Orienteering race (Wa long champs) 1:35:00  15.0 km (6:20 / km)
shoes: x talon 190.2
A cold, wet day for my first bush race in a year. Had a few wobbles mid leg as I struggled to stay on bearing at times (1,3,7,12,19) most notably running off the map on the way to 7 and running about 80 metres past the mid leg road before deciding to retreat to the road and work thing out, but picked when things didn't fit well, adjusted accordingly and was smooth into just about every control.
Unsurprisingly, the legs didn't really cope with running in terrain. Felt good until the hill up to 11, the early climb to 15 was really tough and the wheels well and truly fell off from 17 to the finish.
Ended up 12th, about 15 minutes behind Simon and Shep, and about 2 behind Craig, so easily the closest I've come to the state long title.
Pretty stoked given the (lack of) preparation.
13.4km straight line, 480m climb. My distance a complete fabrication.
Fun course. Seemed to make good use of the map and had some long route choice legs.
