OMG, it took me an hour to get from work to the SE corner of the city (lately the traffic bottlenecks engendered by Flinders Uni students and FMC staff all leaving simultaneously mean that it takes 20 min just from getting in the car to reaching Sturt Rd 1km away - there are even queues within the multistorey carpark - but also it turns out that Adelaide comes to a standstill when 65 000 people go to an Ed Sheeran concert). So I really needed to pee, and just plodded around, having a lot of trouble getting in and out of the dry creek channels and ending up stuck in a thicket on the other side each time.

orienteering (SE CBD) 29:11 [3] 3.0 km (9:44 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Have been fairly stressed lately by all the rogaine-organising, and my usual trick of being able to switch that off and focus on the map didn't work very well tonight, so for this course around the streets and laneways I did (at least) 2 dumb things:
- misunderstood a couple of Manu's control descriptions and convinced myself that he had set an exercise for us where the descriptions were deliberately wrong, so then I ignored them all!
- went down the wrong street, but I made everything fit, so did a massive parallel error and then had to go around the entire block again; extra distance my tired legs didn't need.
