Orienteering - Rogaine (Lane Cove) 5:57:29 [3] 34.47 km (10:22 / km)

Lane Cove Rivergaine II.
With a friend Nicolle (who has never done a Rogaine before) and Coady http://attackpoint.org/log.jsp/user_10513
Camelbak packed with ice water and hydrolite powder, snacks and gels ready.
From Orienteering

Arrived at 8:30 am. Got a park basically directly opposite the start!
I taped up my ankles (which is a first) rather than attempting to run for 6 hours in heavy ankle guards and this worked very well. Could feel the extra support especially a few times with small ankle rolls out on tracks.
My longest run in over a year and I was pleasantly surprised how I held up.

Also my first experience today taking running gels ... some of which were very appetising. Refilled 2 litre camelback twice so went through more than 5 litres of water. Glad it was only 28 degrees rather than 40 degrees like on Thursday!

Stopped for a 20 minute lunch and planning break just prior to Control #32.
Stopped for icecreams from Shop just after Control #40.

First hour
Approx 6 km. Up to Control #61 (500 points)

Second hour
Approx 12 km. Up to Control #42 (960 points)

Third Hour
Approx 17 km. Up to Control #66 (1250 points due to lunch)

After that I lost my piece of paper I was recording on!

All of our respective watches / phones recorded differing distances between 29 and 34.5 km. I included my recorded distance.

Team of 3 functioned well as all carrying injuries. We all seemed to take turns motivating the others to jog versus run. Coady and Nicolle pushed me harder in the last hour and included a detour to get #51, #60 and #34 which I probably wouldn't have bothered with if solo as I was tired. So thanks to both of them for that.


NOTE TO FUTURE SELF :
If > 3 hours take the 3 litre camelbak!!

7 AM

Gardening - General 40:00 [2]
(injured)

Time fill whilst getting pest inspection done on house.
Learnt that a borrowed petrol powered hedge trimmer makes very quick work of long hedges by just walking along and slicing through it.
However its 5 kg plus weight makes it very tiring so I had to alternate between cutting and picking up trimmings.

Painter starts inside tomorrow!
Good bye to 5 years of inherited sickly feature walls of black, orange, pink, blue and red.
Looking forward to moving my furniture back around the lounge room so I can sit down and walk through various rooms properly !
