Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Thursday, December 22, 2005
1162 hours of training!I read about an orienteer who trained 1162 hours in one year. That is a lot of training. Here is the report (in Norwegian) and here is a quick translation of a bit of it:
"He has trained 1162 hours in one year. Of course, he was overtained, but he did it and you've got to respect that," said [Jorgen] Rostrup.
Laaksonen has a lot of good results as a senior and as a junior he was 3rd at the JWOC in the same group as Petter Thoresson and Allan Mogenen.
Laaksonen? Hey, I know him. Petri Laaksonen and I traveled from a race in Sodertalje to the Swedish 5-days in Ostersund. I remember the trip well because our flight got cancelled and I spent the night sleeping on the floor in Stockholm's airport.
You can see Laaksonen's current training log. He's not doing 1000+ hours as an M40, but it doesn't look too shabby.
Make a map in 2006
This seems like a great New Year's Resolution.
I think I'll aim low and resolve to make at least one small map in 2006. posted by Michael | 9:07 PM
