Not gonna fill in the amount of controls spiked haha, that'll be a joke.

Awesome to run here again, as always the first day running here is a challenge. I've never gone in with the right orienteering mode switched on. 1 and 2 were shaky. 3 was a big miss, like a minute there. Wasted about 30 seconds not knowing what to do then smashed it to the road to relocate. 4 was the big miss of the day, lost like 3 minutes. Bearings were horrible the whole day, compass is really important hear. In the area at 4 and smashed it to the road again to relocate (hard work doing this) 5 was slow but decent, 6 was alright, used features well for the first time. 7 and 8 were slow but ok. 9 was quality, probs the easiest control of the day so smashed it all the way, couldv had a better route, but bearing lead me wrong. 10,11,12 were slow but fine, 13 used the ditch and found it ok. 14 pushed hard up the hill, bearing was bad for the first half of the leg tho. 15 stuffed around, 16 bad bearing, 17 fine.

Got the win at least but couldv got under 30 easy. Keen for tomorrow! Is under 60 min possible? We'll see :P

Went and ran the Womens Final from the Sprint cup at Pretoria Botanical Gardens,

Thought I was running the prelim, so took it chilledish, was gonna go hard on the final. but then I finished and realised I'd printed out 2 copies of the Final :/ haha. Didn't make any mistakes, just hesitations.

So then just ran around for another 5 minutes on the tricky paths. was pretty tired from yesterday tho. At least I still have the women's prelim for another wednesday.

Running 25:00 [3] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: New Balance 890 revlite

run to groenkloof then back, then some warming up and dynamic stretching at LC
6 PM

Running race 10:02 [5] 3.0 km (3:21 / km)

3rd TimeTrial of the year..

Kind of stuffed this one up a bit.. The amazing groenkloof track was getting painted, so had to run at LC in the dark.

Started off like a toss, was 2 seconds slower than my target split after only 200 metres, so was playing catch up the whole time. felt like I kept on speeding up then slowing down. running by urself is shiity, at least I had my control description holder with my target splits to share the run with.

Bleak I didn't get under 10. Still a new PB tho.. but that's not saying much for me and 3000. 6 weeks till the next one, going for 9:30 :D gonna be interesting! Loads of speed work to do.

Felt like kak, was meant to do double the time but once I got up Cowley, I decided to head back.

Was as if I couldn't have gone faster if I tried. At least I got up Cowley Road.
