Run warm up/down 10:00 [2]
shoes: Inov-8 Mudlcaw 330 August 2009

Warmup before some long distance training. To the start.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] *** 6.6 km (9:05 / km) +400m 6:59 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Mudlcaw 330 August 2009

First Hungary training. Bukkszentkereszt.

A lot of contours on this map, with one of the steeper areas in the area on the west side.

Took this at a moderate pace, walking the steeper hills. Orienteering was rather straightforward and the running a lot of fun. So much so, that I ran well past #4. Did controls 1-6, 9, and then most of the way to the finish. On the way to the finish I ran up a hill that I soon noticed was covered with foot-high blackberries. I was tempted to stop, but kept going until the top of the hill, and stopped there.

Unlike French Creek, blackberries there were easy to run through and covered with berries.

WOC 2009 Route Choice Training0001

Run warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.5 mi (6:40 / mi)
shoes: Inov-8 Mudlcaw 330 August 2009

To and from the sprint training with Ross.

Run 18:00 [4] **** 2.3 km (7:50 / km) +85m 6:36 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Mudlcaw 330 August 2009

Sprint training at Miskolc-Tapolca. (Cave Baths).

First portion of the course was very tough, not helped by not having controls or stakes out there. Still, I think I did OK. And after 5, I was generally much more confident.

This mapping and terrain will be tricky on the sprint.


Developed a nasty blister from the new Inov-8s on the right heel.
