Last week, I participated in the selection races for the European elite sprint championships. After the 5000m physical test, we had 3 orienteering races in Ticino. My main goal was to gain experience in order to qualify for the European Championships next year or in two years. I didn’t think I would qualify this year because I still have to improve my technique in the sprint. Moreover, physically I was not at all where I wanted to be because last month I had problems with my calf so I did most of my trainings on the bike.
Now, I will focus on the next events in order to get stronger for the second part of the season, which will be in the forest and I will also participate in mountain races.
