Heaps of strapping tape on my ankle but it was pretty tender. Sore enough warming up that I decided it wasn’t worth it and I just hoped I would notice it less once I had a map to focus on.
Ginger, tentative and slow through the first 3, missed my attack point on 4 but repeated yesterday’s folly and had a crack anyway, only to bail back out to the track, actually locate my attack point, then confidently navigate my way straight in. Pity I dropped 4 minutes in the process. Picked up Ben Schulz here and the pace lifted, increasing again when Brice joined the party a couple of controls later. Tried to do my own thing as much as possible, but there was a fair bit of checking that I knew where I was so I wouldn’t be lost when the elastic band snapped rather than truly independent orienteering. Pretty sure I only led Bruce (and Damien Enderby) into one control. Fell off the back at the second last one and jogged it home with one trip and somersault in the finish chute. 4th today, 6th overall. Less than a minute behind tRicky over 3 days.
