27/2003 In Vuokatti (Kainuu O-week)

MONDAY

20' running + 77' orienteering. + 21' running.
Competition -course from 1981. Winner was J.Mårtensson with 87'. I started from
2nd control (about 1,8km after real start) and had time 77'. Almost a perfect run!
Because the new map didn't cover  whole course I had to start 300m before 2nd
control. I had almost new map and control flags (Eikka organized) in forest as
well. There were some new paths to ease my running, but also a big amount of new
green areas, which is typical in Finland nowadays :(. My speed was almost the
same that Jögge had some 20 years ago.
I ran with 90% speed (avg. HR only 174) but maybe it helped me to do a clean run.
It would be interesting to see split times from that competition!
Map pieces will also appear here today. Now I have to organize training for the
participants on my training-camp!
43' running.

TUESDAY

34' running 
30' running + 3' orienteering + 10' running. 1000m 3.07, quite okay! 4th
control was "slow one" and running under 3min became impossible for me. I looked
at the map only five times during that 3min course.

THURSDAY

20' warming up + 34' orienteering in Kainuu + 10' warming-up. I made a big
mistake (2min) on first control. After that it was difficult to run fast. I
finished 8th, 2.25 after Jani. I analysed my performance with Eikka in front of
80 spectators in Vuokatti. It's time to learn the basics again.
