Orienteering race (SC#8: TUT) 24:48 [5] 4.1 km (6:03 / km)
shoes: Saloman SpeedCross

New 1:4000 map of Tshwane University of Technology. It was an interesting area but the map was missing a lot of detail.
I felt like I was running really slowly, so I had lots of time to figure everything out. I didn't make any real mistakes. There were a few map detail related hesitations. On the course I was consoling myself that 5th or so would be ok considering the shin and the busy week.
So 2nd was good! Consistent I guess. Apparently that puts me 2nd in the series. Something silly like 4 points behind Jeremy, for the 2nd year now. I'm pretty happy considering the bad results at the beginning of the year and this shin.
No running for 2 weeks...
And Nathan beat me by 8 sec. That day has finally come :-)

Didn't run around much this evening. Saving my shin for Sunday.
I probably won't train much until next week. Got a lot of work to do. What kind of holiday is this?

Paddle 40:00 [2] 4.4 km (9:05 / km)

Paddle with Jane. Wits' Zeus is still there and it still floats. We attempted a lap with seats in, we made it about 50m. Took the seats out and we managed a stable 4 laps. A little chilly after falling in.
This paddling thing is still difficult...
