Another great weekend after POM. Maybe too physically demanding for me right now. On the long distance I made some mistakes but was satisfied for the flow in some parts of the course. I think that the 12th control was strange with many athletes complaining about it. On the middle distance, 2 big mistakes and weaker legs.
(right click on the maps and "open in new window" has better quality)

Next weekend, training camp in Viseu with the Swedish national team (if I survive tomorrow's 12h emergency room).

POM 2012: no omelets without eggs

It was a great event and I consider the WRE map, one of my favourites in Portugal. I did some big mistakes but, most of all, I felt physically weak. My 2 weeks of training after the surgery weren't enough to do a decent performance but I enjoyed a lot my time in Viseu.

I hope that Daniel Hubmann doesn't mind my courses overlaying his tratrac's. It's great when top athletes show their performances to the general public, so we, weaker athletes, are able to learn with them (my course in red).

(In this newer blogger version, you're only able to check the maps if you download them.)
