Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Sunday, October 19, 2003
Nothing to writeI can't think of what to write. So, here are five unrelated thoughts:
More inspiration for an orienteer getting old...Hakan Eriksson (42) was named to the Swedish national team. You might remember he won the Swedish sprint selection race but was left of the WOC team. Next year Sweden will have three runners in the sprint race, so Eriksson probably has a better chance of making the team.
Blodslitet is a Norwegian race a bit like the Hudson Highlander. This year's race was 24 km. Check out the M21 course here.
I think staying healthy and injury free is an important part of training. I've been sick with a cold for a week. I get mad at myself when I'm sick.
Although it isn't an orienteering page, Fasterskier.com has some interesting training information.
Another thought about next week's race in Connecticut...The footing will probably be rocky. Going from Kansas City to northeast rocky terrain requires an adjustment. I've found that after running in rocky forest for about 20-40 minutes I begin to run smoother. I'll make sure to put in a bit of a run on Friday (the day before the first race) at Harriman.
A special 6th bonus unrelated thought! The Hyde Park Campus of the Culinary Institute of America looks like it'd be a good place for some sprint orienteering. Check out the campus map, the USGS topo and an aerial photo. posted by Michael | 8:22 PM
