Saturday Apr 20 #

Orienteering race 18:17 [4] 2.0 km (9:09 / km)
ahr:123 max:158 shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230

Day 1 of Easter at Scotch College. GPS 2.16kms.

Thought I must have picked up a junior course for 1 and 2, lost a few seconds to 2 from surprise that it was just as easy as 1. 3 was tougher though; I didn't see the shortest route and went around the double switchback ramp, but at least it was safe. To 4 I took another safe route to the left. At 6 and 7 I lost a few more seconds as I couldn't believe how easy, and was thinking there must be a trap. Caught Steve F here after he'd made an error. From 7-8 I dashed out to the road and ran along the footpath before cutting back in to the grassy area with trees, finding 8 before Steve who had gone around to the right. Got the fastest split to 9, and a bit of a gap over Steve going through the tunnel, but then lost it as I ran past 10 without seeing it. Steve passed me here, but I caught him again running down the passage towards 12 and 11 (11 on the far side of a building), and watched him punch 12 then run off towards 13! I carried on around the building to 11, where I caught my 1-minute man Greg C. Back to 12 with Greg, then we went different ways to 13 but came together again at 14. Different ways to 15, but I ran the fastest split to 16 and just beat him to it. I gained up to 12 seconds through to 21, but I was tiring and felt like the breathing might seize up so eased up a bit into the finish.

4th place, 40 seconds down. 2 main rivals (incl Steve F) mp'd, so they were out of the 3 days.

Orienteering race 23:59 [4] 3.81 km (6:18 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230

Open Sprint Relay at UWA. One mistake at no. 2 where I hesitated, thinking I need to go back around, but then went the other way for 30 metres. Realised and corrected quickly, but lots of people had passed me. Made up some ground on the longish leg from 3, but was worried about not pushing too hard in case the breathing stopped. Saw lots of people take an illegal route between 6 and 7 - it should either have been taped off or not mapped as garden. I gained a few more places back in the greenhouse maze, and more still by taking the road route on the long leg from 15-16. A steady run with good nav, but well down on the fast guys. May have got first OF though.

Running 24:16 [3] 3.87 km (6:16 / km)
ahr:121 max:168 shoes: Inov8 Parkclaw 275

Hyde Park run, max HR was in the first minute of the run, which I guess tells me that a warm-up is important.

Monday Apr 15 #

Road cycling 2:25:00 [3] 56.1 km (2:35 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Around the river, including Mt Henry. Wet and windy, and forgot my bottle. When I stopped for a drink at a water fountain, I succeeded in getting a chain ring tattoo.

Orienteering race 15:27 [4] 2.5 km (6:11 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230

Short course at John XXIII NavDash, one small error at 1, more a case of looking around the corner to confirm that I needed to go up a level, maybe lost 15 secs. One route choice error from 6-7; backing out of 6 was easier nav and shorter distance, though you couldn't really tell either from the map. Took the win over Liam (Yay!).

Orienteering 26:48 [4] 3.7 km (7:15 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 230

Long course at John XXIII, listed this one as 'training' because I took it very easy. Did the same route choice in reverse from 2-3 as 6-7 on the Short, but this time I knew where to go, so the nav was easier. No errors, just slow.
