spiked:17/22c weight:77kg shoes: Inov8 XTalon 190

Bicentennial Park, West Pymble. Okm 2.7. 10th. Found the hills tough. Took a while to find the start triangle and no. 1 (10 seconds) and by the time I did I had kind of stumbled on to the left hand route. Didn't see the right hand option which was 20 seconds faster, so by no. 1 I was 14th, 24 seconds behind the leader, Undy, with Shingo in 2nd place. Not sure about having such a decisive choice as the first one, but otherwise this was a very good course and map.
Lost 5 seconds on the fine navigation required for #4 and another 5-10 dithering about which way to go to #5. Went right to #12 and thought I was losing time, but it looks OK on the splits. In fact I had a pretty good run from 5 to 17, pulling up to 7th place. Lost that on the last hill up to to 18 and then was pushed off line to 19 (-5). Saved the worst for last with a terrible error on #20. Completely failed on the direction and lost 30 seconds searching the bush. A little bit of reading ahead instead of running at 3 mins per k (!) around the playground would have helped. Amazingly AP doesn't think I made a mistake on that one!

5 PM

Teering race (Sydney Summer) 49:00 [4] 7.99 km (6:08 / km) +122m 5:42 / km
shoes: Saucony HP 12, Blue

Hunts Creek, Carlingford. 450 pts, poor run. Set off in hot conditions at 5pm - 35 degrees. It cooled down a bit but humidity rose and I was feeling it in the last half. Lost 1:30 climbing a locked gate after 2 controls - it was open before and later on when it was reported - overzealous security operative? Struggled around but lost 2 minutes unnecessarily when I found an unmapped track (why do I get derailed by these things?) and then lost another 2 minutes leaving the track 10m early and not seeing the monster pylon the control was on. So I should have been back early rather than 4 minutes late (-40 pts). A mad final sprint saw me get in with one second to spare or it would have been another 10 point penalty. Lost to Steve Flick - 460 pts and tied with Gordon Wilson who did a completely different rabbits ears shaped course.
