Short course at Gosnells NavDash, 2.24kms.
Started 1 min behind the speedy W14 and wasn't confident of catching her if the course was too easy, but saw her leaving 1 and was right behind by 2. We were then pretty well together until she got away towards the finish, but by less than that minute. This was despite my misreading the map and taking the longer, fence-climbing route to 6 (should have looked through my magnifier), and initially heading for the zig-zag at 10, before turning round and taking the bridge. I didn't see which way she went on the long, route-choice leg to 13, but there was only 10 secs difference even though I took what was probably the longer route.
After taking care to make sure my long course was recorded as non-competitive, I was a bit annoyed to find someone ahead of me in the results for whom the Short course was their second effort. Also annoyed that it seems I can't claim my splits for the Long in AP.

Long course at Gosnells, 3.25kms. After a too-short rest I started the Long. Mostly reasonable navigation, but very slow, especially after breathing difficulty came on between 7-8, so I slowed even further to a walk for a few controls. This also caused me to doubt there was a direct way through to 9, but eventually pulled out the magnifier to work out that what I thought was a thick black line was actually a thinner one with a contour next to it.
