Firmaliiga Kattilajärvi

Firmaliiga today on the shorter course, just 4.0 km.

#1 a strange loop south before settling for the road as a good choice. Might have paid off to run at 90-degrees to the control-line in the beginning and use the road for the entire leg. Bad split.

#2 a little slowly to the swamp and steep cliff around 50% of the leg, then OK north on the narrow swamp via the big stone and entering the control circle via the small cliff. Good split.

#3 safe road-route until the lake, then a bit carefully crossing the wet bit and steeply up the hill to the control. Good split, could have been 30-60s faster with less hesitation at the lake and more speed up the hill.

#4 tried but failed to find the dashed path, drifted roughly in the correct direction but the 90-degree turn up the big hill next to the wrong lake is unforgivable. Mostly with help of other runners I find the right lake and the control. Much time lost, maybe +3 min. Should not let orienteering get out of control like this - must find clear land-marks during the leg before risking overshooting the control. Bad bad split.

#5-#6-F quite easy along the path. +40s on the short leg to the Finish is not great. More speed please.

10th overall is OK.
