Run race ((orienteering)) 14:50 [4] *** 2.8 km (5:18 / km) +10m 5:12 / km

WMOC sprint B final in the centre of Copenhagen. About where I expected to be with the time - about 2 minutes down (there's always someone good who's blown the qualifier), but very disappointed with the place, nearly halfway down the field - I didn't expect a B final to be as tightly clustered as that. This reflected a technically simple course, with only about 5 legs which provided much of a challenge (and even then, mostly still 2s on the David May scale, not 3s or 4s).

Felt as if I never properly loosened up on this run, although my kilometre rates seemed to be a bit faster on the whole than on the non-forest legs yesterday. Didn't lose any time that I know of, and would want not to have done on that course (as a late starter, I'd heard about the only two significant traps in the area before I went out).

The shorter courses from start 1 seemed to be the ones which suffered here - long courses from start 1, and all the ones I saw from start 2, were much better (the early part of the start 2 courses was particularly good). Unsurprisingly for an inner-city area, access issues were apparently significant.

Tash smashed it again, and Hermann was second. I'll be happy if I'm still up to doing these in 2065.
