Orienteering race (Regionale 3 - Nemours) 1:15:15 [3] **** 8.7 km (8:39 / km)
spiked:11/15c shoes: Inov-8 OROC 280 blue pair

Regionale 3 in a Fontainebleau-type forest near Nemours. Good first half to the race but lousy second half. The planner decided to find every crappy bit of forest on the map and put us through there, and to throw in a 2+km track run for good measure. Ran through the odd bit of nice forest and was cursing the planner that we didn't spend more time in there. The first leg was tough - supposed to be rough open according to the map, but was in fact a huge amount of young regrowth with little visibility and very poor runnability. But managed to get through the first 8 controls okay with no errors and feeling okay. THen a long route choice leg - a track to the left or a track to the right. I took the track to the right and did okay - not really speeding along but moving okay-ish. Had a bit of trouble finding the control in a hillside of cliffs with only half of them markde on the map :-).

On the way to #10, I brushed past a low branch that caught my SI dibber and ripped it off my finger. I had an elastic loop around my wrist as a safety measure, but it was no protection at all. Spent a good 5 minutes trying to find the SI unit, searching among dense leaf litter for a bright yellow object. The branch flung it quite a way and so it was very frustrating to find the bloody thing. Eventually did, but by then the enthusiasm level had dropped a little. Got #10 okay, but then wasted time on each of the rest of the controls, just circling into the control or searching in the wrong spot. My back started to hurt quite a bit asa well, which didn't add to the mood!

Disappointing run overall. Haven't seen the results as yet, but wouldn't be surprised to be quite a way down.
