Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Jorn Sundby's AdviceJorn Sundby is a former Norwegian Junior Team coach. Here are a few of his ideas:
Give yourself one to three things to think about/focus on during your training sessions or races. Write these things down on a piece of paper or in your training log. It is important that you focus on just a few things. The specific focus will vary with the type of training, type of terrain, and the things you are trying to improve. Here are a few examples:
Always use an attackpoint.
Keep your head up -- look ahead and look around.
Use trails for route choice if possible.
Walk to the first control.
Stop as soon as you feel uncertain.
Use the compass.
Slow down at the attackpoint.
Read the map.
My translation is a bit rough, but I think it gets the main idea. If you can read Norwegian, take a look at the entire article. posted by Michael | 9:30 PM
