10 AM

Orienteering race (Metro 3) 47:52 [4] 5.0 km (9:34 / km)
shoes: Inov-8 Mudclaw 333

rushed start ..
trying to start before 10am
forgot to clear and check .. try again .. GPS didn't get a signal until 5 mins into run
managed to get to 1 without too much trouble but head wasn't in it, lucky I didn't lose much time.
going to #2 took the right track then navigated from a different part of the map .. lost probably 50 secs
#3 starting to feel normal ..
#5-6 missed obvious track, took the one further south, some backtracking so lost time
#8 went different way to avoid other people .. lost a little time

not a great day ...
12 PM

Orienteering race (Moonlight Madness 2) 47:20 [4] 7.68 km (6:10 / km) +115m 5:44 / km
ahr:155 max:167 shoes: New Balance

rain + night = fun (or increased difficulty for the sane people)

found navigation was a bit harder, lost about 2 minutes on 2 controls searching for them :(

felt I was running a little slow - the rain probably helped with this as it made me careful and also kept me feeling cool and fresh, felt my right hammie tighten up about 1/2 way and eased off for a few mins..

slipped and tripped at the end due to poor light + embankment and rocks poking out of tracks!

got the lot but was 2 to 3 mins late .. I think I probably would have beaten the 45 mins if it was day + dry ..

glad I went and didn't chicken out and go home :)

Orienteering (control collect) 11:36 [3] 1.21 km (9:35 / km) +20m 8:51 / km
ahr:130 max:152 shoes: New Balance

offered to pick up 5 controls since I was one of the last people there, and it didn't look like they had lots of helpers ..

really wanted to get back to the car and get dry, but once I got running it was good to be out again :)

Ultimate was called off so I had the time to stay.
