Orienteering race 39:02 [5] 2.6 km (15:01 / km)
ahr:161 11c shoes: New Balance 477

SA Champs at Lebanon South. First time I've been to Cape Town.
I had a bad run and made stupid mistakes. I started cautiously but still overshot 2. I battled with distance judgment to 4. My bearing to 7 went wrong so I had to relocate. Somehow I didn't ever see the road between 7 and 8 but got there eventually. I was annoyed after that so I went really slowly to make sure I nailed the last 3. Quite different orienteering in forest again. Salome won in 24 mins.

shoes: Adidas Response

At Wits. Did a star relay, grid thing on the field, compass and pacing and a map memory exercise. It was good to see some maps from Cape Town and we got a few tips about the terrain.

Running (School practice) 20:00 [3]
slept:8.0 shoes: New Balance 472

Did the usual warm up and loop. My legs were sore so I started slowly. They felt better as they warmed up so I picked up the pace towards the end.

Played a cricket match against Benoni High Girls team. We played 15 overs a side. We fielded first. I came onto bowl in the 4th over and took a wicket with my first ball. I then proceeded to bowl 3 wides in a row. My 2nd over went for 7 and my last one went for 2. I fielded at mid off which was hard work. They got 126 runs of which almost half were extras. I batted at no 4. I was in the middle after 3 overs. I managed to stick around for a while and scored 7 runs before being given out lbw which was rather unlucky. We hobbled to 49 all out. Didn't expect a great result as we haven't had much practice but still had tons of fun

Orienteering race 1:19:00 [5] *** 3.9 km (20:15 / km)
ahr:171 max:186 20c shoes: New Balance 477

At Hedianga. Did the blue course. The area suited me because it's slow and very detailed. I took a long time to mark my map and battled to read the red pen. I also fell on my face on the way to 1 but things improved. I made a few small mistakes but otherwise I was pretty accurate. I enjoyed reading the detailed contours, took it slow and remained pretty focused. Was first lady but 20mins behind Ian. Love this map.

Running race (Trail running) 29:49 [4] 4.4 km (6:47 / km)
ahr:174 max:190 shoes: New Balance 477

Salomon Trail run at Jan Smut's house in Irene. Got a rather tired up the hills but managed to keep moving. Really enjoyed the last 500m which was downhill. Nice route and area.
