A few words from RostrupHere is a bit of a translation of an article Jorgen Rostrup wrote on his training as a junior.
I've just translated a little bit of the article (focusing on technique training):
If you're doing three high intensity sessions a week, two of them ought to be in the forest.
Up to 1/3rd of the total physical training should be with a map. O' technique should be trained year round.
O' technique training should be at a relatively high speed...It is important to learn the running technique for going fast in the forest...
O' technique...shouldn't always be done with others. Training with others can make for too much stress and then the technique suffers. When you train alone, you have time to concentrate on what you should be doing at your own speed...
I'm not sure I've got the translation quite right. Some of Rostrup's writing is a bit hard for me to translate. I also struggle a bit with the Norwegian. posted by Michael | 8:26 PM
