Orienteering race 1:27:12  8.45 km (10:19 / km) +265m 8:55 / km
WOC long trial - Lively's Bog.
Bit of a fail. Didn't have a disastrous run, but just not strong enough at the moment to run a classic well.
Went left on 2, but ended up above the control but thought I was below so had an extra trip to the top of the hill. a couple of minutes blown there. then miss-read the gullies around 3 and lost a bit more time. did the next section ok, but struggled on the hills to 7. Opened up the map on the way to 8 and was surprised to see the course nearly done, but then blew heaps of time at 8. had picked up a nearby control, and took it really carefully from there, but must have just missed it, and ended up doing a bit of a tour and blowing another 4 mins. finished the rest of the course ok, but just not fast enough. Even without that time loss I still wasn't quick enough.
Only conselation is that unlike easter I was able to push myself in these races, where as a month ago I was totally flat and not really able to run hard at all.
As a side note - I wasn't particularly impressed with this race as a long distance trial. After talking it up as a really tough race it was probably about 1.5km too short.
