Orienteering 1:22:45 [3] 8.1 km (10:13 / km) +260m 8:48 / km
ahr:170 max:183

SOM. ran the 3rd leg.
Made two major mistakes.
The first one to the third control where I first came to the forking control. I looked at the map very quickly and decided that the forking must be on the stone on the left side of my control... started to search quite a bit until I realised that I was actually way too much to the right and the forking was on the little cliff to the right of my control -> 4 minutes

Then to 5 I lost direction, came to a field and even before properly looking decided that it must be the field right from my line, so corrected to the left until I came to another field realising that I had been already left... If I had looked properly at the field the route wouldn't have been that bad... antother 8 minutes there...

Twice just deciding way too fast!! Maybe some relay influence here?
Anyway, was rather frustrated that I've been making so stupid (and large) mistakes...

Orienteering race 25:25 [3] 2.2 km (11:33 / km) +55m 10:16 / km
shoes: Nike airspan+ 8

5. Nat. Estavayer-le-lac 25/27 winning time 18:08
It really started to rain shortly after my start, had troubles to read the map it was getting very dark. Was totally overstrained, it would have been difficult to see all the small details important for route choice even with good weather but like this it was even worse.
Made one larger mistake (almost 2') where I was kind of lost for a moment, and two route choice mistakes (in total also almost 2') at the castle.

Besides that the race was pretty solid, even though it didn't feel like it at all. was stopping all the time, couldn't actually push the speed... I guess that was my slowest sprint ever...

(rest day)

another rest day. Wanted to go running after work, but had had a rather strange chili for lunch so felt kind of sick all afternoon. Went to sleep for an hour instead of running. Might be the better preparation for tomorrow...

(rest day)

I wanted to do a short Käferberg loop in the morning as I was in Zürich (for old times sake). But there was a thunderstorm, so everything was very wet and I decided against it.
During the day I felt that it had been a good decision anyway, my feet were very tired, have been running a bit too much in the Nike Free...
