Last week i took place on a three day competition "Memorijal Cika Duska Jovanovica" on Rajac.First day we ran the night score sprint on the last year sprint area from last year competition.It was a mass start and it reminded me on 10Mila that i looked weekend before...I felt very nervous as i was hearing all those people just breathing.Finaly we got the maps and started running.I made a big mistake taking a middle route choice and then i continued the circle.The best route choice was first to go to number 38 and then continue the circle vice versa than mine.I lost about 30 seconds at the control number 40 waiting for other people to jump over fence.The rest of the race went slight but i finished at the second place 6 second behind the winner.I was wearing a garmin that night given to me by one elite runners,so i will leave my route choice by pen and garmin route.Garmin route on M21E mapRoute by pen my map
Second day race was held on the new map placed in the village Cibutkovica.I made a big mistake already at the first control.I took the left path and realised that when when i arrived to the yellow area then i went straight trough forest to my control.The rest of the race i ran full tempo and i was really surprised that i was able to run uphills very fast so my uphill trainings payed off..:)I finished the race on the first place despite my 2 minute mistake at the first control.I learned i must work on my concentration too because EYOC is coming fast...Map with route second day
Third day race was held on the same map,but on the left side.That day was the Serbian Championship at long distance.The course was very small only 3km but soon i found out why. It was almost impossible to run because the depressions were covered with thorns and chopped wood and made map reading and running too very hard.And it was 300m of climbing too on such a small course.I havent had any problems with the map only i had to take the left route choice at the fourth control because i had to go pass the big undergrowth that was in the straight way.The only and the big mistake was at 9th control.First i went straight to her but i couldnt see it because it was in big grass and undergrowth.So i thought i was on the similar path that to your left side and went right untill i seen small depression and ran fast back to the control.I finished the race with again 2 minutes mistake 1 minute at the 9th and 1 minute at the running over the undergrowth and bad route choice at 4th.Once again i ran the uphills very good and i was satisfied with my physical perfomance.I won the race with about 10 minutes lead over the 2nd.I was really surprised and i was the equal winner of all three days and i took two gold medals for the equal and long championships.Now i have two of the two possible wins on the championships(long,sprint)and i saved my place in the national team.So i will continue my training before the EYOC and i hope i will give my best especially at the long and sprint distance...Third day routeResults and splits

Danas se na oplencu odrzalo prvenstvo Srbije u sprintu...Trku sam završio kao prvoplasirani sa minutom razlike između mene i drugog.Pred start sam imao tremu ali setio sam se jednog članka u kome se kaze da se pred start setimo da smo tesko trenirali za ovu trku i da će sve proći dobro tako da sam se smirio.Trka je počela brzim tempom koji sam drzao bez problema do 8. kontrole bez grešaka.Ali onda mali pad koncentracije na osmoj kontroli i neznam zbog cega prosao sam pored nje i nastavio do ugla u šumi kao sto se vidi,i dalje zbunjen otrcao sam do devete kontrole,ali tada uvideo svoju gresku i nastavio trku punim tempom.Drzao sam taj tempo do kraja trke.Zavrsio sam trku sa oko minut greške.I zadovoljan i nezadovoljan sam ovom trkom,ali samo polako ovo mi je tek treće sezona u ovom sportu i mislim da sam dosta napredovao.One second mistake is still not good enough.Karta sa ucrtanim trekom

On saturday 7.3 the 2. day of MOC was held at Kalemegdan.The distance was sprint and i ran the course MA 3.2 km. It was raining during the whole day so the floor was slippery and muddy.The map was complicated because there were a lot of walls and the rain made it even worse.The first time was 17 minutes and my time was 22 minutes and i was rated 10.I cant say i am not satisfied because i have beaten a lot of elite from sweden and switzerland
.On sunday 8.3 at the physical testing for the national team was held at Kosutnjak..the normas for M16 category were 28 30 for EYOC and 31 30 for BOC.The course was 6 km and it was sepparated in two laps 3.2 km and 2.6 km.Because the rain was falling the whole past day course was very muddy and made running hard.Already at the start me and two other runners Djordje Arizanovic from M20 and Luka Terzic from M16 seppareted from the others.I thought in myself that i only have to follow the tempo of guy from M20 and i could pass norma for eyoc.The first lap gone well 17 min but i decided to fast up my tempo.On about the half of the second lap the other guy from M16 Luka Terzic just felt down without strenght to continue,but in my mind it was only to follow the tempo.Close to the end there was an uphill lengt about 150 m and it was the hardest part of the lap i collected my last atoms of strenght ran uphill and sprinted to the finish.I was only 13 sec behind the leader but 30 sec over the norma.I was really satisfied with my running and i think im in good form for Lipica Open Slovenia 13-15 march..MOC 2. day Kalemegdan map with course

Today it was the first day of MOC in Deliblatska pescara.I was starting in 22. minute and i was chasing Petar Saric(m21e).To first control i ran middle tempo to get into the card and than i ran the other 13 controls very well full tempo witout mistake and then i got into the forest to the 15. control.The forest was slow runnable and full of thorns and I had no way to get to the control from the route i chosed.I found a very hard and painfull way to the 15. but my concentration fell.i made mistakes to 16 and 17. too and finished the course with the 17 min. mistakes only in this forest.I runned in category MA,with the folks from M21E and im not and am satisfied in the same time..But this was only the training and i have much to learn because im so young(14 years
) For the bigger picture

Today we had a training at Lake Kudrec...the terraing 2-3 km from my house.I supposed it will be a same boring training as always at the map i know as my courtyard.But than came the surprise,the training was not held with an ordinary club coach,the man from Slovenia came from Kopaonik where he planned courses and did maps for EYOC 2009 KOPAONIK.So he decided to do a training with us.First we ran about 1.5 km to heat up and than we done some gymnastics.Than we done some map training,i thought i was in bad conidtion for forest and uphills because i didnt train in forest because of snow.I surprised myself how i had strenght to do uphills fast and i was in one hand very happy.The map changed a lot since snow melted the lake grow up and sinked a couple of roads and on small roads were floating rivers
... And one more thing tommorow is MOC first day middle at Deliblatska Pescara.The terrain is very complicated and it has much uphills and downhills.A lot of folks from other countries are coming even from Sweden(Emil Wingstedt too and i hope i will take an autograph from him.)In all i will have a lot of concurrence and very hard terrain.I am counting at myself...
