First victory of the season.

victory

Last saturday, I participated in  a biathlon test race against the Finnish and some of the Swedish national biathlon team. It was a 11km long test race with four shootings where every missed target resulted in a 30 second time penalty. I have had a feeling  that I was in  great shape the last week, so I was excited to see how good I could performe.

I started really great and on the three first shootings I hit all targets. But in the last shooting I messed up and ended with only hitting two of the five targets. So I hit 17 out of 20 targets and ended with 1.30min in penalty time. Luckily I had a better speed on the track than I have ever had before, and I wasn`t the only one to miss some targets, so I ended up with winning the competition with 42 seconds.

This was the first test race that I have had this season with the competition of other biathletes so I am really happy to win this competition and it gave me a huge confidence boost that I will use to  keep me motivated when my body and mind is getting tired of all training.
