Being true Swedish and celebrating midsummer

Thursday Jun 22 #


I've decided there's a few things I need to change on this trip to make it worthwhile. As I've been noticing them hindering me in the training in the last few days:
1. Eat better - I've been starting a couple of trainings hungry the last few days which really just doesn't work
2. Sleep more - I'm really tired
3. Stretch after training - definitely been feeling things unnecessarily tight.
I think all of these will be a lot easier from now because as of today I will be living by myself/with a friend (i.e. Not with people I don't know so well) until after the Fin5 which gives me a bit more freedom to do what I want

Orienteering 1:08:46 [2] 8.21 km (8:23 / km)

Sticklinge - Lidingö
Went to Rachel and Hectors for the evening.
WU from their flat to the start with Rachel.
Map with no paths. 2 pretty big mistakes... basically just really need to watch my direction a lot better and start concentrating. I am using the features really well, however it's so easy over here to make things fit wrongly. Anyway a lot learned definitely
WD back to the flat, followed by a BBQ at the club house (The Pink House)

Orienteering 1:25:54 [3] 10.4 km (8:16 / km)
shoes: Yellow Inov8 X-talons 212

With the EUOC boys in the area NE of the Ravinen Clubhut
WU to the start with Felly
3 loops. Once again not entirely sure of the scale and contours due to some dodgy printing, but a really nice area and definitely really tricky navigation (especially without kites). Really aimed to only read my map if I was running as I've been getting lazy recently... really accurate on about 85% of the controls, super confident I was at the correct feature. 1 control I made an aweful mistake - probably the only leg I've ever looked at and honestly not known how to tackle it, and not very well was how it turned out. Still not exactly sure where I went, but recon I just bananad massively. Rest of the control pretty sure I was in the right place, just not 100% confident.
WD with Nathan back to the hut

Track session with Gustav, Helena and 2 other national team runners.
They were doing their session, and I did 200m, 2x300m, 4x200m, 2x300m, 200m, just joining in the back of them as they passed.
So tough. Windy too which didn't help

Älta (otley)
Test running some controls for Viktor for the Ravinen Comp in a few weeks.
Really weird scale (meant to be 1:10000, but was printed weirdly), coupled with being pretty hungry and tired, and getting used to the mapping meant this could have gone better. Mostly ok, just struggled to see what was a rock and what wasn't, and doubted when I was at the control sites (no kites)

+cycle there and back

Ravinen 3, last leg after Julia, Ebba and Tilda
What an awesome event. Didn't really know what to expect, however this was far different.
Went out in ~190th and felt quite chilled setting off. Knew it was going to be tough terrain out there so attacked it, but also making sure I nailed the navigation, as this was the thing loosing people most time.
Went over my ankle coming down the slope to 3. Had it taped which definitely saved me big time. Was pretty sore right at the start but loosened off as I kept going, then got a bit sorer again towards the end. Dissapoining as it meant I couldn't push properly, either in the terrain or on the paths. However maybe going a bit slower was good for the navigation.
No time lose navigation wise except for 1 control (ran about 10m and just didn't see it, then took a bit to relocate and go back). Kept in good control and managed to focus on myself among the madness around me.
Kept roughly the same position through the first few radio controls until I hurt my ankle, then started slipping down a bit but finished 263.
Really happy on a whole (ankle could have been so much worse). Awesome experience and made to feel so at home in Team Ravinen. Great to be part of what ended up being such a good weekend for them with their guys team
