First physical test of the season - 12k

Even if my body disagrees, I wish that all training weeks were like the last one: perfect!
After a 2x3000+2x1000 on friday and a demanding day on Saturday as part of a great organization in an o'event in Lisbon...

...I had my 1st physical test of the season after 1,5months of training. Honestly, it was above expectations considering the training loads and how I was feeling today before the start. I ran with the first pack all the time and was left behind in the last 2km. I was 4th overall, with good feelings from the 3km to the 7km.
Next weekend, Spain!

Training in Viseu (2dRerun)

Nice and tiring training weekend in Viseu with the Swedish NT and some Finns.

Sprint in Vouzela - not in the flow yet:

50c Control Picking - One of those sessions where you have to reset your attitude/skills in the end and check what went wrong. It was a total disgrace but I've taken my positive lessons about it: HERE

Night corridor - with the fog and low visibility, it was a real challenge: HERE

Mass starts - I was physically trashed :

I need more weekends like this to improve my navigation skills.
By the way, this 2DRerunViewer is something from another world: simple and efficient!
