OKS ultra long club champs

Assembly area was at Hellas club house so I'd been looking forward to running in granby/paradiset for a few weeks, but heard the day before we will actually be across the road on ågesta for some of the course. Thought that sounded weird because that ment a couple of kms along a road/cycle path between the two forests ... Turned out the whole race was in ågesta. It's a nice forest but not exactly what I had bee looking forward to.

Anyway after plenty of strange things with the organising, feeling tired last few days and not much sleep Saturday night I wasn't really feeling up for this, especially after the start was delayed 25min without telling anyone so we was just stood around waiting in the cold haha.
Anyhow i thought it would be a nice chance to run longer session where I could run with people.

We had another strange experience at the start. It was a mass start with a punching start after the maps was handed out. Cat was very concerned about this all morning, understanding that you could potentially be the first to finish but still not win if someone had a faster SI time by punching later at the start. So it was really funny to see her face when the organiser shouted lady's first at the start haha. This actually help me miss number one because of laughing and taking the piss. Anyway the group disappeared and I ran pretty much the whole course by myself.

There was actually a point toward no19 where I was closing on a few people, but no19 was a BBQ control so I stopped for a hotdog, warm juice and had a quick chat to Johan and Palle. So I didn't end up catching the group.

Strange day

OKS relay training
Feeling tired today so planned to take it easy and see how I get on with out much effort.

At the long leg back to svartvik I realised it was Georg and Mykola just behind me.

Thought the butterfly I hoped I might get a head here if I was alone and not need to speed wind it up to a sprint finish, but we all had the same way round. It was good as we all did our own orienteering and took different routes/used features to orienteer from.

Orienteering Night 1:25:00 [3]

Did the old trick of "Go all the way to a night mass start race to then run to the wrong gaffel in the begining and then run 75mins totally by myself"

To no4 i can understand the mistake. The first 3 controls was ungaffled and I was near the front just checking the compass and looking a head to see the control so when a gaffled control turned up and i didnt check my compass I ended up looking an idiot at the wrong control. I understand this mistake even if im really not happy about it but I know how to fix it

But after that mistake...

Pretty frustrated with this run. I was not very good!
some ok parts but some really shocking mistakes, mainly directional mistakes. not sure what the root of this problem? think i was planning ok? (maybe not great). but makes me think i wasnt checking my compass enough or not looking up enough? but might also be because I wasnt concentrating well enough? Probably making a rough plan then just head down and chase / try too hard to hopefully catch some people up, thinking about running too much? Anyhow Im pretty annoyed
