Orienteering race 21:32 [3] 3.4 km (6:20 / km)
shoes: Inov8 terrafly 315 gtx

Australian sprint championships at Bicheno. It was pretty wet and windy for the morning elite races. The map had a bit of everything, town, rocks, bush, jetties..... but with the rain the rocks were always going to be slippery. I decided on inov8 315s as these are usually OK on rocks and better for running on roads than spikes. Started pretty well, helped by geoff still looking for 1 and then fatrat stuffing 2. Was a bit slow off the beach so didn't manage to catch fatrat then lost sight of him round the little loop from 3 to 5. Took a couple of seconds to choose the left hand route round the hill, most took the right. There wasn't a lot in it, but it was hard to pick where the olive green patch ended to cut to the control. I then made a bit of a mess of getting out of 9, losing a minute and geoff caught back up. We were together for the rest of the run which was OK but a bit slow on the rocks. A slightly disappointing run after a good start. The area would have been great if it wasn't raining.

On the model for the long, there was some danger of shopping legs as Lizzie needed to stop at a shop to spend the voucher she won in the sprint. I think I got off lightly compared to the boys from a schools team that craney saw in there sitting on a step looking a bit bored. Model map was quite useful for figuring out what was and wasn't mapped in the tin mining.

Running warm up/down 15:00 [3]
shoes: Inov8 terrafly 315 gtx

Attempting to warm up in the driving rain, eventually followed jimbo's lead and put a thermal on which helped a lot. A bit of jogging around the carpark afterwards.
