The first days of freedom have brought CdR a pretty high level of satisfaction.Since the next and last exam of the HMS(helse,miljø,sikkerhet)is an english test, our main character will write the coming entries here at Machacas -o in english. Maybe
Sun shines in Kristiansand, temperatures are surprisingly high, birds sing(specialy seaguls at 3 in the " night"), butterflies breed, and CdR run already on thursday his first training in Sørlandsterreng,which is quite tough,considering that vegetation grows up above knees.It was a korridor in Vestheiene with Gjelsten and Stormoen.Somehow a mystic experience to smell the nordic vegetation again,feel the marshes and notice the need of permanent concentration.
For any annoying reason the gps don´t work properly/accurate and the bracelet broke that day,therefore there is no track from thursday onwards.By the way, this was just 15 minutes biking from home...just like in Casa de Campo....
Friday it was a control picking in Baneheia and travelling to Oslo,where CdR would participate in the paralel races of Junior VM testløp.
the pace was safe and controled at the beggining, which did not avoid a mistake in control 9.Then, master Weltzien appeared.CdR could actualy follow his speed and also read and do orienteering.Weltzien showed us that there is life beyond "rett på" and it works,sometimes.
Also, CdR could see a delicated,meticulous, even erotic could be said, use of the contour lines:
|CdR in red eats three contours.Weltzien in blue caress the contours.|
, blueberries almost swallowed us on the SKRÅLI terrain.Again a lot of sun, the hit of the moment
, and a lot of fun and real orienteering. CdR is satisfied with most of the routechoices and really enjoyed some moments which seldom happen in Spain, mainly those ones when one have to grab the map with two hands ,reading it, keeping direction and trying to run efficiently in the terrain(for example, attacking 7th control on the downhill).
Many tasty delicatessen are coming next week, starting with Jukola uttaksløp
on wednesday, and the very expected training camp with the rest of the spaniards in Halden, preparing WOC. We must be careful, my precious, because our body has been stucked in a chair for long months and still need time to adapt.
