Cityscape orienteering on a 1:7500 map where features approach you sooner than you think.
Long running legs to #1, #3, and #5 to get the body warmed up and oxygen flowing. My route-choice towards #6 looks quite crooked, straighter might have been faster. After #7 there was a control visible higher up which I had to check out before realizing it wasn't #8 😉 Out of #9 it looked like a good idea to run straight under the water-tower (cross-hatched disk on the map) but in reality there was a fence or gate..
Yahoo the orienteering season 2017 has been opened!
Easy orienteering on a well-known area/map 😉 Still managed to be confused at #2 about the control-code, and then a small loop around #10.
Night orienteering! Always a bit harder to see the surroundings and easier to make mistakes.
A loop around #1, then OK until #3, but followed someone else towards #4 and lost the plot. Tired legs for the rest of the course.
No big mistakes. Worst split is #6 which came just after a long run along the road to #5. 13th/93 overall.
17 minutes of zigzagging around a small 1:4000 map. Much too careful/slow to #1, after that OKish. The GPS-trace is badly offset...
No GPS so a hand-drawn map instead 😉
OK run until #3, then too soon up into the hill (before the steep cliff) for #4. #6 was maybe the most difficult.
Warm +21C or so.
Decent run for a change, 11th out of 60 runners on the E-track. Just past the wrong stone on #1 and a ~2 min loop back. Drifted into the blue swamp a bit on #6->#7 but nothing too bad. Maybe too safe along the path to #9. After climbing the hill I searched right for #12 when it was just to the left.
Light rain and maybe +17C.
Long time no run.
Decent on 1-2-3, then problems on #4, an empty hill that was difficult also last year. Again decent to #5 but then very slow down the hill towards #6 and no good plan for how to find the difficult #6.
Solvalla next week.
