OK, so I'm still very far from fully recovered:

I did make several mistakes, but my old competitors are still running well over a minute/km faster than me. :-(

Easy route to #1, as I crossed the open marsh the thin seep seemed very obvious on the other side so I ran directly up it, unfortunately this was too far right and I dropped a minute here.

2) Decided to take the indistinct path up the hill, but my gps track shows that I lost it among a lot of unmarked paths and ended up bushwacking, losing another minute to the fastest guys, of which 30-40 seconds could be from not finding the path.

3) Very heavy heather cost me another 30 seconds in pure running speed.

4) Crossing the green was OK, but I still lost well over a minute to Kjell M who won the race.

5) Bad route choice, I should have either gone direct and over Kampen hill (MTB riders had generated several new paths here), or followed the path almost all the way down to the end of the overgrown logging area. I probably lost a minute in running speed and the rest (37s) on the bad route.

Finish) The path leaving the control went all along the hillside, I should have followed it to the main trail. Lost a few second at the end since the Finish marker was placed at the wrong trail junction.

My friends Kjell M in 25:13 and Einar J in 26:11 both did very good races and Martin G also beat me in spite of a 2+ min mistake on the 4th control.
