2012 Australian Sprint Championships
10:40 AM. Bicheno. Burned 350 calories.

The rain came and didn't stop until we had pancakes in our bellies. This was heaps of fun and i felt i did pretty well on the navigation, the speed however was somewhat lacking. The speed was halved on the rocks, which i was not willing to lose any footing on, i don't understand how the top guys managed such good times over the rocks. I had a few little shakes and wobbles where i didn't read the control descriptions and wasn't sure of the feature, but lost very little time. Where possible i tried to avoid running on the rocks at all, i don't think this was a bad idea.

Much much cleaner than yesterday. In fact i only had one wobble at a control on a feature that could've been a little inaccurate. Juffy beat me by a solid 10 minutes, probably because he flew business class and i didn't. I took the boat. I let Juffy pass me on the long leg, where i took the shorter steeper option thinking that i would move faster in a straighter line where he could run faster on the longer route choice. Low and behold i saw him disappearing into the distance at the end of this leg. After this my only goal was to finish smoothly with no mistakes. A fun course.
Afterwards we went and ate pancakes and drank hot chocolates. mmmmmmm pancakes.

Feeling a little lethargic is probably not a good way to go into an Australian Championship. I wish i also realised that i was the only South Aussie on the course, probably would've tanken it a bit more seriously. Anyway popped the first control off with no dramas, but then that's where things went bad. Overshot the 2nd control by - oh i don't know - 2 controls. Yep popped up at control 4 not really feeling the love for the map. Turns out the contour interval was 2.5m which means my catching feature was far more subtle than anticipated. After that didn't have too much problem with the course, but was thankful at one point that Jimbo was passing me to lead me to the mysterious #16. Really feel slow against the real elites
