Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Not my dayI started a local O' race today. It was not my day.
Warming up felt ok.
I had a short climb on the way to the first control and something felt wrong. I was struggling to breath. I walked a bit and felt a bit better, then started up again and had breathing trouble again. I did a mix or running - walking - trying to catch my breath - walking - runnning for about 40 minutes. Then I stopped.
I think the problem was exposure to Ragweed pollen. I hate Ragweed.

The coast near Hotel Hellnar:
It was nearly dark when I took the photo. I braced the camera on a wall and had the shutter open for 30 seconds. That's why the water looks so strange.

I had a similar, but not quite as severe, experience two weekends ago at our event. The course took us through a field of the stuff and I was occasionally in a cloud of pollen. I don't normally experience allergies but I had bouts of mild breathing trouble the race of the run.Post a Comment
