8 AM

Cycling 4:28:57 [3] 95.15 km (21.2 kph) +720m
shoes: Scott Yecora

Cycled from Rainbow Lodge to Lakenvlei for the Long O and then on to Lydenburg via the tar road through Dullstroom. Luckily mostly downhill as my legs were stuffed from the Long O...
9 AM

Orienteering race (Big 5 Long O) 2:28:19 [4] *** 15.0 km (9:53 / km) +300m 8:59 / km
spiked:15/28c shoes: Asics Gel Trail Sensor 5

Long O at Lakenvlei. With such a long distance, I was worried about making the 3-hour cutoff so paced myself cautiously to ensure I had energy throughout. Mostly dead-straight route choices and really started getting into the flow of forest orienteering on this race. Major mistakes at #2 and #14, otherwise just small mistakes in the circle. Made it with a good 30 mins to spare.

5 AM

Mountain Biking 3:19:38 [3] 64.79 km (19.5 kph) +675m
shoes: Scott Yecora

Ride with Kev along the gravel roads to Dullstroom for the O organised by AR Club and back along the tar road, racing the stroms @ 30km/h.
10 AM

Orienteering race (Big 5 Urban Middle) 55:57 [4] *** 5.6 km (9:59 / km) +130m 8:57 / km
spiked:9/16c shoes: Asics Gel Trail Sensor 5

The 2nd race of the Big 5 O week was in Dullstroom with fast and long running legs through town for the first half, followed by a technical 2nd half through the Bluegum forests. I was relatively slow on the running legs but minimised my mistakes in the forest to end up with my best result for the week (other than the sprint). Enjoyed the run once I could catch my breath again in the forests.

7 AM

Mountain Biking 3:03:00 [3] 48.0 km (15.7 kph) +780m
shoes: Scott Yecora

Cycled from Waterval Boven to Lakenvlei and back along the road to the event centre for the first race of the Big 5 O week. Fun ride into Lakenvlei.
2 PM

Orienteering race (Big 5 Middle Distance) 59:17 [4] *** 6.0 km (9:53 / km) +95m 9:09 / km
spiked:14/20c shoes: Asics Gel Trail Sensor 5

First race of the Big 5 O week and my first ever forest run. The pit at #1 had me off to a superb start with loads of grid searching. Made sure I slowed it down after that and focussed on ticking off features along my planned routes which helped. Very slow in the terrain and we all got caught in a massive lightning & hail storm for the 2nd half of my race. 15 & 16 out of the forest on the boulder outcrops were pretty scary...

5 AM

Mountain Biking 5:12:03 [4] 76.72 km (14.8 kph) +1445m
shoes: Scott Yecora

The plan was to cycle from Nelspruit to Waterval Boven, mostly off-road and ascending the escarpment twice. Turns out my MTB fitness and heat tolerance was lacking somewhat and I eventually limped into Kaapsehoop after a beast of a climb up the back of the Berlin plantations. With 80km to go, I decided a lift was in order and bombed down to Ngodwana, from where Seth took me the rest of the way to Boven.

Max speed 70.7km/h down the tar to Ngodwana :)
