Very tired after a nearly 50km MTB/foot trip in Nordmarka last evening, my right knee was painful all day but I hoped that a forest run would help, and it did. :-)

OK to #1, except that I hadn't checked the description and therefore lost 10-15 s before I realized that the flag was hidden behind a spruce SW of the knoll.

Ran straight to #2, this gave me maximum orienteering but it was in fact about 20 s slower than just taking the big paths around to the left.

Crossed over hoping to find the diagonal path to #3, didn't see it and started searching too far down. Lost 30-45 sec here?

At this point I was properly warmed up and started to run better, good flow to 4-5-6-7-8-9 and 10.

#11 seemed dead simple: Run just inside the power line clearing until the pond turned up just before the end of a nose. Disregarding the rest of the map, like the path across, I stopped on the first nose, started searching, and lost almost a minute.

So one intentional sub-optimal route choice and almost two minutes of total time loss due to mistakes, I have to do better in O-Festivalen 9-10 days from now!
