(rest day)

On a weekend of racing, basically a combination of different stages that involved orienteering (running) and MTB-O. 6 sections on Saturday in 11hours, 2 sections on Sunday in 5 hours.

Went with two pals, and our strategy was to have always two people running (as that's the min mandatory) so we took turns to run the sections. Run first (Trecking), second (mtbo) and fourth (mtbo) on Saturday and the two sections on Sunday (Trecking + mtbo). It was a score type so we had to leave some controls behind in order to stick to the minimum time that was predicted for each leg/section. Was quite annoying but neither the elite people that won went to all the controls. The trecking parts were "circular" (start-end at same point) but mtb were from one village to another, so all of them were mandatory (and the person not running will need to move the car to the next stage). We had to leave the last trecking (not the only ones, the vast majority did the same) as there was not much time left for us to complete the last (night!) bike on time, which was mandatory.

The orienteering part was minimum, maps with just paths. Was really looking forward for the trecking parts but was so annoying to see it wasn't really orienteering. Did quite enjoyed the cycling ones, but my technique for the rocky terrain is sth that needs improving. Was very slow going, but terrain wouldn't allow you for much speed neither. Good team work but we all think we could have gave a bit more! First time doing sth like this and I think it is difficult to know how much to give since it's a two day long competition. Definitely the best bit was to be out for so long in the mountains, sunny all day, even got some sunburn and some tan back ;)
