O-Ringen and Canadian WOC Team Selections

     I have not posted anything in a very long time, so I thought I should try and write something before the madness of O-Ringen starts. I have been in Europe for just over a week now after an excellent winter training period where I ran 2:35.81 for 1000m and 4:09.87 for 1500m on the 200m indoor track.

     After a week of lighter training I think I have overcome the jet lag and my training has been going well over here in Sweden.  I did a few great training's in Gothenburg and now I am in Boras where I was able to get on a few more maps before O-Ringen starts which are being used as the Canadian selection races for the World Championships. Day 1 will be the long selection, the Elite sprint on Tuesday evening in Boras will be the sprint relay selection and Day 4 will be the middle selection.

Here are a couple of my training's I have done:

Sprint training in Gothenburg.
Last short training before O-Ringen went well.
     The O-Ringen races are going to be very physically tough because the ground is very soft, a bit rocky and uneven and the blueberry bushes all combine to drain your legs a lot quicker than normal. The orienteering also has its unique challenges with all the rock features, so the compass will be very important for me. My training has gone to plan and now I am just resting up before the long selection race tomorrow (Sunday).

Train on,
Damian
