Shamrock O'Ringen, day 1. Fabulous. Wide open spaces, not a tree to be seen, very interesting. Would have been even more interesting, and a lot harder, with some fog or mist or whatever they call it here. But it was still just fine.
I thought the running was going to be worse than it was, as the ground was quite uneven, but the only really bad places were the marshes, just grass but hummocky, had to try to run between the humps, fell down a few times but at least it was always a soft landing. Best running was on the rock, even when it was tilted, nice and firm even if a bit tough on the ankles.
And the orienteering was just a lot of fun. No mistakes to speak of, though close -- I wasn't too far from #2 when I decided I really should go to #1 first, and from 6 to 7 I was quite insecure and cautious, but basically all the flags were where I expected them. And my legs were OK, supposed to be 80 meters climb, but didn't really feel like any. The hardest running was across the marshes.
. Straight-line distance was 3.6 km. And my route
