Orienteering race (Big Foot Sprint Leg 1) 17:53 [5] *** 3.1 km (5:46 / km) +60m 5:16 / km
ahr:165 max:172 spiked:8/10c shoes: Inov-8 Mudclaw 333


Race 1, first run in new Inov-8 Mudclaw 333
started out pretty clean 1-4, lost the track after the gully towards 5 but hit the top track so didn't lose too much
lost 10 seconds on 6, went 1 track too far
contoured straight to to 7 and cut straight to 8 with no issues.
took the northern track to 9 which I think lost 20-30 seconds (more climb?)
got confused towards 10, saw the control but didn't think it was it so ran the track a little further .. lost 25 seconds

shoes went well, was running with no ankle brace and didn't get sore feet from lack of extra padding (have been running with extra gel insoles since the pain of the nosh race)

was happy to get 3rd, wasn't expecting to be too competitive after 4 games of Ultimate the previous day, but thought a 20 min run was perfect to try the new shoes I ordered from UK on Monday night.
11 AM

Orienteering race (Big Foot Sprint Leg 2) 19:31 [5] *** 3.17 km (6:09 / km) +90m 5:23 / km
ahr:169 max:182 spiked:15/18c shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 340


First run of my new Inov-8 Oroc 340 (yes I got 2 new pairs of different shoes .. wanted to make sure at least one would be suitable)

started as the only person not wearing pink in the first 7 starters

Saw the first 2 runners taking the track, but the map told me to jump up to the oval, made up a little time on Paul as he lead the way to #1, saw him leave the control in the wrong direction so I figured we had different loops, was low on #2 but found Patrik had done the same and was just behind him on #2

Hit the looping track around 3 and 4, I was a little lower, saw Patrik appear to go straight through the bush, I followed north to 3, Patrik took the W loop past 4 and we hit 3 about the same time.
Followed path to 4, with little between us, took slightly different paths to 5, where we almost collided trying to join a single track at the same time, I slowed down a little giving him a 10 seconds advantage out of 5.
Track to 6 where Partik took a left fork towards 7, so I took the lead at #6 but saw him racing with some serious pace into 6 and out that my lead vanished within seconds ...

Patrik took a path towards 7 which I thought was an earlier one so I ended up hitting 8 first, but was looking for 7, lost 25-30 seconds, but also lost sight of Patrik, never to be seen again :)

9-15 were clean, but hit some green out of 9 and struggled with the hill.
running to 16 and thinking this was the last control, read the number but it didn't match the last control on the map .. lost 50 seconds and much more dignity since this was the spectator control !!! before I realised that it was control 16 not 18 !!!

I think I was overtaken by Shingo (but I saw it as been overtaken by someone in pink and black, so it didn't matter who) I had adrenaline pumping, and was thinking clearly now so I tried to belt though the last 2 controls to overtake them, we hit 17 together, then I bashed my way to 18 first . then finished with not too many people before me ..

well done to Patrik!

ahr:163 max:177 shoes: Asics Gel - Trabuco 13

Run same loop as last week with Amanda. slight detour for drink.

went without ankle brace, felt much better

My preferred shoe (New Balance) has a broken shoelace eyelet, I ordered some inov-8's as a replcement, my Asics can give me a sore foot :( started to feel some discomfort at the end of the run.

walked the last steep hill (just before the end of Busaco Rd) but had a good run for the rest.
1 PM
