "p" in it - it doesn't - and one, possibly an Adelaide supporter, even called him "Scott Thomson").
