As every year my team met in Inzell during October for the last camp before the German championships. This year we were really lucky, because it was sunny during the whole 3 weeks. Because of the weather we were able to train as planned. At the first competition I skated under 4 minutes on the 3k on an outdoor track for the first time: 3.59.15 on that was a great start for the coming season. On the 12th of October I skated 1000m in 1.12.97 which was also a personal best outdoor for me. After the competitions we went several times to the sushi place in Salzburg to fill up our lost energy. On the 15th I´ve had to skate my first serious competition, it was almost a qualification for the Team pursuit. I was able to improve my time on the 3k and skated a 3.51.10 and I could compete with the other German skaters to consolidate my spot on the Teampursuit team. I had to cancel the last competition before the German championship because of a small cold, but I was able to go very confident to Berlin with the hope to qualify for the following world cups.
