Selected for the National Team in Ski-o
The Norwegian National Team in Ski-orienteering was presented yesterday, and I am still among the runners at the Elite-group. After a few years with less focus on ski-o in 2005 and 2006 I have again competed on international level the last winter, with a relay bronze and individual sixth place from the European Championship as the best result. I think the ski-orienteering has gained me well, also as an orienteering runner, and I will continue with that the coming winter with the World Championship in Japan
as the big goal.
It is still ski conditions close to Trondheim, and last week I had as much as 5 sessions on skies. The running training has of course the main focus this time of the year, but it is really nice and relaxing to have some easy skiing sessions in the sunny weather. On Sunday I was wearing only shorts and t-shirt while I was skiing. The right shoulder I dislocated two weeks ago is much better now, but I am not using the right arm much when I am skiing.The Norwegian National Team in Ski-o 2008/2009

Relay in Moravian Open Championship
Yesterday the Norwegian Team finished the training-camp for WOC in Czech Republic by running the Relay in the Moravian Open Championship
. It was a strong start field with several teams from all nations which were on training-camp and a lot of local teams. I was running the first leg for the Norwegian first team. My leg went quite well, except for some smaller mistakes. I was among the leading teams the whole leg, and could change over to Anders Nordberg on second place, 13 seconds behind Jan Prochazka from the Czech team.
Michal Smola did a great second leg for the Czech team, and changed over more than 3 minutes before a group consisting of Olav Lundanes Emil Wingstedt, Marian Davidik and Anders Nordberg. On the last leg Tomas Dlabaja secured the victory for the Czech team in front of Sweden’s David Andersson, Lars Skjeset for the Norwegian second team and Audun Weltzien for our team. Results

Long distance in Moravian Open Championship
Today the third event of the Moravian Open Championship
was held with a Long distance. The race was won by Emil Wingsted in front of Anders Nordberg and Michal Smola.
I had planed to run in easy speed, but tried to be focused and do the same route choices as I would have done in a competition. Lena Eliasson won for the third day in row the women’s class, with Heli Jukola and Anne Margrethe Hausken on the following places. Results
Tomorrow it is Relay and I will run first leg for one of the Norwegian teams with Anders Nordberg and Audun Weltzien on the last two legs.

Sprint in Moravian Open Championship
Today the second event of the Moravian Open Championship
was held with a long sprint course in both flat forest, open areas and city. The start field was strong even if many of the runners from Norway, Sweden and Finland were not competing today.
I did a good race, and finished on 5th place, 59 seconds behind Michal Smola. Andrej Khramov and Valentin Novikov were 2nd and 3rd. It was really tight, with 15 runners less then one minute behind me. Lena Eliasson won the women’s class also today. Results
Tomorrow it is Long distance and on Sunday Relay. After two sprint races the last two days I will not run fast tomorrow because I feel quite tired now and want to have some energy left to the Relay.
