Jonsered Training

On Saturday we hopped onto the Blå Express Bus to the Jonsered training map. It is a ‘middle distance relevant’ area. We both agree that it is one of the hardest places we’ve tried to ‘orienteer’ in. Notice the huge cliffs and the many confusing contours. We’re worried about having to race or go fast in this terrain.We spent the morning getting buffeted by the strong wind on the Göta River. We took a public transport ferry ride west along the river.

Here is a picture of our accommodation until Tuesday night.

This morning we met the event director Mats. We collected some more training maps, including the Swedish and Danish JWOC selection race map. We will try it this afternoon. It looks a bit crazy. We’ll put it up tomorrow.

We hope everyone enjoyed Gauteng Champs!

Hi Alex and Dylan, we are jealous of that lovely forest. However we all had fun on the koppies at Hennops and Voortrekker Monument.

The weather was nice and cool so it was pleasant running. The fastest finish split at Hennops was a Blesbok who did it in 8 seconds compared to mine (12 seconds)

Enjoy your training.
