THURSDAY

17:44 PM: 45' orienteering + 5' running. 8,5km. in Ilvesvuori. It was my 6th time
in this terrain so mistakes are becoming impossible to make. I ran the 7km
course in 45' which is very good when running "as easy as possible".
Mistakeless performance makes your time good if you are in a great condition.
These kind of o-sessions build up right kind of self-confidence (running
"slowly", just you, map and the forest + passion to make a perfect performance.
Damn, I love this sport!).
21:10 PM: 30' tennis. Very light efforts only, but playing 75' total.

competition in middle distance. Yesterday I had the best running feeling ever
and it was easy to assume that I'm going to start too fast. This time I didn't
want to take it safely. I just tried to make a big run and orienteering was
little bit "behind" all the time in the beginning of the competition. So little
mistakes on the 1st and 2nd controls, then unefficient "come down -decision"
and only one leg without mistake. On 4th, 5th and 6th control I made over a
minute extra. The came the long leg to the 7th and my orienteering finally
started to work. The rest of the race was very pleasant terrain with demanding
challenges. In other words; difficult orienteering. No mistakes in the end and
I won!! Coming tomorrow: Better orienteering.

SUNDAY

8:33 AM: 10' running. 2km. Nice sunshine (at last)!
12:28 PM: 15' running + 94' orienteering + 5' warming-up. 21km. The long qual. race
was Jonne's property. I ran quite well (maybe 3min mistakes or bad route
choices) and was 2nd I didn't catch any runners during my performance so it
was difficult to keep up the top speed alone. But in the EOC/WOC it must be
done - also alone. See the short analysis on the HR file. Map pieces also
included.
