Running warm up/down 40:00 [3] 7.0 km (5:43 / km)
shoes: Nike Zoom Waffle Racer

Warm-up and drills before Sprint race then short cooldown after drug test.

Orienteering race (Australian Sprint Champs) 14:08 [5] *** 3.4 km (4:09 / km)
spiked:20/23c shoes: Nike Zoom Waffle Racer

A solid effort, disappointingly lost 15 seconds on the second leg after failing to find the line from control 1 to 2 and instead following the line from the last control towards the finish, by the time I had found the second control i had already missed the turn and had to take a very long alternative route. The rest of the course was pretty good with only one marginally slower route choice and a little bit hesitant on the legs in the greener area at the top of the map. Felt like I should have pushed myself harder in the middle stages of the race. In any case best sprint result since the Easter prologue in 2005 and should be faster and cleaner next time.

Running warm up/down 30:00 [2] 5.0 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: Silva K120

Warm up and cool down for NOL race at Peterdine. Stomach still wasn't feeling 100% but i had to have a go before the sprint race on Thursday.

Orienteering race (NOL race) 44:30 [5] **** 8.1 km (5:30 / km)
shoes: Silva K120

Fun race but didn't quite get into it. Was too messy especially for this fast terrain, lost 20-30 seconds on each of the first three legs and 5-10 seconds on plenty of others. Highlight of the race was running into a control to find Jimbo blocking me from punching and telling me it was the wrong control (it wasn't), somehow that seemed to help and I ran more cleanly for the next few legs and finished strongly on the last loop. Happy that my stomach didn't cause me any major problems so i should be right for the coming races.

Barefoot running, drills and cooldown with Kelly at McGillvray Ovals. My stomach was not great but much better than Saturday and Sunday.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 4.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Puma Complete Trailfox

Warm up for Day 2 of WA Champs, stomach felt worse and worse as I continued running. After stopping twice on the warm-up to go to the toilet and cramps getting worse I abandoned all hope of being able to complete the course and walked back to the assembly area without starting.

Running warm up/down 30:00 [2] 4.0 km (7:30 / km)
shoes: Silva K120

Warm-up and drills for Day 1 of the WA State Champs. Felt pretty good until ominously my stomach started feeling uneasy just before I started.

Orienteering race (WA State Champs Day 1) 59:14 [4] 8.6 km (6:53 / km)
shoes: Silva K120

Hmm, just a little bit too long for a Middle race and not a good day for me to have to run further. Lost 2 minutes on dodgy control no 2. but then regrouped and orienteered okay for the rest of the course. Main problem was bad stomach which kept on getting worse from around 1/3 of the way around the course. Repeatedly had to stop to go to the toilet and could only jog around the final loop. Was very surprised with placing (5th) considering but was miles off the pace of Grant, Rob and Julian.

Running (Beach Run) 40:00 [2] 5.0 km (8:00 / km)
shoes: Puma Complete Trailfox

Running, drills, run-throughs, water running, swimming and then more running. Most of the running was barefoot on the sand, was great to do the drills and sprints along the beach felt really nice. Water was BEAUTIFUL! still it was about 30 deg here today, I'm sure it might have felt a bit chilly with a 20 knot seabreeze. Only downside was getting getting stung by a stinger when I was swimming, I thought they weren' t arriving until later in the week!
