Orienteering 38:07 [5] *** 6.5 km (5:52 / km)
shoes: Inov8 x talon 212 #2

NOY 2 at Hawkemount. thought i'd picked up the wrong map when i saw the first control was essentially a blue control, but it really set up the second leg well. no troubles through the first section and was running hard. lost 30 secs on the very short leg to 12 as i went up the wrong creek. next few were good but began to get a bit sloppy regarding height, was often too low for controls. got away with this for controls 18 and 19 without a great deal of loss, but missed 20 in the green and hit the next watercourse over, losing a further 30 secs. really tired in the legs to the finish from the last few days. ended up 20 secs behind josh which i can't really be too unhappy about. adapted to the 1:7500 scale pretty well i thought. distance logged is a estimate of real distance, course length was 5.6

Running race 17:37 [5] 5.0 km (3:31 / km)
shoes: Nike Free Run +3 (blue/red)

newy parkrun. only got there just before again so no time for warm up which i regretted early on, and also legs were feeling the burn of yesterdays hills. couldn't hold on the the pace of the lead pack and let them go. but after a while the gap between us was pretty constant, and on the return i was steadily closing. had a good battle with one bloke and finally kicked past him in the last km which must have been too much for him because he promptly cracked and started walking. finished in 5th only seconds behind 2nd, 3rd and 4th (1st won by a mile). kinda annoyed as the 2 blokes just ahead used to run around 21 mins not that long ago and now they're pulling 17:30's. its almost enough motivation to get me training properly again

Running warm up/down 15:00 [3] 2.8 km (5:21 / km)
shoes: Nike Free Run +3 (blue/red)

felt like i should actually do a warm down this week

Orienteering race 49:37 [5] 9.1 km (5:27 / km)
shoes: Nike Free Run +3 (blue/red)

Easter Day 3. Would have loved to wear my garmin today to get a k rate for actual distance covered. No mistakes really but could have run a straighter line to some controls. 14th today and due to mispunches I managed to come 13th overall which I'm happy with especially for my first Easter in 21E.

Also driving bendigo to newy is a bloody long way!
