Orienteering race 54:54 intensity: (16 @1) + (17 @2) + (43 @3) + (44:22 @4) + (9:16 @5) ** 9.87 km (5:34 / km) +170m 5:07 / km

Heart was good today which makes it much more fun. Started the day at the back of a group of 7 within about 2 minutes and really enjoyed trying to be as fast and efficient as possible but didn't make much progress. Moved up one spot I think. Only real problem was drifting a bit right on the long leg to 6, failing to turn back to the left after contouring around a spur and then feeling a little disoriented for a while afterwards but it probably cost less than 30 seconds. Beat Blair again today but still almost a minute down overall. A bit too fast and easy to make much of a move today and I'm still just too slow even when my heart is behaving.
Kept a bit of an eye on the pace of the M40s and concluded that I'll need to get a bit fitter before I'll be ready to move up.

Hoped that today would be my chance to move up a bit but my heart started playing up on the way to the start. I was still fairly determined to finish so just tried to relax and take it really easy walking most of the hills. I hoped I'd be able to read ahead going up the hills and then push the downhills a bit but the heart rate alarm seemed to go off every time I started running (which was always downhill). Started to see Dave Colls from 16 and enjoyed trying to race him to the finish but had to keep backing off a bit and never quite got in front. Felt as though I had been out for hours by half way so I was surprised to get under two hours, felt a lot longer. My main goal for the day was to get ahead of Blair overall. Fell a couple of minutes short but did at least beat him on the day.

Orienteering race 44:18 [3] *** 5.6 km (7:55 / km)
shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 212

Heart was crap. Navigation was ok but it seemed pretty easy, lots of short legs with big features nearby. Lost a bit of time trying to go around green that wasn't really green. Passed Andre about halfway around and was surprised that he didn't come back past or at least stay with me. Felt pretty bad at the last control so the finish split was very slow.

Event: Easter 2013

Orienteering race 23:58 intensity: (1 @1) + (3 @2) + (6 @3) + (9:32 @4) + (14:16 @5) ** 3.92 km (6:07 / km) +54m 5:43 / km
ahr:162 max:197 shoes: Puma Faas 250 Trail

Heart crap, over 180 a minute before the start. Took it pretty easy and wimped out in the bush sections trying to avoid getting scratched. Didn't feel that bad until after I finished but it was a bit disturbing seeing Robbie passed out while having dizzy spells myself. Still quite enjoyed my run. A bit of a surprise to dead heat with tRicky (again) and beat Andre.
