Tomorrow the EOC finally starts with the Sprint Relay! I am looking forward to run together with Andreas Kyburz, Martin Hubmann and Rahel Friederich and fight for the medals in Bruntal.
On Sunday the Sprint Qualification and the Sprint Final will be held in Jesenik. I am ready to accept the challenge to race two races in one day in the very though terrain of Bludiste Spa in Jesenik.
After three rest days I will be at the start of the Middle distance and finally on Saturday the starter's gun will be shut for the Relay, where I will be running together with Julia Gross and Sabine Hauswirth.
Am I ready? Yes!! For the moment I did everything I could. I am looking forward to the first World Cup races in Poland! First up is the Middle distance tomorrow!

How time flies! I've been already living eight weeks here in Gothenburg and I finally start feeling at home here. Even though the weather is sometimes making the trainings harder, we have also been enjoying many sunny days here. Also training has gone well lately and I enjoy running in the Swedish forests a lot!
On Saturday I am leaving for the first orienteering training camp with the national team in 2016! I am looking forward to a great week with training and meeting all Swiss runners finally.
In the last two month I've been running at home in Zimmerwald (Switzerland), in Gothenburg and in Teneriffe in my physical training camp. Everywhere it's so nice to run! I created a short video from every location with me running!
Don't we have the most varied and most beautiful stadion in the world?
Running and Orienteering, I'm loving it!
More than a week ago Gabriel and I packed all our personal belongings and drove to Lörrach to take the night car train to Hamburg. Even though we were not sure if we had all our most important training equipment, our car was full and our final destination present. Yes, it was a long journey traveling all the way to Gothenburg, but it was worth it!
We have been here in Gothenburg for two weeks now and I really enjoyed coming back to Sweden. After living in Mora between 2004 and 2007, being back to Sweden feels like home. The people of GMOK have been really generous and helpful and they organised a nice flat for us near Skatås and the GMOKs club house.
The training has been a bit difficult because at the moment there is ice everywhere. Therefore I only did the interval training with the club on Tuesday and had to run on the treadmill the day after. Nevertheless I already did five great orienteering trainings! :-)
Although I am quite used to the Swedish language and life, there are some funny differences we already noticed in the last few days:
So far so good…
I am now looking forward to an other nice club training. Later we are heading to Tenerife with a group of “none”-orienteers in order to focus on physics and speed. Hopefully there are going to be 10 nice and sunny training days. Afterwards we will continue to train here in Sweden, our new home.
