cycling 50:00 [3] 16.26 km (3:05 / km) +229m 2:52 / km

Raining again on the way in - need some better drying strategies at work, although at least I have the server room working now as a dryer.

ultimate 1:00:00 [3] 5.6 km (10:43 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (#3)

Games 1 & 2 of the Autumn Hat.

Kept the intensity low, played about 60% of the points, looks like we have quite a good team. One of our "beginners" is an ex-soccer player who has been watching hours of ultimate videos, and played like a gun.

Two games, two wins.

run 10:00 [3] 1.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (#3)

Run to start, aiming to go through normal start procedure and get a a regular feel for my run.
9 AM

orienteering race 47:36 intensity: (32:00 @3) + (15:36 @4) 6.45 km (7:23 / km) +171m 6:31 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (#3)

NSW Champs - the long

Pick up map - long, long leg to first control (2+km).
Ran myself into the map and was pretty happy with route, speed and navigation, only to arrive and find.... wrong control code. Pottered frantically with no joy, relocating off the pipeline track before deciding to check descriptions on the map.... Doh ! what a screw up someone has made, different control code... aha, actually different course.

So, give up or go and restart ?
Decide that if I jog back the flat way I've got enough in the tank to go with the right map.
10 AM

orienteering race 58:33 [4] ***** 8.15 km (7:11 / km) +167m 6:31 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (#3)

NSW Long champs take #2

Realise that I can't thrash myself. Good route to #1, then mess up very close to the control. Navigate in perfectly, see control in small gully just before it, then must have lost concentration, losing a couple of minutes here (GPS suggests 3+). Then fairly good, enjoying the long navigation, knowing that if I go steady, I can still place.

Lost contact on the penultimate long leg and had to stand still for a bit to relocate.

For final long leg I abandoned my chosen route to just bash out the ridge route to get the easier navigation. Seems to have been a faster route anyway.

1st in M50, but beaten by Josh Blatchford who dropped down to run sledge.

orienteering race 37:30 [3] **** 5.0 km (7:30 / km) +100m 6:49 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (#3)

NSW Middle Champs.
Not really in a good mind for it, rushing straight from results. Missed #1,#2, last and didn't really get into a groove.

Great course though and I really enjoyed it. Deservedly beaten into 4th in M50 and flogged on the course overall.

run 12:00 [3] 1.4 km (8:34 / km)
