Paddle (Dabs TT) 59:44 [3] 10.0 km (5:58 / km)
ahr:166 max:177 shoes: K1 Assegai Bigfoot

First K1 timetrial. Lots of fun! Started very cautiously. Got going nicely but then started feeling very wobbly around laps 5 and 6 as the stabilisers started getting tired. Spent most of the time near to Brian and we shared some of the work.
Could definitely go faster with some more time in the K1!

Cycling (Northern Farm Quicky) 2:25:00 [3] 48.0 km (19.9 kph)
ahr:147 shoes: Olympic MTB shoes

We rode almost every path in the place. A well put together route - lots of fun. Only problem was getting caught up with the 20km riders for a few km.
Started well. Faded a bit after 20km. And blew hard at 40km. Had low blood sugar and took a while to recover from that. The legs were also a bit tired. Disappointing because I was thinking I'd only be warming up by 40km. Anyway, might have been in the top 30 without that, but ended 40 something. Fun race

Adventure Racing (Kinetic Double Moon) 33:15:00 [3] 250.0 km (7:59 / km)

Team Uncharted - Wiehan, Lizelle, Steven and I.
A really enjoyable race - admin free, great team, felt good most of the way.

Leg 1 - 14km rogaine at Babberbaai. We went for #1 first because we knew there was a track going there. Worked well. Small mistake to the #7. But after that pretty smooth. I couldn't see the impenetrable reeds in the mist, so we had to go around them. So we went clock wise and finished with trig beacon.

Leg 2 - 5km paddle.

Leg 3 - 67 km ride. Simple as they come. Worked hard and we moved well.

Leg 4 - 20km hike : Meuringskloof was great. Then 2 big out and back climbs which wasn't fun. We moved well enough. Jabberwock caught us. Cool abseil. Race to maximise daylight

Leg 5 - 60 odd km bike: 1h30 of daylight and we made good progress. Lights on at the end of the tar. Small venture down the wrong road at the beginning of the pass, but only a few minutes lost. Wiehan had 4 punctures and yes, we checked the tyre every time! We had 3 tubes so by some miracle we got the last one to seal when we put some air in. We missed some great views doing this at night. Hike-a-bike was proper but not as bad as Swazi.

Leg 6 - 10km Claren's hike: took the left option at the bottom of the mountain which resulted in some crazy bush wacking and cliff scaling. But we got up. Jabberwock caught us because they went right. They'd also slept for 45 minutes. Got light as we came down the mountain

Leg 7 - 35 km bike: pretty fast. Less zip than the previous day and I was happy to have Wiehan feeling good enough to help with some pulling. Not much to report...

Leg 8 - 20km paddle: first 5km were awful. Falling asleep, going nowhere. Last 10km were quite good and everyone was in a good place. Got proper sunburnt with no hat and only a little sachet of suncream :(

Leg 9 - 13km paddle: back to Babberbaai. Had low blood sugar at the start but recovered pretty fast.

So we managed to win the mixed category, not from being spectacularly fast, but from not making big mistakes.

Interesting stats: a couple of 15 blood sugars, but mostly 6 to 11.
First 7 hours ave HR 140. Didn't get much after that, but I didn't get above 138 in the last 12 hours!

Orienteering race (St Albans) 24:18 [3] 3.9 km (6:14 / km)
ahr:168 max:185 shoes: Saloman SpeedCross

1:3'000 map. Mix of buildings and rough stuff along the river. Pretty clean run. Lost a handful of seconds perhaps choosing routes through the buildings that involved more stairs or small zig zags around stuff in the corridors. Probably 30 sec from not spiking the river crossing - I think it was too far north when attacking inline with the building. And then 20 seconds from getting lazy and not reading the maps on the 3rd last. Didn't read which corner of the wall it was on.
I feel a bit out of practice. 2nd, 30 seconds down on Mike. Well done Mike!
Nice new map.

Long morning! Rode from home to Steven's house in Kya Sands. From there Wiehan, Steven and I took some back roads out towards Teak Place. Did the black loop in Teak place. Had a coke and hit the tar roads home. I left them at Malibongwe to get onto Cedar Road because I needed to get home. Total time was 6:30:00. Bike computer not working after the service...

Lizelle defected to the opposition for the evening, but I got Jane in the engine room! We did well in the barge - I think equalling Tim and my best time in an Accord. I think we did 53 min in a zues last year.
The first 5 laps took forever and we didn't ever find anyone going at the same speed...

Picked up a bit of a sniffle on Sunday night. It got quite bad (almost a cold) on Monday. But feeling much better today. I think 2 days off will fix it.
