(rest day)

From the farm in Cundinup Tyson and I headed south past One Tree Bridge to Pemby where Tyson climbed the Glouster Tree (I know better than to try with my fear of heights) and we had lunch before heading back via Beedleup Falls and Nannup to visit my old work mate and show Tyson around the town I lived in for 4 years where my Dad grew up.
Apparently they are putting in a permanent O course around the Nannup foreshore. I'll have to give it a go next time I'm in town!

Orienteering race (Frazzled out) 1:13:43 [3] *** 5.8 km (12:43 / km) +230m 10:36 / km

Today they took our course through the green. Controls 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 were all in the green. By number 7 I'd had enough and took the long route around the green through the sandy paddock which was probably a good choice. I was lucky to hit 5 and 6 in the vague, thick green on a compass bearing, but I struggled to find 7 after going too high from the fence corner. The last 6 controls in the relatively fast rocky paddocks were a relief - although I struggled a little with the last control. I think I was tired!

Orienteering (Frazzled again) 1:23:36 [3] *** 6.7 km (12:29 / km) +280m 10:19 / km

Another good run around the same rocks, but further west today taking in sandy farmland. Not so much green, so the running was faster (but also really hot in the sun as I had a late start). The trees were mapped really well and I used these more than once to lead me to the control from a distance. These rocks are amazing!

Orienteering race (Frazzle begins) 1:20:40 [3] *** 6.0 km (13:27 / km) +260m 11:03 / km

Had a pretty good run today and maintained contact with the map. Some amazing rocks and lots of bare rocks made for easy running. The green was very thick though because of fallen small trees in the recent storm, so the few controls in the green were tough. Overall pretty happy.

Orienteering race (Pre-Frazzled) 20:33 [3] *** 2.5 km (8:13 / km)

Public Prologue - jog around the rocks after an early start to get the 6:15am flight to Perth. Wow - big rocks. Happy with how I read the map.

Run (Hawthorndene) 39:00 [3] 6.1 km (6:24 / km)

Run with Tyson around Hawthorndene. We looked at a house for sale on Myrtle Avenue to see what you get for under $400K in the area.

(rest day)

Went to a surprise party straight after work. I rode my bike there - but given it was just out of the city on Rundle Road, and I cancelled out any goodness with bubbly, pizza, indian food and icecream, I'm not going to log it. :)
