Had hopes of running better, but my legs weren't in the mood, and my mind had trouble too. I think I was still a bit tired from Gbg.
Stupid mistake on #3 (30-40s), mistakes on #5 (1:25), #12 (15s), #13 (dir leaving #12) (20s), #26 (70s).
My-O counts 7:47 of errors, but I disagree. 87% success... http://www.mysport.fi/mysport/my-o/index.php?optio...
Bolds weren't in the best of shape starting, and they loosened (not sure if because of the 'fitlock' disintegrating or just getting wet), retied one en route to 6, and the other en route to 9. Independently of all that, between 10 and 11, I got a stick through the sole (like in Westmoreland with my O-Rocs). So I stopped and sat down for a bit and waggled it back out the way it came in. Foot wasn't too sore (not even a scratch, though it puncture the insoles and bruised a little), so I started running again, just a bit gingerly and none too motivated. Tried to push a little nevertheless, as competition it is, but I was pretty happy not to be needing this race for tiomila selection. Pottered along. Managed to run up the hill to 21, which surprised me, just kept going at a steady pace, had someone behind me for 22-25, made a mistake at 26 so punched behind him there, overtook him to the last control, let him (and most everyone else) outsprint me, since I wasn't in a battle for seconds today.
Hohum, could have been worse. Also, looked for gps this morning, couldn't find it, turns out it was in the *other* bag.
Everyone else piled in the bus back to Hel, I stayed on and camped overnight. Really quite pleasant, only met the one mosquito and I won.
