Orienteering race (bush) 1:38:23  *** 11.19 km (8:48 / km)
spiked:9/15c shoes: Mudclaw 333
Bush event at Wundabiniring Brook, H2 course. After all the "big" races the last few weeks I decided to take this one easy, also because it looked like there wasn't a whole lot of competition there. Just a nice jog through the forest, and I enjoyed myself. Still managed to mess up two legs badly, one of which was the first. I corrected my direction at a clearing, but the correction was wrong and I ended up too far left. Then ran off to some boulders that were too large and too far away, and on the way back I ran another big circle just for good measure. After that I got into the map and was ok until the leg to #7. It was a leg through a large patch of dark green and when I came out I thought I was exactly where I wanted to be, but I was one gully too far north. Had to go back up the hill to reorientate. A few more wobbles along the way, but they were fairly quickly corrected.
After getting back I noticed Ben and Juffy had put in a good effort, and I wished I had raced a bit harder. Probably lost about 15-18 minutes on mistakes and another 20 minutes on being slow (and one minute on showing two girls where they were).
