Orienteering race (Mulga Creek) 49:52  *** 6.2 km (8:03 / km) +180m 7:01 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: Mudclaw
Thought I had a good first leg but may have been quicker across top of creeks rather than straight line but i spiked the control. Decided leg 1-2 was the downhill leg so smashed down hard while paying particular attention to the compass and spiked it also. Saw Tyson -2mins and Bryn -4 mins at this stage and we zig zagged the rest of the way around. I was out of legs and just couldn't get anything going to break away. It was interesting spectating Tyson's navigation as we clearly had different route choices and attack points, legs 6-7 and 8-9 the most obvious. I made a mistake at 10 as got caught out with the steepness of the cuttings and dropped 30s, but reeled the boys back in and had an ok finish.
It was probably the best run I've had in total, and the pack run was also great fun as we dragged each other around faster than I would have been able to sustain alone. Pretty efficient covering 7.06kms.
The only disappointment was missing the final sledge preso as I went back to the car after Will finished to get changed and missed on seeing where the folks had assembled - fortunately Andrew M saved me a beverage that was enjoyed!!
