Tried to run this race one day after the mass start, it turned out that the ankle I smashed 3 weeks ago wasn't even close to capable of running in the forest. I ran OK to #1, then stumbled going down the hill to #2 and at that point it started to hurt a bit.

I took a bad direction out of #2 (I had the north fork), but got back on my route, but when the path passed the first/highest point I thought I was already at the second and left the path looking for the reflex marker. I recovered on the knoll just north of the path, then hobbled along to #4.

#5 was pretty bad: I tried to avoid the dense green after the path but ended up getting completely stuck in the worst parts of it, losing my direction, along with my head lamp which I had to hand-carry until I finally got out far north of where I had aimed. Missing my control twice was just adding insult to injury.

I walked everything after this except when I was on very clean ground, at least I managedt to orienteer well at this pace.
