Run race (Comrades Down Run) 9:25:54 [3] 90.74 km (6:14 / km) +1696m 5:42 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 31

Plan was for a 3h53 halfway split, which I did. Legs weren't good for that, and I started suffering earlier than I should have. Ran most of the way down Fields Hill, but by the bottom, my quads were stuffed. Had a long walk after that, and managed some running in the last 5km. My quads haven't been messed up to that extent before - I suppose they're just not conditioned for it.
Given some pretty good training, it's frustrating. A more conservative approach may have given me 8h30...

Run 53:49 [3] 10.2 km (5:17 / km) +112m 5:00 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 31

10km from RAC. Supposedly a pre-comrades run, but everyone went off in different directions!

Orienteering 17:15 [3] 3.66 km (4:43 / km) +69m 4:18 / km
shoes: Salomon Wings Flight

Some of the O'. On the way to #6, I realised I hadn't started my watch.
Didn't feel particularly fast, but edged out Garry and Brad for the win. Sucked on the uphill run in, but the rest was ok. Couple of small time loses. Good planning from Carl - was hoping for me trickery in the Rose Garden.

Orienteering 26:22 [3] 3.51 km (7:31 / km) +50m 7:01 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 29 #2

World Orienteering Day event at Fourways High. I've never been on this map before and it was interesting. Really smart format - a whole lot of controls in a score event style, but 9 bonus controls as map memory snippets on some of the normal controls. The numbers weren't marked on the bonus controls, so you had to remember the position and number to punch in the right block. Challenged the old memory to remember 4 locations and numbers at a time. Forced quite a lot of normal navigation on auto-pilot which was interesting.
