Orienteering race (NSW Long Chamos (SL 6)) 1:19:55 [4] 7.56 km (10:34 / km)
(injured) shoes: Inov8 x-talon 212 original (2)

Gumble Pinnacles - Hard 4 (M50)
Not sure how I finished third given how slowly I was moving and the number of mistakes I made. Bottled it on the way to 1 and used the fence as a handrail to the firebreak. Like many people made a complete hash of 3 not making any sense of the creeks and put off by the thick vegetation. Minor times loses on 6 (too low) & 7 (wrong boulder despite knowing it). Pleased to keep it together on the long leg to 9. Disappointed to lose time on 10 where I started to look in the first gully I crossed without realising there was a second. A great, taxing course let down to a small degree by the map not reflecting the regrowth, glad to have finished in a 'reasonable' time.
4 PM

Orienteering (Controlling) 23:02 [2] 1.63 km (14:08 / km)
(injured) shoes: Inov8 x-talon 212 original (2)

More control checking at Falnash on the way back from Orange to save me another trip up there before the event.

Orienteering race (State League 5) 42:02 [4] 4.35 km (9:40 / km)
(injured) shoes: Mizuno Wave Nexus 7

Rocky Falls - Hard 4 (M50)
A very average run not helped by the inability to run at anywhere near a decent pace because of the back, especially noticeable going downhill. Very hestitant through 1 and 2 as more veg. than mapped. Biggest time loses were at 9, contoured round from termite mound rather than climbing, and 10 where I pulled up short on what I thought was a rocky knoll without reading the map to realise I hadn't crossed the power line. Amazingly I had the quickest splits through 11 and 12 where the pine forest was very runnerable. Not sure the course fitted the bill as a middle distance race.
