My last training before leaving to WOC in Trondheim was 3000m during Latvian Athletics Association cup. It might appear to be a wired choice, but it gave me some idea about my physical condition. My last training weeks were more or less planned to prepare myself for demanding Norwegian terrain so my mind was set to training mode for this time. I started out carefully and after first few laps realized that my pace won’t change a lot during the rest of race. Result 8’44” and 7th place. I am happy about my last 200m which I did in less than 29” and my team mate Mareks who won race with 8’14” reminding about his PB’s from past.
