10 AM

run warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.5 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: x talon 190.2

More to do with keeping warm than actually warming up. Had no illusions of running a long race at speed, so no ru throughs or anything extreme like that...
11 AM

Orienteering race (Wa long champs) 1:35:00 [3] 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.

5 PM

run 26:30 [3] 6.0 km (4:25 / km)
shoes: Saucony Mirage 3

Reasonable warm up, 5x400 with 2 min rest recovery and token cool down. Not the planned session, not the planned day, but at least it got the legs ticking over. 76.xx to 78.xx last one felt pretty comfortable, not the first few.

8 PM

run 42:02 [3] 9.15 km (4:36 / km)
shoes: Saucony Mirage 3

Finally - not what it was planned to be, not on the day it was planned to be, but I made it out the door for a relaxed cruise around the standard recovery loop.

Felt surprisingly smooth, but quads were pretty tight by the end, and I suspect I'm not going to pull up all that well.
