shoes: Asics DS Trainer 13

NOL Sprint at the Uni of Ballarat. Aim, as for the whole weekend, was to be smooth, practise good flow, and technique and not aggravate my achilles. So I took this one at a steady pace which made the nav rather easy though I still managed to make two suboptimal route choices and had one small concentration failure - I would guess about 20s lost all up.

Orienteering race 36:51 [4] 5.4 km (6:49 / km) +100m 6:15 / km
shoes: VJ Sticky

NOL Middle distance at Specimen Hill. This was fun and I was generally pretty pleased with my race although I made a number of small errors, mostly 10-15s ones in the circle. Lessons learnt were: 1) Need to take care running on compass, and 2) Need to ensure I've had a good read of the control circle in gold-mining because getting into the circle isn't enough. I also confirmed that my fitness is terrible.
