Firmaliiga Pirttimäki

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.

Firmaliiga Velskola

A lot of running along roads on 1-2, 2-3, and 3-4. About 20th place on #4 before any slow parts or mistakes.

No real plan or inspiration on 4-5, just slowly along the straight line. Stupid mistake on 6 where I looked for the control on the wrong hill before finding the same path I took on 1-2.

Firmaliiga final event in Pirttimäki next week.

Firmaliiga 2018, Velskola, E-rata

Firmaliiga Haukkalampi

Stumbled on #5 more or less accidentally and that messed up thinking for #6 which is the worst split.
More or less tired legs for the up/down hills at the end on #8-#9-#10. Otherwise mostly OK.

Firmaliiga Kattilajärvi

Maybe too careful to #3 and #5, then some zigzag towards #8. About 2-3 min J-loops to both #11 and #12.

Warm and dry.

Firmaliiga Haukkalampi, E-baana

#1 first down to the path, then up to the control again. OK.
#2 same approach, a with bit of standing around inside the control circle
#3 OKish to the lake, then easy along the path up to the control
#4 The plan was to find the path north of the line, but execution is not so good, drifting around until the road. From the road the control was easy along the ditch.
#5 easy
#6 no good plan for how to find the control in an empty area of the map. The different swamps and white/light-green forest look much the same in reality.
#7 biggest mistake. OK feeling and on the map on the hill before the control, then within the control circle slightly wrong and up too high on the hill, circling back until the ditch before finding the control. No good with +6 minutes lost to the leader.
#8 - Finish. OK.

A bit more speed and no stupid mistakes will make for a top-10 next week... 🙂

Firmaliiga Kattilajärvi, E-baana

Half-decent on odd controls, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 8, Finish. Problems on 2 turning (+3min) the wrong direction, then see-sawing back and forth close to 4 (+6-7min), a large detour to 6 (+6-7min, the straight-line route choice is too hard).

Firmaliiga Haukkalampi, E-baana

Just before #2 I found a wrong control and circled back when just 50m forward was the right thing to do, probably +5 min or so.
Then down from #7 in completely the wrong direction and another +5 min or so.

Firmaliiga Haukkalampi E-baana

Around a 2km walk from the parking-lot to the start and then 2km back again from the finish. OK weather around +10 to +12C maybe.

A decent run on this shorter E-course - in contrast to a mediocre run on the long course last week. Maybe a bit too close to the lake towards #2. The only major mistake was at #5 where I registered one big stone as the wrong one and looked north-east instead of south-west for the control. Also the area around #7 was much flatter than I expected from reading the map. By accident I crossed the forbidden area between #7 and #8 ;(

Firmaliiga Salmi B-baana

Cold around +5C or so with the occasional shower of snow or light hale!

Bad mistake to start off at #1, finding the first control for some other course instead. A bit too low towards #2, then quite safe along roads to #3. A small J-bend to a well-hidden #10. The firmaliiga B-course is maybe a bit too difficult...

Firmaliiga Solvalla

Decent run for a change, 11th out of 60 runners on the E-track. Just past the wrong stone on #1 and a ~2 min loop back. Drifted into the blue swamp a bit on #6->#7 but nothing too bad. Maybe too safe along the path to #9. After climbing the hill I searched right for #12 when it was just to the left.

Light rain and maybe +17C.
