Orienteering race (NavDash) 18:17 [5] ** 4.06 km (4:30 / km)
spiked:17/21c shoes: Brooks Beast 11

NavDash at Curtin South. Nose was very runny the day before but had cleared overnight, so didn't bother me much. A run on home ground, but it didn't help much because the course went through areas where I never go. A lot of tricky (tRicky) navigation, and I didn't pick the best routes everywhere, but most of the time it was more important to make quick decisions. Lost ~20s on #9 as I looked at the grass area instead of in the alcove. That's the only time I turned my map around to look at the control descriptions. Also lost time to #11 where I took the longer southern option as I noticed the fences too late (and didn't notice a 30cm wide alley between buildings). Was getting tired by #13, but that didn't matter much because fast running was hardly possible through Kurrajong village with so many little paths and garden beds. A few times I got to the centre of the circle and had to look around for the control for a few seconds, but didn't lose much time. Finished 46s behind Oscar and 22s ahead of Craig, starting the NavDash where I left the metrO: in second place. Forgot to start my watch, so distance is from Google Earth. Good fun, look forward to seeing the splits.

Cycling (commute) 45:14 [3] 21.52 km (28.5 kph)
ahr:130 max:155

Ride to work. Haven't been feeling too well the last few days, but was all energetic when I woke up this morning. Heart rate spiked after just a few hundred metres when I nearly got taken down by a car. At least the driver was very apologetic, which was nice for a change. Nice ride otherwise; not too hot.
