Last week i had a great opportunity to train on soma high quality maps, first on Monday i ran in Iltarastit becuase the training place was very near to my place.
the map looked quite old but it was a nice terrain.
On Wendsday i ran in a local training in Tampere, only contours.
I really enjoyed the training, i guess it was the best training this year by far. the map was extremly good and challenging.
On Friday and Saturday i ran in Tampere Games in Sprint and Middle.
In the sprint i made big mistake to the 3rd control, i didnt know exactly where was the control.
To the 4th control i crossed a bush in the green place that was forbidden. I actually lost my count of buildings when i crossed this place but in the green area there was no bush, in the map its looks very uncrossable but in reality there was almost nothing. but this is the sprint rules and i need to learn and accept them.
In the rest of the course i ran quite good with a small mistake to 15 control, then i was caught by the runner who started 1 minute after me, this time it was the world champion :D
On Suterday i ran in middle distance competition in Hardcore Tampere terrain, soft ground and a lot of fallen trees.
i ran good until the 4th control but then made mistakes in 4th and 5th control and then i felt very heavy, out of energy. until the 6th control i felt very bad and then i decide to try to push but i was totally out of energy and the terrain was very hard to run which didnt help me so much. on the 14th control i did a 2 minute mistake because i didn't realised the green borders.
Today i ran in Forssa Games, i had some problems to 2th control and to 5th control that take me to much time.
Now i will take it easy in the next week because this is Jukola on the weekend and i am feeling quite tired in the last days, the main competition of the year. i will run in the second team for Koovee in the last leg.
