Run race (ParkRun) 20:23 [5] 5.0 km (4:05 / km)
shoes: New Balance

Will didn't get organised quite early enough so I dropped him at the start line while I found a park and ran the 1km back to the start before starting the run proper.... My offical time was 25.53 and a solid 121st place which meant i passed around 150 runners/walkers and a bit of traffic out there and no one else running at my pace so was overall happy with the result.
Then I bought a car.

Cool morning and despite winding back the clocks its still dark at 6am. There was a mist/fog over the AdelUni grounds which looked awesome in the early light.

Cycling (Commute) 45:00 [4]

Cycled up to school to watch pre-season school footy game that I'd rather not comment on other than to say that the programme has regressed further than i thought possible.
Cycle was hard work - uphill (gentle really) and into the wind (slight) - but i felt every rotation of the pedals.

Orienteering race (Mulga Creek) 49:52 [5] *** 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!!

Orienteering Stuff (Control Collecting) 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: Mudclaw

Today I left the water in the creek - while I'm not a wasteful person there was no way it was coming for the walk back with me today. I learnt my lesson the day before.
10 AM

Orienteering race (Tundarri) 1:08:35 [5] *** 6.1 km (11:15 / km) +195m 9:42 / km
spiked:12/13c shoes: Mudclaw

Had an awesome start and was 1st at the 5th control, battled the hills to be 3rd at the 8th control, then had a leg to 9 that saw me claim the Mr Grumpy pants for worse error. Covered 8.3kms so lots of extra distance all attributed to #9. Rest of the run was ok apart from a small wobble to 12. Love running in this terrain!
