At Friday course was flat (just 27 m climb) but with a lot of steep turns. My time is 9:57 (3 km) with schedule:
1) 3:02 (too fast beginning!)
2) 3:31 (tired...)
Winner was Yuriy Kloptsov, the best Siberian runner in 3000 m steeplechase (5th place in Russian championship 2013; PB in 3000 m is 8:07, 3000 m steeplechase - 8:35). His result is 8:29. I am +1:28 behind. Air temperature was about 14 C.
Best Siberian steeplechase runner,Yuriy Kloptsov is in the lead
Today course was tough with steep uphill and downhill running. But thats more natural for Orienteering and good for me.
Total climb is 77 m. Its gonna be same large climb in World Cup final next week.
Winner is Yuriy Kloptsov again (many strong runners participate in every competition because of duty or just for training). Yuriy ran in 9:24 (3 km). My time today is 10:36 (+1:12 behind man-winner).
It is easy to push when you are fighting against men.
Weather was acceptable +8C.
My shape is quite good now.
Next competitions are World Cup races in Switzerland.
