Still tired from the weekend races so my running shape was bad. OTOH the terrain is very nice and the great weather meant that that it was mostly quite dry.

1: Very controlled start.

2: Tried to avoid going too far down and ended up making an stupid left bend, lost 10+ seconds.

3: Good flow, ran exactly as planned. At this point I had a 42 second lead.

4: Perfect control along the hillside until the spur with the dot knoll, then I took a bearing to the control but as I got close to it I failed to spot the boulder and started searching all over the hillside. I tried to recover several times but never figured out exactly where I was until I had climbed all the way up to where I started and met Richard Z-G who was successfully running the same route I had planned. I lost 6.5 minutes here!

6-7: OK

8: The open marsh didn't seem to be open, this disturbed me enough to make me search around for a while, losing another 1.5 minutes.

9: Very easy but I was so tired that I had to walk for a while on the path. :-(

10: More walking up the hilside.

11: I had planned to run straight but when I spotted Are Eriksen cutting down right via the indistinct path I realized that this was definitely safer and probably faster as well. (I won this split.)
