Kerzerslauf and 1. Nationaler

This weekend I started the orienteering national season in Switzerland, with the 1. Nationaler in Winterthur on Sunday. I ran a technical stable middle distance race, with only two minor mistakes, which resulted in a 6th position. The day before I ran the 5km at Kerzerslauf. The 5km had quite much elevation, and varied between paved streets, forest streets and small paths. I started out controlled, and managed to keep a constant pace through out the race, finishing 9th overall and 6th in my category on a time of 19:36. 

 

 

 

 

 

Sprint Camp in Italy

Just 2 weeks after the training camp in Spain, I went to Gargano in Italy for the international open MOC sprint camp. Together with a big group of international elite runners, I got to run many tricky old town sprints in full speed. As part of the camp we ran two IOF test sprint races, one knockout sprint and one chasing start sprint. Tough, but good training. The week in the south of Italy was ended with participation in MOC, on the west coast. There we ran a night sprint in Agropoli, a sprint in the UNESCO ruins of Paestum, and in the UNESCO royal park of Reggia di Caserta. 

 

 

 

Training Camp in Alicante

After a long period of virus sickness in January, I was finally ready for my first training camp this winter. Together with seven swiss orienteers I went to Alicante 11th-20th of February. We had a bungalow at the coast by Guardamar close to Alicante, and got a very nice training week. At the first day we participated at the Lorca O meeting, and in the second weekend in Trofeo Costa Calida. I only ran the sprint and middle distance the second weekend fast, due to my long sickness break. The results were ok, with a 7th place in the sprint and a 5th place in the middle distance. This training week was a good step in the right direction, and I am happy that my body starts to recover normally and seems to respond to the training.
