Tagsolvalla

Iltarastit Solvalla

Around +12C with a bit of rain before the run. Large 1:7500 map. Almost ran past both the 1st and 2nd controls...

retro-orienteering Solvalla

1:15000 map with hand-drawn controls, and old-school punching on paper (no EMIT). A bit of rain and +11 C or so.

Firmaliiga Solvalla

Stepped off the path towards #1 too soon and circled around the wrong hill, probably costing +2 minutes or so.

#5 is also a bad split - the plan was to use the paths and not go down to the lake - but bad execution resulted in a visit to the lake and slow climbing back up to the control.

#9 is not stellar, perhaps due to lack of fitness, or slowing down and reading the map too often on the long(ish) open leg.

19./88 overall is OK - would have been better without these three mistakes 😉

Oittans-Solvalla-Oittans

Might be some of the last weekends this season for biking in decent weather... Mostly easy but hilly gravel paths from Oittaa heading north to Solvalla, then back south along the main road.

Iltarastit Solvalla

As daylight disappears Iltarastit moves to Sundays. +11 C or so. Too nervous right after stepping off the path towards #1. Then quite tentative towards #21. The long compass-legs 5-4 and 8-16 look surprisingly good.

Iltarastit Solvalla

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.

Firmaliiga Solvalla

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.

Kiintorastit Solvalla

Cloudy and a bit windy but fairly warm (this being November already..)
Fairly relaxed pace with no major mistakes.

Iltarastit Solvalla

Only bigger mistake towards the end on #20 crossing the swamp and then correcting right - maybe +1min.
Otherwise quite ok in about +12C and sunshine.

Kiintorastit Solvalla

Another run on the Solvalla map with fixed controls. Last one was in April.

Problems on the second control (#50) where at first I didn't know exactly where on the dashed path I had come down from the hill, and then inside the control circle I looked for stones north up the hill when the control-stone was lower down in the forest.
