Run race ((orienteering)) 48:43 [4] *** 6.9 km (7:04 / km) +180m 6:15 / km

Couldn't manage to come up three days in a row - back was troublesome early (but eventually settled down), but felt generally tired and sluggish, and the run reflected that. Held the navigation together for the most part, except for a familiarity-breeds-contempt moment - I'd helped put some water out yesterday and one of those water controls was the one I stuffed up (only by 30 seconds or so). Was chasing Joanna (for a certain definition of "chasing") for the last few controls; she's pretty fast (certainly faster than me) but we knew that already.

Normal service was resumed in the results today (Simon 32, Dante 39), apart from Angus having a massive blowout early (and hence being my scalp of the day). May not have drunk enough yesterday - let's just say that had I been called on to do a drug test, I would have still been there at 6pm.

Heading back to Adelaide demonstrated that Goyder's line is verifying well; the landscape turned from dustbowl to green in the space of a few kilometres south of Orroroo. North of there you'll sometimes see emus grazing on barren fields; I'm assuming that there are no plans to call in the army to deal with them, given how that worked out last time.
6 PM


Helped collect some controls after the event. Memo to Victorian clubs - you really need some South Australian controls (not only are they lighter, the hinged design of the number plate means that they fit together much better - I think I could carry eight comfortably and ten at a pinch, whereas six is pretty much my upper limit in Victoria).

Perhaps some control stands should have been thrown in as part of the Patrick Ryder or Bryce Gibbs trades. (I imagine Port supporters are probably of the view that 100 control stands would have been roughly a fair exchange for Angus Monfries).
