Orienteering race 1:12:39  **** 8.9 km (8:10 / km) +295m 7:00 / km
Messed up first two controls, then had a decent section, but after about 15 minutes, my shins and calves started hurting soooo badly. Don't know if this is growing pains or what, but i had them at events last year too. I ran through the pain, but probably lost about 4 minutes in speed. After maybe 6km, the pain suddenly went and I found some speed and navigated very well until the finish. I reckon 64 would have been a great run for me, 72 is decent. When I left, was 6th on Brown, Matt Crane on 54, Mike B on 65 and Quentin on 68. Pretty happy with that, but not how far I was behind Mike. I suppose my mistakes and painful middle section were the difference.
