Orienteering race (Sydney Summer Series 14) 45:32 [4] 7.92 km (5:45 / km)

Lane Cove National Park
Given this is our stamping ground a event not to be missed despite having just finished the Xmas 5 days. Difficult to choose the best route so I opted for the sub-optimal bush route taking the path along the north side of the river. Only real mistake was to do 4 on the way to 27 rather than at the start as meant unnecessary climb. A bit of bush bashing took me straight from 27 to 2 (unplanned). Finished with 410 which wasn't too bad given there where far better routes that involved more street running. Legs shot so a few days rest are in order.

Orienteering race (Xmas 5 Days - Day 5) 37:02 [4] 5.21 km (7:06 / km)

Macquarie Woods North
Started at the same time as Rob Vincent who was on the B loop. I was slower through the loops but caught Robon the way to 9, we ran head to head to 14 (which was in the wrong place) with me the faster but Rob the more accurate. Pulled out a gap on the way to 18 then promptly blew it on 19 (still not sure what happened but ended up to the SE) and gave away over 2 minutes to finish 4th on the day and 3rd overall for the 5 days after Rob & Undy. Great 5 days of orienteering; good maps, good weather & great competition.

Orienteering race (Xmas 5 Days - Day 4) 36:38 [4] 4.66 km (7:52 / km)

Ophir South
If attackpoint splits can be believed no time losses despite a few wobbles here and there. Pleased to get the fastest split for the brutal climb up to 9, the first control in the gold mining. 4th overall.

Orienteering race (Xmas 5 Days - Day 3) 51:26 [4] 6.05 km (8:30 / km)

Rocky Falls
OK run despite with time losses on 3 (overshot to south - not the only one), 4 (overshot and hit rocks to the east) and 5 where I hit the gully but didn't see the control so started heading downhill before realising what I was doing. Was pleased to have the fasted split to 11 which I approached along the track to the south before doubling back into the control.

Orienteering race (Xmas 5 Days - Day 2) 40:55 [4] 5.57 km (7:21 / km)

Kahli's Rock
Very kind route setting avoiding the worst of the rocks. A lot of running through the open before dipping in for a control then out again. Lost time on 6 like a lot of people trying to find the right thicket, steady down to 8 to avoid being tripped up then fast through the paddocks and rocks on the way back (3 fastest legs). Very pleased with my second place.

Orienteering race (Xmas 5 Days - Day 1 ) 15:36 [4] 2.96 km (5:16 / km)

Charles Sturt Uni - Orange Campus
Tricky little sprint making good use of the area which I failed miserably. Put off by the track through the olive being obsured by the circle at 3 and the subsequent 2 times I had to go this way. Became totally disoriented leaving 6 and headed straight to 3 (that bloody path again) thinking it was 7, rather than continuing around the building to 7 I headed back towards 6 before cutting between the building. Lost nearly 2 mins on this leg so game over despite 3 fastest legs after it as I tried to make up time.
