A rushed warm up on the way to the start, including a run to the secretariat to get a new bib number, then back to my bag to get 40kr to pay for a new number, then back to the secretariat to actually get the bib. By the time that was all settled and I had it pinned on I didn't actually have a lot of time to get to the start. I also needed to pee and the woods between the arena and start 2 were very open, so it ended up being a fairly public pee.

WMOC Middle Final (A)
Quite pleased with my run but a bit disappointed by the result. Today was much more interesting and difficult than yesterday, and also more fun. I made a few smaller errors probably totaling up to something under 2 minutes, and of course the technical nature and lower visibility slowed me down. But I consider this a very good outing for me. I even led a train through the last few controls and into the finish.
Now for the disappointing part: the bottom 8 finishers today (25%) get relegated to the B final, which means I had to do at least as well as yesterday. Unfortunately I only beat 7 people, finishing 25th and 8 seconds back from 24th, which means I will run in the B final on Friday. Kind of sucks, but dems da rules this year, harsh as it is.

Running to and near the start, with full LMLS (time not included). The start area was dusty dusty, like a mini Jukola. Bit of a sore throat and general achiness going on so I was a bit skeptical that I would handle 6km well.

WMOC Forest Qual
Went well. Safely through to the middle A-final. Will have to do well tomorrow to stay in the A-final for the long (bottom 25% are relegated!). Surprised at how much difference there is between my forest splits and my sprint splits, especially in this terrain where I was able to run several legs quite hard, without much map reading or tough undergrowth to slow me down.
