Orienteering (Night-O) 2:00:00 [3] 7.5 km (16:00 / km)

Really tough night-o course. Was so much fun to be blasting through the woods at night but the knee wore out pretty quickly and I wasn't able to go faster than a brisk walk after the first half-hour or so. Most of the time it wasn't possible to go faster anyway due to the extremely detailed navigation and lack of visibility in the fog so it was quite fun regardless.

Had trouble in just about half of the control circle but only a couple tha required full relocation. Found myself doing nearly full 180s a couple times while trying to follow a bearing. It's amazing how quickly you can can get turned around at night if you ignore your compass for more than a couple glances at the map.

Knee swelled up pretty bad by the end. A bit worried that I might have overdone it. It was just too much fun to cut short.
