Run warm up/down 10:00 
Current circumstances mean that I probably won't be bothering much with warms up and down on the days I do race this week, but it was kind of unavoidable today with the long haul to the start! Some impact-related soreness in the foot, sort of felt like it was below the base of the strained ligament.
Orienteering race 22:36  **** 1.9 km (11:54 / km) +75m 9:56 / km
Oceania Sprint Champs, 3 controls in town belt then the rest in Wellington East Girls and Wellington College.
Only 2 real mistakes but both relatively bad ones. 1st control didn't have my head into the scale at all so over ran where I needed to jump off a track by 50 metres south (but more crucially 15-20 metres up!). Probably about a minute lost there. 6-7, when I got down into the main W College campus somehow had my orientation wrong or got completely confused which building I was looking at, or possibly what I ended up doing makes sense if I was trying to navigate from 9 to 7? (Don't think I've ever done that kind of thing before) - anyway for whatever reason I ran just about all the way down one side of the wrong building. Which was a large one. And rolled on a loose rock with the bad ankle while doing so, putting recovery back a couple of days easily. And then, when I was finally back on track, spent a few too many seconds standing at one of the too-many-other controls in the spectator area waiting for its number to turn into the one I wanted. Easily 90 seconds lost overall on that leg. As further indication I didn't have my sprint-brain working for most of the course, also missed a track that was on my route-choice for 4, but as it happens the route that dragged me on to was probably actually slightly better.
Barring miraculous recovery tomorrow I will now skip the Oceania Long on thursday (which I was still 50/50 about before today's race) and aim for the relay on friday
