Länsirastit, Olari


After a summer break it's time to start orienteering again.

Stable, controlled, and positive run today! Perhaps because rain and thunder had lowered the temperature by five degrees to around +22C so it wasn't as hot as otherwise lately.

  • at #1 should have followed the path for a bit longer, and read the map more carefully to check that the control is actually quite high up on the hill.
  • #3 perhaps a straighter route in the beginning - and then "punching through" to the big path with speed instead of a tentative J-bend close to the control circle.
  • Found #7 before #6 - should have used better intermediate checkpoints when stepping off the path close to #6
  • To #11 I actually planned to take the norther road but then aimlessly ran down the hill out of #10 and found myself on the straight road south of #10.

2.5.2013 Olars. Again quite good! Maybe slightly harder course.
#1 maybe a bit too careful at the start
#3 very slow close to the control - went for the wrong feature inside the control-circle
#7 did not have very good control/feel for the distance along the #6-#7 path. should have kept up speed better along the path.
#10 amazingly, the huge detour right around the hill resulted in the best leg on this course! Fast running on the road/path, then very carefully into the control which looked hard to find on the map.
