Hibernation

Orienteering is not a winter sport. Sure night orienteering is great fun but on the whole not a huge amount seems to happen from the period from September through to February. Miles are logged ready for the summer.

In February I awoke from this slumber to go to Barbate for 9 days with Lillomarka. This was a much needed break from the winter routine and I had a great week trying to regain some good feeling in my technique. March has been quite busy also, spending my weekends travelling to go training. 

In all my winter training has gone well, I think. On Friday I will run the first race of the season, the JK. After that I will have more of an idea but it is still early doors.

No-one wins anything in training and spring time form will mean little come the summer.
