Last weeks we participed in some important portuguese competitions.
Portugal "O" Meeting 2009 - a organization by CPOC, the Mariana's club.
Monday, February 9, 2009
Mariana also went to a competition but in the South. Was the 5th stage of the third trophy Ori-Alentejo where Mariana did the medium course with 5,1km, that she won doing 33'45''.
On Sunday, GD4Caminhos was organizing an orienteering trainning, but for people that was starting orienteering. It was in Arvore, a village that belongs to Vila do Conde (the town where Isabel lives), in a map that is very easy for us, because we have already run there thousands of times. Joana and Isabel took the oportunity and went there for trainning. It was such a rainny day, and also with a lot of wind. We started the trainning running 30' slow, for warming up, with the map in the pocket. Than we made the course (3,5km). After that we ran slowly some minutes more. Overall we made 75'. It was very nice because we were trainning toghether which is really rare, specially for Isabel that runs alone everyday.

Last weekend (24 th to 25 th January) there was the NAOM, a organization by GD4C, the Joana’s and Isabel’s club. Like we had said in the last post, Isabel and Joana didn´t run because they were helping in the organization (Isabel was the speaker of the event and Joana was in the technical part where she was putting the controls on the terrain), so, Mariana was the only O-Laranjita participating. She ran in D20, and without her principals adversaries running, she won the 3 races =D (the middle distance, the night sprint distance and the long distance).
The night sprint was a special race because there were two different scales. The first part of the course was done in a scale of 1/5000 and when we were more less in the middle of the course, we had to turn the map and run in 1/1000. This second part was all done in a park. The woman 20 had 2,6km and Mariana won, realizing the race in 19’19’’.
The long distance was in a map principally physical but also with a part with a lot of stones that became the course also technical. Mariana did 58’53’’ in 7,1km. She was doing a very good race until came to the 9th control and lose too much time in the 10th and 11st control (she lost at least 7/8 minutes on these mistakes).
Was a good orienteering event where we can highlight the victories of Michal Smola and Eva Juřeníková in man and woman elite. You can see the results and some photos here.

waiting for the start..
already in 3rd place =D
Next weekend there's a National Ranking Competition. It's going to be in Alter do Chão (South of Portugal) and it's going to be organized by Joana's and Isabel's club, Grupo Desportivo 4Caminhos. Michael Smola (2nd last WOC) and Eva Jurenikova (8th last WOC) are the more important athletes running. Joana and Isabel are going to be organizing so they are not going to run, but Mariana is. Good Luck ;) After the competition, as usual, we're going to write about that and download maps and splits. Check all information about this great competition in www.gd4caminhos.com/naom2009

This weekend Joana stayed at home recovering (she was sick during Christmas holidays), Mariana stayed at home too resting from de POF trainning Camp and also making the last things to school, that starts tomorrow. Isabel went to a Regional Competition, not very important, but always nice to train orienteering. This Competition was in Quiaios, in the Centre of Portugal. Like it wasn't very important, it was for trainning, Isabel ran in WE. Her opinion about he competition:
I knew the map was going to be the same so the night before when I was drawing my route choices and analysing my race I decided that next day I would try to be perfect when I was in the forest, and run the fast I could, because of the sand, in the paths. I started very well, although I lost some time to the 3rd control because the path between the greens some times "disappeared", and I got to the 11th when I was trying to reach the 3rd. The same thing happened in control no 7 where I got to the 12th first. I was very tired so I started to lost a few time in each control because I couldn't get focus. I lost some time again in control no 12. The last part was terrible because I just needed to run in the sand the fast as I could. I made 1h 13. After two days running in the sand and with a lot of wood on the ground I was first in Woman Elite :)

Last post you could see how Mariana's training camp was, now you can see how Joana and Isabel spent theirs last days of 2008.
GD4C, their club, organized a training Camp in Alter do Chão, south of Portugal, from 27 to 30 December. The training Camp was prepared by Maria Sá (Isabel's sister, one of the best WE atlhetes in Portugal, http://www.mariasa.com/) and it happened in the maps that are going to be used in the next National Competition, Norte Alentejano O'Meeting. We are going to be in the organization that's why we could train in the maps, new maps. Obviously we can't download the maps to here because they are new, and they are going to be used in the competition.
Joana was sick so she didn't run all the trains. See our trainings:
-Line course, 6km
-WE, NAOM midle distance course, 4,3km
-25 controls training, 3km (for training focus and changing direction fast)
-long choices training, 7,2km
Maria Sa also did, every day, orienteering classes, meetings, where we were able to discuss our route choices during the day and we also discuss the "Route to Christmas", from World of O. We can also promise that NAOM it's going to be an excellent competition, with amazing maps. All of you are invited, check the last information in http://www.gd4caminhos.com/naom2009/
