ACT League at Badja. Had been looking forward to this but didn't quite pan out for me today. A head cold hit last night, then I forgot to pack my O shoes (ran in my cushioned road shoes) and forgot to take ventolin before running. The road shoes went okay though I was slow and tentative in places. The lack of ventolin didn't go so well and my effort was really limited, particularly in the 1st half. My orienteering was okay-ish. Felt strangely confident that I was going to hit things and generally did (perhaps because I was going so slow :D ) but had a few sloppy moments where it showed that my head wasn't quite in it.
Best moment of the race was at #14: I switched off early in the leg, made a parallel error and had only a rough idea of my location. Relocation strategy was to head up onto a spur where there were some knolls and big rocks and work out my location somewhere along it as I continued toward the control. I laughed out loud when I relocated by running straight into the control a couple of minutes later. Was only 3.5 min slower than Andrew on that leg when it could have been a hilariously bad error.
