O-Festivalen Sprint H55 (test run) (26/06/2015)
Category: Training
Map/area: Kjerringmyr
Organiser: Nydalens SK
Distance: 2.42 km
Time: 15:16
Test run of the class I normally compete in, before the control flags had been hung out.

This is an area which I know too well to be able to take part in the competition, so I'm spending this long weekend working in the Elite Red Zone, i.e. checking questionable punching and other problems.

Before the race started I ran through my class, without taping my ankles so I had to be very careful!

1) OK, here I ran almost completly on map/terrain memory.

2) Hesitated a few seconds into the control.

3) More hesitation while looking for a 10 cm long plastic control marker.

4) I would normally have taken the path to the left of Kjerringmyr but decided to try to go straight. I don't know if this was good or not.

5) Here I stopped and checked an area to the north of the control with a lot of plastic and other gear, it looked like a temporary campsite. This took about 50 s.

6) OK

7) Some hesitation due to an unmapped (probably marginal) cliff north of the one shown on the map.

The rest of the course was mostly pure running.

When I compare my time with the competition results it seems I was running at comparable speed to the second-best runners, but Jörgen Mårtensson who won was significantly faster!
