First leg on NSK3. This was very "heavy" terrain and my exhausted legs were overwhelmed. I had a catastrophic error on #2 (8 min?), triggered by assuming the cliff I saw in terrain was one on the map but ultimately caused by the fact that my "plan" had just been to "go along here until you see it".
It was a beautiful day and good orienteering terrain, it was just too hard for me, especially today.
Flew back to Oslo this evening. Slept in this morning after the party instead of going for a run -- Melissa's orders (something about "you better get rest since you can"). Also, enough of the dancing last night took place after midnight to count as today's workout. That's how it works when you're nearing 40, right?

In Jūrmala, Latvia for the annual company gathering. Lucky for me the flight schedules worked out that the Norway office flew in last night and thus had the morning free while we waited for Finland, Denmark, and Sweden to show up today. I got an orienteering map of the forest at the end of the little spit from the nice Magnets Orienteering guy. It was about 5km to the edge of the map from the hotel so this was actually mostly transport, and most of that was running on the beach.
Not really beach weather this morning, about 13C and cloudy and it started to rain as soon as I got to the map and stopped as soon as I started running back. The terrain, away from the beach, was lovely sex forest -- pine dune terrain. Did a bit of running in terrain feature hopping, but stuck to trails a lot.
There were several people out on the beach this morning, a few in the water and many walking, very slowly, with poles. There was also a guy with a metal detector. This used to be a very popular resort area for Soviet bigwigs, maybe he thinks he'll find some Russian treasures. There are a lot of cool buildings, from the bit that I saw.
To and from Løp & Lek plus some errands around the neighborhood.

First of the season and it was our group's turn to organize. Setting out controls (1 hour), shadowing one the of the boys (40 min), then picking up some controls (20 min). I was out there today from 4:30 to 8:00 and spent a bit of time getting the maps ready Sunday and Monday. Happy to do it but also glad I don't have to do it every week right now.
