Orienteering 1:03:57 [3] *** 8.52 km (7:30 / km) +299m 6:23 / km
ahr:163 max:179 spiked:121/16c

Longer run with a focus on planning the leg and some work on the compass. Physically I feel pretty good, my knee still hurts a bit and I’m still getting used to being home, but otherwise I’m doing pretty good. It was difficult to focus while running, I found myself thinking about non-orienteering related things while running. I was, however, able to make solid plans for the most part, sometimes I wouldn’t have a very concrete plan but it would be enough while leaving the control. The success of my compass work varied, sometimes it would go very well and sometimes I wouldn’t really use it. That goes back to focus. I was also struggling to read the finer details of the contours in some places. I’m unsure if it’s due to poor focus or because I’m still getting used to the mapping at home. Overall, a pretty good training but still some mental things to get straight.

Orienteering 57:12 [2] *** 6.32 km (9:03 / km) +276m 7:26 / km
ahr:154 max:172 spiked:29/35c

A 5,6km control pick, with some longer legs and some shorter legs. I was already pretty tired heading out for this one, and I'm sure this affected my focus. I'm not sure if I spent too much time focusing on the smaller details of the map, or if I didn't spend enough. Either way, I didn't make any massive mistakes and I was able to keep the compass mistakes to a minimum. There was nothing spectacular about my performance, but I was satisfied.
(The cross on control 29 indicates that there wasn't a flag due to a moose.)

Orienteering (Night) 27:15 [2] *** 3.27 km (8:20 / km) +237m 6:07 / km
ahr:149 max:168

A difficult downhill training, in some not very fast terrain. It was green, hilly and very slow. The map was also pretty outdated, with paths and vegetation not being very accurate . However, these things made the courses challenging, and also quite annoying to run. After the beautiful terrain in spain, this was not a very fun experience. Two courses, I did 1.5. The gps for the first is bellow.
GPS (Slightly inaccurate):

Orienteering (Night) 13:50 [2] *** 1.5 km (9:12 / km) +48m 7:56 / km

See above.

Run 33:49 [2] 4.75 km (7:07 / km) +176m 6:00 / km
ahr:138 max:172

Very relaxed run, just making sure my body isn't completely destroyed. My knee felt fine, and I was actually able to run without getting very tired. I didn't push myself and I felt fine. Still going to take it easy for the rest of the week, better to get some recovery in than to push myself.
