Minna Kauppi

Pulppuilevan innokas, iloinen, päättäväinen ja supertehokas.


The rest days in Finland went in terms of a small stomache disease(again:() So the living was as quiet as on my webpages during the easter and we even had to reschedule our flights to Switzerland.

Yersterday I was, however, able to take part in a fast and easy relay training with other nations. I was happy to notice that the best of the best weren’t too much stronger than I was but I have to admit that I couldn’t take my favourite spot in the lead and struggled also behind. In fact, I also got disqualified , but that didn’t bother me too much. The most important information was that the girls aren’t as far away ahead as I thought. If I’m just able to leave these illness intervalls behind and take some road intervals instead it will all go nicely in the summer.  Now, we’ve got some trainings here in rainy (and almost snowy) Switzerland and on Saturday is time to take a first look at a sprint map. It must feel abit weird as I’ve done zero sprinttrainings during the winter not to even mention the kilometers that I haven’t done on roads. Still, as everything’s just plus now, I feel that maybe I’ll get surprised by my sprint performance as well. On Sunday, we’ll have long distance, too. But I have to consider very carefully if I take part in that rally. It’s possible that I wont have enough fuel for the whole course…I’ll put some photos and maps later on if I’ve got time and will.
