Adventure Racing 12:55:00 [3] 140.0 km (5:32 / km)

Full Moon AR at the Vaal in a pair with Steph.
4km paddle, 7km run, 10km paddle, 7km run, 1.5km paddle, 30km cycle, 12km run, 68km cycle.
We had some good run/hike legs. We survived the paddling, but I was stuffed starting the 30km cycle - I could just about keep up with Steph on the bike. Came around for the run and was quite strong on the last cycle.
We had a good race. Got as high as 5th overall after the last hike, but got passed by Park Rangers and John & buddy on the last cycle. 7th in the end. Pretty pleased to beat the Keyhealth youngsters :)
About 3 hours off the leaders.

Run intervals 44:44 [4] 7.84 km (5:42 / km)
shoes: Mizuno Wave Sayanora 1

Easing into some intervals. Plan was to do 15 x 400m at 1:42 with 30s rest. Our road was a little bit up in one direction, so one way was faster than the other. And I had 2 dogs for added excitement.

Run tempo 22:22 [5] 5.05 km (4:26 / km)
shoes: Nike Vomero 7 #2

Timetrial with Attila. Met some rogue golden retrievers near the start, so had a bit of a faff letting him off to sniff some bums. Then his head wasn't in it when we passed Leia and Steph going in the opposite direction. Sort of comfortable.
Time to do some proper training for Kaapschehoop marathon! The plan is to head out there that weekend to plan the Big 5 sprint.

Orienteering race 1:07:32 [3] 7.81 km (8:39 / km) +436m 6:45 / km
shoes: Inov8 x-talon

New part to the Pelindaba map. Nice new section with some very rocky terrain.
Pretty solid run without any major hiccups. Overshot #12 running down the river and had to come back for it. Otherwise just noticed some slow execution and slow running! Passed Sarah and Tania, and got passed by Brad and Mike.
Enjoyed it a lot.
Maybe some more rigid shoes would have helped.

Crazy Store 36km!
Happy to finally do this route! The first half was really fun. The second half would have been better with more training. Finished 9th, and importantly, ahead of Janneke :) Was a bit close at times. Might have been 7th with a stronger finish. Walked quite a bit in the last 3 km and got passed by 2 guys. But I passed some other guys who were worse off than me, so not too bad. Pretty stiff now.

Hiking 1:49:55 [1] 6.94 km (15:50 / km) +301m 13:01 / km

Day 4 back to the start. We skipped day 5 - the hill side had burnt the previous night and we weren't feeling all that energetic. Opted for lunch with a nice view.
Overall, a fun trip. 2 days is the right amount of time for it. The single day trail run seems tough (maybe next year...).
