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..
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.
Mostly good running speed on a fairly simple map/course.
Probably +3 minues at #2, not finding the planned southern path between #1-#2. After that quite OK until a bit of hesitation approaching #8.
Down the hill towards #1 too soon. Also too low before #5. Not a great direction out of #6.
Warmer maybe +12C or so with a bit of sun.
Cold +5C and a bit of rain.
Orienteering season is here again. An easy start on a 1:7500 city map. Fitness and pace is low...
A bit tentative towards #2 and a loop before getting a new fix to the map. To the wrong cliff just outside the control-circle on #7.
Mostly walking in quite slow terrain - with at least 3 bigger mistakes...
Rain and quite slippery. Lots of mistakes - but others find this map particularly difficult to read and interpret also...
#1 wrong path.
#4 lost among the stones and many paths.
#10 must have passed close to control but missed it.
