Orienteering race (Night Race) 1:53:40 [5] 12.62 km (9:00 / km) +121m 8:36 / km
(injured) shoes: Adidas Adizero XT4 (Black/Yell

JUKOLA !! – Long Night – Leg 2 – 11.5km – 400m
(1:53:40 watch time, race time 1:54:11)

Amazing experience running the long night leg. More to come but lost around 4 mins of mistakes (all in control circle), need to work out what routes I took, some places I have only vague memories of. Made up places throughout the race, picking up 58 places overall so really chuffed with race given my recent illness and lack of fitness.

Need to check climb as 121m seems awfully small amount.

Orienteering 48:57 [4] 4.51 km (10:51 / km) +56m 10:13 / km
(injured) shoes: Adidas Adizero XT4 (Black/Yell

Return to same forest as yesterday to train on southern end. Seemed nice again and I was coping well with the terrain (so I thought) and the technical map too. The map was spot on, the level of detail and the accuracy was phenominal.

Orienteering 28:39 [4] 2.96 km (9:41 / km) +16m 9:25 / km
(injured) shoes: Adidas Adizero XT4 (Black/Yell

*** AREA NAME ***
Southern end of race map, wasn’t keen on pushing too much so picked a short loop with some technical controls. Really nice place to run, and again the map was bang on so nav was relatively easy when it was technical. When it was vague however I didn’t plan well and drifted off line, I should take time to make a plan on these vague legs and learn how to execute them better. Relocation was spot on though and fairly quick so not much time lost (45-60s max)

R adductor and hamstring stiffening up now, and L knee joint (inside) also giving me a bit of pain)

(Something not registering climb well over there, no way I only climbed 16m, I did that on a few legs each. Will see map and check that way.)

Orienteering 50:14 [4] 4.1 km (12:15 / km) +60m 11:25 / km
(injured) shoes: Adidas Adizero XT4 (Black/Yell

*** AREA NAME ***
Really tough introduction to Finnish orienteering. Worked hard to keep contact and was mostly really good at it. When I switched off, that’s when I made my mistake. Amazing place to run, but the mosquitos were fecking horrid.
