WOC training Camp in Latvia

Monday after the Norwegian Champs. in Sprint I went to Latvia with the National Team. I had been selected to the camp after my results at EOC. We got a nice, but tough training week with several training compititions. I decided to take it easy on the middle distance on Tuesday, but ran well in the relay training on Wednesday and the sprint races on Saturday and Sunday despite tired legs. The long distance on Friday however I wanted to run fast, but my legs did not, so I ran through the course at a bit lower intensity than planned. All in all the training compititions were a nice chance to test were I stand in the terrain type, and I could learn a lot. 

 

 

Norwegian Champs. Sprint and Sprint Relay

The Norwegian Championships in Sprint and Sprint Relay were held in Stavanger and Sandnes two weeks after EOC (26.-27.05.). In the qualification I felt a little rusty, but did an ok race winning my heat. In the Sprint Finale the same afternoon I started a little too slow, but found better into the race after some controls and ran a good race. I was in the fight for the medals until the finish, but ended 4th just seconds behind silver and bronse. In the Sprint Relay the day after I ran the 1st leg, and due to shorter forking to control 1, I was in the lead more or less all the way, and won the leg. My teammates Anders Haga, Øistein Fagerli Næss og Kristine Eide Rapp all fought well, and we ended as 19th. 

 

 

EOC 2018

The European Championships (EOC) in Ticino in Switzerland is history, and since then time has flown by. In the slopes of Monte S. Giorgio I achieved my best individual forest result with an 8th place in the Middle Distance, and I ran good through the whole week with 4th place in the relay and a 15th place in long (as a reserve, and short up to top 10). Additionally, I ran well in both qualification races with 1st place in the Sprint heat and a 3rd place in the Middle heat. Except for my performance in the Sprint Finale which was fare behind what I aimed for (33rd place), I am happy with the overall performance!
