Orienteering race (Big Foot Sprints race 1) 19:19 [5] *** 3.24 km (5:57 / km) +32m 5:41 / km
spiked:16/19c shoes: Asics Gel Nimbus 14 white/gold

Part 1 of fun races at Sydney Uni. A reasonable first half then overshot 10 and lost 15 seconds then silly error after punching 13 (also 5) on the bridge when I headed back to 4 instead of 14, losing another 30 seconds. Missed the shorter route to the last control, with another 15 seconds gone.
5 PM

Orienteering race (Big Foot Sprints race 2) 17:17 [5] 2.94 km (5:52 / km) +12m 5:45 / km
spiked:16/17c shoes: Asics Gel Nimbus 14 white/gold

Chasing start for 2nd race and made a combined big error on the 1st control, firstly missing the short route across the oval and then heading down the wrong lane. At least 1:20 gone here. The remainder were good right through to 15 when I took the longer inside route and then again managed to miss the short route to the last one.

Really enjoyed the event on a great map. Thanks Oing in particular for the courses and BigFoot for the event!

Running 25:49 [3] 4.63 km (5:34 / km) +63m 5:13 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Nimbus 14 white/gold

Latish run to avoid the heat and turned out nice although gusty SW head wind for much of the run.

Running 33:00 [3] 6.5 km (5:05 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel Nimbus 14 white/gold

Same run as last Tuesday except this time I felt under-dressed...I forgot my GARMIN!! So time is a guestimate and distance is from last week. Run was good even considering the warmth (23-24C). Nothing like what's expected Thursday however when they are forecasting 35C.

"Rest" day: almost 5 hours at home in the garden, mainly mowing and edging lawns and then brush cutting the masses of long grass and weeds on the crown road at the back of our block. At least there were no snake sightings!

Orienteering race (Australian Relays) 56:56 [5] 5.98 km (9:31 / km) +261m 7:49 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 350

Back at "The Gib" for the Aust Relays. Lucky to be picked in the #1 NSW M55 team with Rob V and Oing. They ran great 1st and 2nd legs leaving me about 5 minutes ahead of the Vics 3rd runner (Geoff Lawford!). I had my doubts that was going to be enough and messing up #1 big time confirmed my fears. Long leg and tracked it well almost to the circle then lost map contact and stuffed around for 8 to 10 minutes before I finally got it - Garmin route tells the sad story! Was determined to do better from then on, pushed hard and no mistakes but damage was done. Geoff ran a blinder and I would not have held him out even with a clean run but frustrating just the same.
