MTB 27:15 [3] 6.74 km (14.8 kph) +84m
shoes: Sidi MTB

Really nice ride to work. Warm enough despite the fog. Quite a few kangaroos grazing near the powerlines just after crossing into BM.
4 PM

MTB 37:41 [3] 7.43 km (11.8 kph) +168m
shoes: Sidi MTB

Not the commute proper. Tried to be too smart for my own good, thinking I'd avoid one of the hills, but the gravel firetrail I was expecting turned out the be the concrete path and that was pretty steep! only just made it home before dark. Trying not to be dependent on lights as that would just be another excuse not to ride when really there should be none. Beautiful out!

Orienteering 16:55 [3] 2.38 km (7:06 / km) +10m 6:57 / km
shoes: Kayano - narrow ones

Surprisingly enjoyable sprint. I was never a fan of driving further away this morning, but it wasn't that far really. The sprint was good fun too (in hindsight). Quite difficult reading the map and which control was which - lost my placee many times! I was caught out early with no passage through many long buildings. Once I understood that theme I took a lot of care. Was always aware of being slow reading map and moving. Only a couple of real mistakes - 3 I was on the wrong side of an impassable piece of tape - took a while to find way around..., 9 I got ahead of myself and ran into a dead end, 12 I read carefully to make sure I took the direct route to stairs top, but then spotted the control on other side of garden bed so had to run around. Was surprised the finish was only a couple more easy controls from there and tried to run hard to the finish. It was enough to overtake Linda who had been ahead the whole course, but Barbara was deservedly way further in front.

Orienteering 46:55 [3] 6.2 km (7:34 / km) +103m 6:59 / km
shoes: VJ Irock 2

A much better day today, after I missed a few min on the first. Enjoyed it, surprisingly. Was feeling very slow in running but managed to be accurate. 2 common legs with Aoife, she beat me on both.

Spent much of the course tagging along Alex Davey's coat-tails. We went completely different ways on the long leg and arrived at the control a few seconds apart 16 minutes later... Worked out afterwards that he had caught me 2 minutes at the first control. I got a bit of that back on the last control as he went very low. I was worried I was too high as a consequence but also ended up slightly below it.

Orienteering 43:54 [3] 4.28 km (10:15 / km) +95m 9:14 / km

A great place to run and I did not do it justice. Too many errors and not concentrating today. Went well on the few legs for which I had my brain turned on. Paid for it when my brain switched off.

Once more checking. One way trip after Eoin dropped me at the far side. Nice out especially as the day warmed up. Was a bit hard to walk into the shady areas early....
