TUESDAY

15'running in the morning.
30' running+ 14' orienteering + 15' running. Sprint was not

at the end of the race and made two stupid & big mistakes. Arrgghh.

FRIDAY

30' running + 26' orienteering + 10' running. I had great
feeling before start and chose an easy tactic for the race. Maybe I took it too
easily because on my way to the 7th control I lost my o-thinking for some 30s
and made BIG parallel mistake. After that I ran quite fast for a moment. Then I
eased my speed because of the final. One mistake could have forced me out
of the final.

25' running + 33' orienteering + 15' running. The final was just perfect race! Perfect terrain in perfect surroundings with people cheering up in sunshine. I started my race with very low speed. My idea was to have a good start in o-technical way. To the first control I lost 18s to Thierry by running. After that I started to find my pace but I was very careful still. To the fifth control I made a mistake in control-taking -phase. It took 40s and at the first intermediate I was about 16th...After that my speed got better and in the physical section (from 11th to 13th) I was almost fastest. My following performances very good enough to end up in 2nd place in the front of the audience. I cheered up and had an idea to run safely the last loop. Couldn't do so; I made a big parallel mistake on the 19th control which took 45s. I was out of medals and I COULD FEEL IN THE FOREST that now I lost something remarkable. Running in front of the audience felt fine but I wasn't tired enough in the finish. Still it was a good race and I'm satisfied. Middle Qualification (HR)
