Orienteering race 36:19  4.8 km (7:34 / km) +220m 6:09 / km
BRL Mittelstrecke 6/20 (4.45 behind)
A physical demanding middle distance. First half in a very interesting area with a lot of cliffs and boulders. Second half more traditional german, with large deep valleys between steep mountains with few details.
For once started out fast with good navigation. Was leading overall at #3 and #4. Drifted a bit left after the road passing half way to #5, was a bit confused, but couldn't figure out where I was until I was about to run down in the big valley ~30s lost. Completely screwed up the trail/logging roads to #6 (still don't know exactly where I was). Took way to long time to figure out where I was, lost ~1.30. #7-#8-#9 went pretty well, a few seconds for a map stop in the circle for each (but it was pretty tricky, so glad I played it safe). Long leg without route choice to #10, just up and down valleys, started to get tired and took one wrong trail ~30s lost. Ended up on the wrong trail to #12 and got down to the road, lost ~20s. No other mistakes on #10-17 (it was pretty easy), but I was very tired and lost more time then I should have going up to #13 and #14.
Neither the navigation or the fitness are really where I want them to be but it is getting close. Really happy, with some parts of the course.
