orienteering race (Yarra Valley Grammar) 19:22 [4] 3.1 km (6:15 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

So, I had pulled together a veterans' Arrows team for the mixed sprint relay, originally consisting of Zara, Ben, Ruhi and myself, although due to Ben's sprained ankle David George had to be subbed in. I had kind of figured that as 4th & last runner, I'd probably be running by myself, but since juniors were on the same course, I kept seeing Remi through the middle part of the course although it turned out that he'd already done a loop which I still had to do. This race was enjoyable - fun to be part of a team and good to be able to watch the top placings unfold before I went out myself!

orienteering race (Kurunjang Schools sprint) 16:58 [4] 3.0 km (5:39 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

After visiting Hania & family for lunch, I wasn't desperate to do another race, and my hip hurt in the warmup but I reminded myself how I always enjoy it when I get out there - and I did, although think I was running a bit too reactively rather than proactively so although it seems like my time was ok (generally about 3 min behind Bridget for most races, although no NOL points because there are too many junior girls) it hides quite a lot of inefficiencies. Definitely a great weekend of races which I really enjoyed although can see I have a lot of work to do before WMOC, especially because the final around Christianshavn will be quite macro, I think, so the speed I don't have becomes more important.
