Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Wednesday, September 08, 2004
One of my favorite placesJohan Nasman has been doing some of his last WOC training at one of my favorite places for orienteering.
Check out Nasman's middle distance practice course at Karsta.
Here is what Nasman wrote:
Tuesday was WOC training at Karsta, north of Stockholm. A technical course that is similar to the WOC middle distance terrain. Perfect WOC training with streamers marking the control and a prepared course. Technically it went well. Positive for me is that my technique is going well and my running form has been getting better the last few weeks. Tomorrow will be sprint WOC training at Rosjon with Fredrick Lowegren as the course setter and control hanger. I'm looking forward to it.
As I said, Karsta is one of my favorite places. You don't get much route choice, but it is so much fun to run in this sort of terrain, reading the map and running right at the edge of your ability to keep contact.
My main memory of Karsta is a night O' training in the snow. Looking back at the terrain (and considering how little night O' experience I had at the time) I'm surprised I was able to find all the controls.
