Orienteering race 44:50 [5] 5.61 km (8:00 / km) +125m 7:12 / km
shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw 300 Red/Blue

H1 at Warranine Brook Middle Distance Champs.

Bit later to the start than hoped but only a few minutes in it. Started very cautiously, figuring that it could all go pear shaped in that first group of controls. Hit the first 5 quite cleanly, if a little slowly. Took the left hand fence run to 6 which seemed the better option. A few elephant trails in some areas meant the late start had a bit of help.

Started feeling like the concentration might be wavering into 10, but hit that cleanly too. Smashed up to 12 and then map in pocket up to 13 as I had seen it on the way to 10. From there on straight seemed the best option and that's pretty much what I did.

Saw Sten in the distance on the way to 17 and then at 17, although that threw me a bit as I thought he was heading out of the control when he was actually heading towards it on the other end of the cliff I was on. Complete fail on seeing the fence option to 18 and ended up checking the rocks too early.

Figured that had cost me the chance of catching Sten, but saw him at 20 and then just went balls out for the rest of the course.

Great course, enjoyed it from start to finish. Thanks Juffles!

H1 Umuna

One of my favourite maps and really enjoyed the run today. Managed to see the eagle in its nest in between 11 and 12 and a bee hive coming out of 17.

Only felt like one real error today - lost contact on the way to 15. Managed to find a control in the vaguest of a gullies and then pick where that would be and went back to my control.

Not feeling overly fast and had a few coughing fits too. Being only 22 minutes behind fenry was closer than I thought it would be.
