Orienteering race 1:17:53 [5] 10.43 km (7:28 / km) +237m 6:42 / km
shoes: VJ Sports Bold


283 controls


1: Wasn't mentally in it yet. I went between two depressions and the one on my left looked pretty deep so I thought I was by the lake. Turns out I've just been running on 2.5 meter contours in Hungary and Finland and suddenly everything is massive. Oh well, lesson learned.
3: A very clean leg. I could have stayed further to the left of the line but the second of the leg and the approach is well executed.
6: I missed the control by a few meters but turned around. Still good orienteering for an open spur by using the vegetation boundary and staying aware of where the downhill is.
13: Not good enough, wasn't keeping close contact and was extensively using Leif and Michael. Was punished when I didn't know where I was attacking from.
14: Immediately changed my strategy and split off from Leif and Michael to use a different route. Significant improvement in my navigation and arrived at the control at about the same time. Used obvious features (open hills).
17: Didn't make a good enough plan. The cup depressions in the "flat" area by 17 were massive and hindered good navigation because I kept looking for big depressions on the map. If I did it again, I would go left because there's less detail.
18: Hesitated because I thought I recognized the area.
19: Compass
