great - good to have such an honest report with good legs and errors all highlighted. Also like the list of things to take forward to next races.
Hope you have good prep towards test races :-)
Thanks Jon. The development seems to be hard see sometimes but got to keep the big picture in mind. Have you ran on similar areas to jukola before? What has been your experience there?
I ran in several big Finnish races and never did very well, then ran Jukola '93 - wow - GB team finished 49th (I think). I was on 2nd and Andy K put me out well up. I was in leading pack for most of race (didn't really know it at the time - I was so scared of missing) and eventually finished in 3rd place... I'll never forget the wall of noise, light, faces and screaming as I came onto the run-in... I was so focussed all race, probably never been so tight before or after, but it worked and ever since then I've enjoyed Finnish terrain!
