30/2007 WC in O-ringen

MONDAY

9:05 AM: 20' running + 113' orienteering + 12' running. 28km. WC 3 in Mjölby.
The long distance was pretty interesting competition. I didn't orienteer well at
the beginning and made a big mistake in the end. Otherwise I liked this one much
and saw that the speed has developed compared to others after the back problems
have eased a bit. 11th place is enough but the poor orienteering isn't - ever ;-).

TUESDAY

7:33 AM: 16' running. 3km. Legs felt sooo stiff but started to recover.
9:05 AM: 25' running + 33' orienteering + 15' running. 13,5km. The WC4 in Mjölby.
I finished 4th - the best result in the big international races since 2003. The
performance was two-parted - at the beginning I made quite a lot misses but was
anxious to improve my performance later on. It helped and I could climb up about
35 positions from the 1st intermediate control to the finish. I'm happy with the
result! But what comes to the performance, you know... ;-)

Mjölby. I didn't feel so good anymore and legs were very slow. This is maybe the
