OK running until #5, after which I probably should have taken the easy road towards #6 and not tried to finesse it through the woods. Then ran past #8 up on the wrong hill and had to back-track.
Quite OK orienteering and reasonable speed/rythm until #5 where I was in 10th place, but then lack of fitness led to sloppy execution of the long #5-#6 leg and +10 minutes lost to the best runner and 6 places lost...
Warm and sunny, very dry in the forest.
long time no orienteering... short E-course in good, not too warm, weather.
#5 was the only problem, first searched too soon for it, then ran past it, and only found it coming back from the bigger trail. 5+ minute error..
warm, over +20C. My Garmin watch didn't get a GPS-fix at the start and it took until #3 for it to start recording.
No major mistakes but not so great running/fitness.
Better than last week! 35./90.
Not so great on #2, probably searched for it too high up the hill and also too much south. After the shock on #2 also some problems with direction towards #3.
Major problems finding #3 and then also out of #3 towards the road...
Stepped off the path towards #1 too soon and circled around the wrong hill, probably costing +2 minutes or so.
#5 is also a bad split - the plan was to use the paths and not go down to the lake - but bad execution resulted in a visit to the lake and slow climbing back up to the control.
#9 is not stellar, perhaps due to lack of fitness, or slowing down and reading the map too often on the long(ish) open leg.
19./88 overall is OK - would have been better without these three mistakes 😉
Short E-course. Maybe a bit nervous on #1 - then mostly OK until #7 where the direction out of the control towards #8 went 90-degrees wrong due to some unmarked trail.
The third and final Firmaliiga event this autumn was at Pirttimäki. Fairly easy course.
OK to #1 but then too much zigzag to #2. #3 and #4 are the best splits - mostly running along paths.
Out from #4 south towards the path through the woods - slowly. Sticking to the path would have been better? Again not so great down the hill towards #6.
