Orienteering race 59:43 [5] 5.6 km (10:40 / km) +190m 9:07 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

Much better performance today, but there were a lot of runners bunched up in the 59-minute range, and I was 4th in M60. This time I ran as fast as I could navigate, and the navigation seemed a little easier. I was a little slow on the long leg 7-8. I went mostly in a straight line, but skirting the north side of the two hilltops, then around the tip of the marsh and across the little dry pond.I guess going even farther north would have avoided some climb. I crossed the first hill in the saddle between the two tops and got down the cliffs without much trouble. But it was slow on the uphills, and the downhills were cliffy, so overall maybe not optimal.

Also a little slow 9-10 along the bland hillside. I've never been very good at this kind of leg. I went slowly at first and aimed for the pair of boulders halfway across. Spotted them and sped up into the reentrants. I don't know how else to keep my position, or how to do it faster.
