Orienteering 1:15:09 [3] 6.0 km (12:32 / km) +200m 10:44 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280

Karst cup, Felt like shit, so got to 6th and cut to the 11th :)

Was dared by zig to run in just my underwear and socks,

sooo I gave the ladies what they wanted just before the last control i stripped into some light weight clothing., got weird looks (most had really long weird looks ;) from a couple of the finish crew, and one chick said: "You must be careful!" She must have thought the starters were crazy for letting me start like that.

JWOC Relay

Killed the start, pretty much focussed on being first into the forest :D Success, put south africa up there for a short while, was third at the first control, but then needed some recovery time after my interval, got passed by loads of people, but then started picking some off as I regained my speed. Sloppy all over the place, but really fun being in mass start. winners time was 30:49

41st in the end, solid percentage behind leader i reckon.

JWOC Middle Final

Really awesome map, shocking start, lost like 2 minutes at the second control. Shit routes to 7 and 8, should have gone straight to 7 and dropped down earlier for 8, Slow running all over the place, too tired. decent last loop and finish split tho... Yeaa buddy.

JWOC Middle Quali

Could have been A final, legs a bit sore though and too many mistakes.

Started like a boss!! Spiked the first 2, and was in 6th place after both of them. Then I went straight to 3 like a ratard, got knee deep in some marsh cos of that, lost 40 seconds. Slow up the hill to 4, and a bit hesitant into 5, 6 I was too far right, but realised this pretty quickly.8 lost 30 seconds,went too far right around green and didnt come back sharp enough so ended up in the depression too far. 9 I easily lost a minute, visitin the other two heats controls before I found mine, Lost contact, and didnt have a plan just kind of ran in the right direction.12 went far left, think It was good, not sure what the best was though. The rest was smooth,

tired and bleak that I didnt perform. Would Have been tight around 20th if I had a smooth run.

32nd out of 60, 7:06 off the win.

Orienteering race 1:38:33 [5] **** 11.5 km (8:34 / km) +405m 7:17 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280


Knew I had to watch my compass, and stay in contact with the map the whole time. I was solid in the beginning, doing this and slowing down when I had those 'im not so sure about this' moments. Solid start, going well up until 5 when the rain started coming in hard. Shit to number 8, lost about 2 minutes, lost contact completely stumbled up on some sinkholes and thought i was by the pair too early on, so ran through the middle and found my control , lucky. lost another 2 and a half at 12, tried to go straight, then chickened out cos of green, went right, and just zig zagged around like a toss until i found the control. good through till 16, stuffed up there and 18 also, lost another 2 min. lost another 3 mins at 22, just wanted to finish.

Decent long compared to all the other JWOC longs I have run, its just a mental thing, need to go into next years with full confidence.

ended up 80th, 28:30 behind the winner, :'O 6 min off top 60

JWOC Sprint

Really amped for this one after a good run last year. My goal top 60.

My warm up was pretty solid, just keen to get going, waiting sucks.

Started with Isia Basset who went out pretty quickly for the first leg, she was pulling me to the first control, was meant to go in the small under pass but missed out, so wasnt stressed, just went to the next parking lot area. on the way to 2 got a good pace going. Nice to hear cheering so early on in the course also. bit of hesitation to number 4, then everything good up till 9, started feeling fatigued by then already which was pretty shitty, checked the aussie ahead of me come out of 11 and decided I would go the same route, think it was the wrong route looking at route choice. on the way to 13 was really tired so didnt see the gap in the crossable fence, so just went straight, ripped my fav pants on some spikage :'( The rest was solid just getting really tired and trying to push hard through to the finish,

actual dist : +- 4.25k, so actual speed about 3:42 which im pretty happy about.

ended up 74th, just 7 seconds off my goal of top 60 and 1:41 off the win.

need to take off 1:42 in the next year of my running speed.
