Orienteering race 1:10:52  ***** 5.5 km (12:53 / km) +280m 10:16 / km
16c shoes: Standard White O-Shoes
Swiss O Week Day 3. N.B. Time includes 4m 20s penalty for being late to the start. Also almost forgot a control, and wasted another 4m 30s doubling back for it. No actual serious orienteering mistakes on this very technical course - so if I hadn't made the two stupid mistakes described above, this would have been a great race for me! Twisted ankle near the end though, more seriously than for the first two days. (i.e. pain didn't go away in a few minutes.)
After the first section across newly-revealed rock and sand just below a retreating glacier, the course went downhill across a scree area, and then into some of the most intensely technical terrain I have ever come across. Even at 1:7500 the map struggled to show all the many ledges, cliffs and pools. The terrain was smooth, bare rock, but it was difficult to run at any speed.
Result: 684 points. 78th out of 117 finishers. Best split: 10th on a short leg in the intensely technical area - ran fast along a ledge and spiked it.
