Pictures from Portugal
You can now find all my pictures
from last week’s training-camp with the Norwegian National Team in Portugal. The first days we were on the Algarve coast, and participated in Portugal O-meeting. I have now scanned all the maps, and you can find them in better quality on the page with maps from competitions spring 2008
After POM we went some days to Evora, where we also were last year. At the last day of POM I felt pain behind my left knee when I was running, and I was not able to run the days in Evora. But I had three sessions with roller-skies and was also cycling through the sprint course in Evora City. The cycle-orienteering went well because I borrowed Holger Hotts map-holder for bike. I had to be really concentrated in the narrow streets with a lot of people and cars, and the technique was similar to ski-orienteering.
I have not tried to run since I came home, and I don’t need to either because tomorrow morning I am going to Bulgaria
on Ski-o World Cup

POM – maps from all 4 days
Since last Thursday I have been in Portugal on a training-camp with the Norwegian National Team. The last four days Portugal O-meeting has been as arranged on the Algarve coast, and I have been running all the races. The terrains were not as nice as I had hoped, but maybe they did not choose the nicest pine forest because they wanted to make it more challenging. I have not been running so much the last months because of a lot of skiing, so I was not running fast on all races.
The first race on Saturday was a Middle distance close to where we lived in Tavira. I was running in moderate speed, and did a good technical race except to the 10th control. Anders Nordberg won clearly.
Sunday it was a Long distance close to Faro, and this race was also a World Ranking Event. I tried to run fast, but did some mistakes. I have not been running more than one hour for a long time, and the last part of the course was tough. Anders Nordberg won also this race.
Monday it was a new Long distance in the same area as the previous day. I was running in easy speed, but did a good technical race. Jonn Are Myren was fastest.
The last race on Tuesday was a Middle distance close to the Spanish border. The map-scale should be 1:10 000, but was actually 1:15 000, so many runner stopped to early to the first controls and lost time. The courses were also 50 % longer then they should be. I was running fast the fist half of the course, but then I suddenly felt pain behind my left knee, and had to walk the rest of the course. Erik Axelson was fastest at the last race.
Overall Oli Johnson won in front of my club-mates Stig Alvestad and Audun Bjerkreim Nilsen. In the Women’s class Laura Hokka won in front of Elise Egseth. Results
and the POM page
Yesterday I came to Evora where we are going to stay until we are going home tomorrow evening. I have not been able to run the last two sessions because the pain behind me knee, and have therefore been roller-skiing. But I hope to be able to run this evenings sprint in Evora City.

POM, NC, WC, MOC and JK
The coming months will be quite busy for me, with a lot of travelling to competitions and training-camps different places in Europe.
The sickness I had last week took a bit longer time than I had hoped, and I was 5 days without training. But from Tuesday this week I have been training as normal, and yesterday I went to Portugal for a one week long training-camp with the Norwegian National Team in Orienteering. We are staying on the Algarve coast, where we are going to take part in Portugal O-meeting the four coming days. The last two days we are going to train in Evora. When I am coming home to Norway I will go direct to Oslo, where the Norwegian Championship in Relay and a race in the Norwegian Cup in Ski-orienteering will he held next weekend.
Almost straight after that weekend I am traveling to Bulgaria, where it is World Cup in Ski-orienteering. Before this winter I had not planed to take part in any more international competitions in Ski-o after EOC in Switzerland. But because it went quite well in Switzerland and I think it will be good to got some more international competitions before my big goal in Ski-o, next years Ski-o WOC in Japan, I decided to go to Bulgaria even if it will be very much travelling the coming weeks.
When we are talking about Ski-o I can inform you that I last weekend finally scanned the maps from the European Championship, and they can now be found on the page with Ski-o maps from 2007/2008
In the end of February and beginning of March I am going to MOC in South-Italy. The first weekend there are three events, which in overall counts as Mediterranean Open Championship. The following week there is training, before it is two sprint events in the end. I am really looking forward to this trip to Italy, and hope it will be nice weather.
In the Easter I am going to JK in Great Britain, which this year are arranged close to Guildford south of London. It was World Cup there in 2005, and I have been the nice terrain there several times before. This year will be the 4th time in the last 5 years I am going to JK in the Easter, and it has always been a high quality event in all ways.

Pictures from Ski-o EOC in Engadin
Last weeks European Championship in Ski-orienteering was a very good experience. After the relay we had a nice banquet and ski-session in the top of the sunny Engadin valley before we went home after two wonderful weeks in Switzerland. You can find all my pictures from both Pre-camp in Andermatt
and Ski-o EOC in Engadin
Unfortunately I got sick yesterday, and have spent most of the last two days in bed. I felt really bad yesterday and got high fever. My temperature was as much as 40 last night, but now it on way down and I feel much better. I will hopefully be back in good shape soon, but the coming weekend Norwegian Championship in Ski-o
will probably be too early for me.
