Geoform/OSI rankingløp at Blindern. Went for the long course today because it had 40 controls. It's too bad my fitness wasn't really up for it. Brain just before the cluster around Forskningsparken, which is where I used to work, so it was an especially embarrassing showing. I also was not willing to run across the "frozen" ponds, losing more time there. Brain woke back up again for the last bit, starting with the leg that I was able to describe in my head as "from the trees where I would sit and read Harry Potter to the other side of the Met cafeteria".
I thought the course was fun, it was different enough from previous courses here to be interesting. The first part had a mix of legs with some decisions to make and then one really long leg and a map flip, more mixed controls, and ending with two tight groups. The last group was just criss-crossing to trees in a grassy area. Normally I would think that was silly but after 10km of "sprint" orienteering it was harder than it looks. :-)
It was just around freezing with lots of ice and snow so I was glad to have metal dobbs. It started sleeting and raining a few minutes after I started running which was kind of gross. The one time I wanted to use my magnifier it was useless because it was glazed with ice!
