Occassional thoughts about orienteering

More from DenmarkMarianne Andersen wrote a bit about a recent training camp in WOC-relevant terrain in Denmark.
One of the training sessions was a relay with two person teams -- one woman and one man. The women started with a mass start. The course began with two forked loops. After the women finished the first loop, they tagged off to their team mates but they also kept running. The women then did the second loop (which was forked with the first loop) and then finished with a third, unforked, course. Andersen didn't explain what the men did, but I'd guess they had a similar course (i.e. two forked loops followed by a non-forked loop).
The explanation might seem a bit complicated, but it is pretty easy to make sense of if you look at Andersen's maps.
Some Basketball Notes
The Jayhawks play their first regular season game tomorrow night. They've played two exhibition games and I've watched both of them. I've been tracking the results of each possession. Here is how the Jayhawks offense has done in those first two games:
0 points on 47.9 percent of the possessions
1 point on 4.1 percent of the possessions
2 points on 36.3 percent of the possessions
3 points on 10.3 percent of the possessions
4 points on 1.4 percent of the possessions posted by Michael | 8:25 PM
