I got to race in the last 2 out of three race series. As you can see below the first day I spent most of the race in the penalty loop. Although I have been able to train some shooting combo this spring and early summer… shooting was ugly for the first race. I only hit one prone shot out of a possible 5 prone and 5 standing. this shows how hard it is to run full speed into the range and try to hit some targets  On Saturday it was quite blustery at times. I received a couple of calls that night that my rifle got blown off of the rack and maybe the sites got moved.  That was not the case I just did not shoot well.  Running fast was hard since running training is not the focus. In its stead concentration is on  Ski specific training primarily  Rollerskiing and Bicycle training. div Saturday’s Race shows how important shooting and especially shooting with pressure on is. Sunday luckily I redeemed my good name.  The next day the shooting was much improved as well as the result.  Even the the shooting still was not good on an international level I shot 15 out of 20 and had the fastest time of the day.  /divdivdiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”Always a Bad Sign/span/diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslNTKEADI/AAAAAAAACNs/No7UqXM2GG0/s1600-h/Summer+Biathlon+3.jpg”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 271px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslNTKEADI/AAAAAAAACNs/No7UqXM2GG0/s400/Summer+Biathlon+3.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5357917092098342962″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”My one hit of the Day!!/span/diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslNF22ZhI/AAAAAAAACNk/Vpi9IG9wTA0/s1600-h/Summer+Biathlon2.jpg”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 271px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslNF22ZhI/AAAAAAAACNk/Vpi9IG9wTA0/s400/Summer+Biathlon2.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5357917088528098834″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”The Range/span/diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslMubBxyI/AAAAAAAACNc/2CKe-HTOlOo/s1600-h/Summer+Biathlon+5.jpg”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 271px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslMubBxyI/AAAAAAAACNc/2CKe-HTOlOo/s400/Summer+Biathlon+5.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5357917082237388578″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”   Starting the Sprint Race/span br //diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslMUxk5dI/AAAAAAAACNU/hWo9vYFbLSw/s1600-h/Summer+BIathlon+1.jpg”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 271px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_n7a3IKFYbqU/SlslMUxk5dI/AAAAAAAACNU/hWo9vYFbLSw/s400/Summer+BIathlon+1.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5357917075352643026″ //aThe Organizer’s of the race put on a well organized World Class event.
