orienteering race (Monash Uni sprint) 17:51 [4] 3.1 km (5:45 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Race with which I was reasonably happy even though I didn't identify all the blocked routes on the way to the first control and so went right when left would have been better. Incidentally, Monash is completely unrecognisable from when I last ran here over 10 years ago. Think I took the longer way around 8-9 too. But otherwise this felt pretty smooth and I enjoyed it a lot because I like uni campuses (campii?) and it was still a coolish morning despite the forecast 35 degrees. Also I was well fueled because my avocado toast for breakfast had been accompanied by bonus jalapeno chillies.

orienteering race (Caulfield Grammar sprint) 22:27 [4] 3.1 km (7:15 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

...which it reached, @5pm, and even though I figured I'd had plenty of acclimatisation in an Adelaide summer, my brain was maybe still a bit cooked (and also my hip hadn't liked spending the intervening time in an OA Board meeting) and this was a very intricate school campus where somehow I failed to see that the outside route 4-5 had no way back in to the kindergarten so then had to run all the way around the fence/wall to get in, losing about a minute. By the time we crossed into the other school, legs were cooked too, so this was a fairly awful time for a WRE of which I'd had some slight optimism about doing okay. Ended up getting some extra weight training in when collecting controls - it turns out that I can not carry 4 sawhorses at once!
