Orienteering 43:17  5.1 km (8:29 / km)
Aus middle champs, Lover's Ridge, 11th.
Mostly happy with the run - felt like I was moving really quickly in the spur/gully at the start, but splits don't really reflect that. Although I did gain a bunch of places on the long leg to 6 (only to lose them again, grrr). Struggled running a bit from 6-12 given it was so rocky underfoot, but was pretty clean.
Missed 14 - I think I didn't check my compass (or map) again after going around a big tree. Lost 2.20 according to AP on 18, the spectator control. Got really confused by other controls in the area, and the other start (thinking it was the one on our map, but then nothing making sense). Rachel caught me here, and Katelyn caught back up to me and pushed me further up the hill to the control after I was completely baffled. Really annoyed with this mistake!
Held it together for the last loop though, and got 2nd fastest split on the uphill leg to the last control. Happy with how I was running and was feeling good, so it was a bit frustrating to make such a rookie error!
