Run race ((orienteering)) 1:04:14  *** 5.9 km (10:53 / km) +265m 8:53 / km
Bendigo not-really-an-event at Kooyoora (no timing but the controls were out). I was in two minds about going to this but felt I could manage it without making much contact with anyone, and if this is going to be the last time for several months (and perhaps the last time out of the city for several months), going to a special place isn't the worst way to do it - particularly the leg to the last control, across the top of the Melville Caves slope with the expansive view over the rocks below.
The body wasn't really playing ball today - couldn't really run any of the hills - but there was no way I was going to pass this one up in the circumstances. At its best on the long gentle downhills from 2 to 5, although I made a bit of a parallel error mid-leg on 5 and picked it up without too much time loss. Also minor wobbles in the circle on 6 and 7. Pretty tired on the way home (which perhaps stopped me from getting too emotional about it).
A lot of things in the world are getting worse at a rapid rate at present, but one thing which has improved in the last couple of days is the state of the shops - I was able to get almost everything I wanted this morning (and they even had some toilet paper, albeit in single industrial-sized rolls). Maybe all the people stuffing every cranny of their cupboards and freezers have finally achieved their mission.
