Orienteering race 35:05 [5] 3.9 km (9:00 / km)

Canadian middle champs. Pretty tired before i ran but figured it would be another super technical and physical race and that everyone would be tired after yesterday. Found it heaps easier to read with 1:10000 and finally getting the hang of interpreting the contours. Even felt like i could run at race pace. Good run, just a few minor compass wobbles, but far closer to a clean run than i would have expected to be able to do in this terrain. 3rd overall.

Orienteering race 1:49:50 [5] 10.3 km (10:40 / km) +350m 9:07 / km

Canadian long champs. not a WRE, so they made the winning time for W21E the same as M21E... so 90-100mins, which had the makings of a very tough day out. Pretty happy with my run. one decent mistake on the way to 4 where I couldnt interpret the map properly, and not super confident in the first part which was all big negative terrain, steep, thick and low vis (perfect combination for confusing aussies). the second part of the course was more route choice, but heaps of steep climbs. held it together ok, and avoided mistakes in the super vague last loop. really enjoyed this course - I really like classics that take you on a big adventure. ended up 3rd overall, but 12mins behind a finnish girl (who took 10 of those in the first half of the course where I didn;t know what I was doing). one race to go.

Orienteering race 14:50 [5] 2.5 km (5:56 / km)

NAOC sprint. Interesting area with a small tourist village, town blocks and sand dunes. Generally good run but struggled with the overprinting on the map which was very faint and missed a control. Realized at the next one and went back but lost about 30 secs. More than the margin to the win but I think Tori had the same issue. Got pretty tired in the last party of the course trying to run hard in the dunes.
Ended up second overall.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2]

Warm up only. Bailed on warm down as we were heading out for a ride but that didn't happen for ages so i should have done a run

Cycling 2:20:00 [3]

Mtb at Montana mountain at Carcross with Marquita, Martin and Carey. Did the waynes world loop. Big climb but great views and an awesome downhill run. Very tired by the end. Enormous icecream in carcross afterwards.

Orienteering race 16:00 [4]

Naoc relay. First leg in a team with Liggo and Blair. Short easy courses around a biathlon area that also had an archery range. Half the controls were on fake animal targets. It was a bit odd. Fun run.

Cycling 1:30:00 [3]

Arvo mtb on the grey mountain trails (north of the road) with Marquita. Great trails but my legs were bit tired.

Orienteering race 46:16 [5] 4.0 km (11:34 / km)

NAOC middle. Another tough area, similar to the end of yesterday but with a few more identifiable features to work with. Very tired from yesterday and decided to take it super carefully and avoid losing time. Mostly managed that. Just a couple of mid leg wobbles getting pushed around by green, but every control was where i expected it to be... quite an improvement on yesterday. Even got into a bit of race mode at the end.

Orienteering race 1:39:40 [5] 9.0 km (11:04 / km)

NAOC long. Super tough race, mainly physically for the first part and then a crazy hard loop at the end. Lost fair chunks of time on 2 controls and a few smaller mistakes but it was a hard dayfor everyone and finished 5th overall. Happy to have survived.
