shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280 0116

A bit of a rude awakerning to Swiss orienteering. Not sure that I have ever been a particular fan of the Jura. I ran the WOC middle quali in 2012 but that was pretty much it. Reminded me of France, very technical and rocky underfoot.

I'll just give a bit of a summary for my middle and long runs. Both were not great at all (even felt it physically on the long but I think that that is because I hadn't eaten enough [Switzerland is expensive yo, but not an excuse not to eat!]). Have to get used to some of the mapping here. There were many indistinct paths on the map that I struggled to discriminate between which led to quite a few of my mistakes. Also a few sloppy mistakes with the compass.

Onwards and upwards to next weekend, although I would still like to emphasise that I'm a sprinter ;).

Running 47:28 [3] 11.01 km (4:19 / km) +91m 4:08 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 33 0317

Run from Echallens through Villars-le-Terroir and into the forest. A bit disappointing that most of it was on concrete/tar and only got to the nice forest path at the end!

More exploring tomorrow and then lakeside run on Friday I think :)

Running 20:06 [3] 2.35 km (8:33 / km) +56m 7:39 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 33 0317

First training session with the Lausanne running club in Chalet-รก-Gobet along the forest tracks. Warm up with the old people, with a few exercises in between.

Running 44:46 [3] 9.6 km (4:40 / km) +132m 4:22 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 33 0317

Warm up with the "fast" group from the meeting point. This was quite slow and there were a few hills. This was then followed by 5km of descent, starting slow and building up speed towards the bottom. It was a lot of fun running on a dirt road in the middle of the forest.

16:43 (5km)

Running 36:28 [3] 6.09 km (5:59 / km) +221m 5:04 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 33 0317

Warm down back to the starting point. This felt very long! Also the occasional hard run up a hill..

Monday Aug 28 #

Note

Move over and done (although maybe will be moving in the near future again). Good to be in Switzerland, although a bit stressful with everything to organise. First running training tomorrow (tuesday) with the Lausanne running club.
