Orienteering race 50:41 [3] **** 5.3 km (9:34 / km) +170m 8:14 / km
15c shoes: Standard White O-Shoes

Swiss O Week Day 1. The start was up at 2950m above sea-level, the end was at 2600m - quite a drop. Took it a bit too easy as I was concerned about the altitude and didn't realise this was going to be a fast area. The first section was very stony and tough, too, and I made a couple of poor route choices. The second half of the race was fast and downhill, on alpine pastures. Stunning views of the Matterhorn.

My worst day's result, as I ran too carefully and slowly. Won the intra-SLOW run-in split competition though! (So had to wear a polka-dot "king of the mountains" jersey for the following day's race.

Result: 608 points. 82nd out of 125 finishers. Best split: 17th on the run-in.
