Orienteering race (SA Champs relay ) 27:30 [5] *** 3.0 km (9:10 / km) +125m 7:35 / km
spiked:13/13c shoes: VJ Twisters

Grabouw, klipdrif river. 1: 5'000.
After my spectacular performances from the previous 2 days ROC was more than willing to loan me out to Witsoc and my plan was to have a nice chilled run...
I ran third leg with Dyaln coming in 2nd and Mike pulling the team up to 1st. I was set off with 3 speed demons on my tail. I went out hard and navigated well. I made no mistakes but by #5 I thought my chest was going to explode. Ike and Jeremy passed me at #4 but I almost caught all 3 of the guys going into #7. So I finished 4th and once again had a great run at the relay...probably one of my best runs of the year! Didn't feel so great afterwards tho.

Orienteering race 1:54:00 [4] *** 9.5 km (12:00 / km)
spiked:20/21c shoes: VJ Twisters

Classic distance, grabouw: klipdrif river.
Was prepared for a long day out and thats exactly what it was. I started nice and steadily. Only mistake of the day was 2min at #7. Bearing was out and there wasn't a lot to work with. Slowed down a lot on the first long leg #9 with the 'run the downs, jog the flats and walk the hills' coming into play. The climb up #12 was nasty - took me 16mins. After that I enjoyed the view...

3 PM

Orienteering race (SA Champs) 37:00 [5] *** 3.5 km (10:34 / km)
ahr:173 max:193 spiked:11/14c slept:6.0 shoes: VJ Twisters

Middle distance, Grabouw: klipdrif river. W21.
Terrible race physically and technically.I didn't really know what to expect from my body and I was very unfocused in the start box. I should have checked the special symbols before I started because that messed me up to #1 big time. I then rushed off to #2 and made a complete fluff of it. Roark (3mins behind) caught me just as I found it. I settled down after that and had fun acing the short legs catching Roark who would bolt off ahead. Hit a wall after #8 and the coughing started. Crawled to the finish.
Nice bit of forest tho.
