National team Belgium: results physical testrun
Last saturday (13/12) the Belgian national team ran the physical testrun for the first time this season. It was not really a test, it was rather an introduction to the track. The male athletes had to run six rounds of around two kilometers (each round 30m uphill) and the female orienteers five rounds. Most of the runners took it easy and ran a few fast laps. The results are visible below.
The real test will take place on 07/03/2009. The time-limit will be 45 minutes for both men (12km) and women (10km). For your information: the Belgian night championships will take place one week later (14/03), so not on the same date than the physical testrun like announced in the past.
Some Belgian orienteers started using the website attackpoint.org with online trainingschemes. It can be a motivation to read about trainings from other runners (specially during winter). Below some weblinks:
