13:35 PM: 25' running + 43' orienteering + 5' running. 13km. Huippuliiga's
2nd competition in Solvalla. Feeling wasn't very good before the competition and
I decided to make a solid performance, without any risks. Once I tried to run
fast for 10s and after that I saw it was better to run steady steate.
Should I analyse something after so long silent period? Couple of remarkable
things in my mind after race:
1) I had an idea to run a solid basic run with
quite easy speed and see "how long it takes me"? I saw that if I'm not ready,
boys will eat me. And after many safe performances and wins in my o-history,
today's 8th place announced that Finnish middle distance level is high.
(because I believe orienteering counts, not running, mainly)
2)But there is always a but(t). When you haven't competed for a long time your
performance control isn't at the same level as it used to be. So, I had to
found out that I didn't so well after all. I just thought I did.
3)Will I or will I not get big this year?
Rest. Big back problems. Heikki Nousiainen, I just love you man! (see the CISM-
results). Finally he takes what he deserves to take.
