Trail run 6:04 [2] 0.65 km (9:22 / km) +11m 8:38 / km

Running over to the clubhouse, stopping at my favorite tree to load up on apples. When you are taking apples from someone else's tree it is called pallaning ( I might be spelling that wrong) but apparently it's borderline okay if the branch hangs over the fence.

Trail run 9:50 [2] 1.72 km (5:42 / km) +12m 5:31 / km

Quite a long jog from the parking to the start triangle.

orienteering 1:08:40 [4] 8.89 km (7:43 / km) +105m 7:18 / km

A really fun training on Hagby, starting out with Erik, Sam, and Kristina, and then promptly getting confused by the scale and vegetation and thus running well past the first control. Ah well, I turned around and got back into the swing of things, but an embarrassing way to start. On two I was on the right feature, but needed to check my descriptions in order to figure out which side of the hill the control was hung on. Overran 4, but 5-8 were quite clean. I wasn't running too fast because I was anxious about rolling over on my left ankle after the two times I rolled it on Sunday. I found Boris and Kristina at the end of the first loop, and then we set out for 9. I swung way too far right, and then got confused about where I should be expecting to find the reentrant, crossing the area too many times in the process. Boris was waiting at 10, to convince me that it was too dark to safely orienteer and so Kristina, Boris and I jogged back to the cars, stopping by control 15, which was a challenging crepuscular control.
