Occassional thoughts about orienteering

TranslationYou can read an article about Simone Niggli and Thierry Gueorgiou over at Attackpoint. If you haven't seen it, it is worth a look.
The translation came together very well. In just a bit over a day, a group of four people each translated a small section of the artile. The internet makes coordinating an effort like this very simple. It isn't like the old days when I started orienteering. Back then, getting ahold of any article about orienteering was hard. If it was in Swedish, I'd study it carefully and, with a Swedish-English dictionary in hand, try to figure out what the article was about. I'd be happy if I could understand maybe half of the article.
Eric Buckley is going over ten things he can improve at. One thing he wrote about recently was running in light green forest.
Against runners of roughly my fitness, I get through open woods about as fast as anybody. While I don't particularly care for it, I hold my own going through the really nasty stuff, too. Light green is another matter.
At a couple of Trots, I've run in the woods with Eric and I would agree that running in light green is a relative weakness of his.
As I think back, I wonder if he is also losing time at the transitions from white to light green or from a trail to light green. I'm not sure. I suspect that a lot of people (me included?) lose time at this sort of transition from better runnability to worse runnability. Maybe it is just a desire to avoid going into the green.
Goat cheese and red onion quesadillas
My brother gave me a book for Christmas -- Gourmet Meals in Minutes.
Tonight I took my first stab at a gourmet meal in minutes. I made goat cheese and red onion quesadillas. I'm not much of a cook, but I've got to say I was happy with the result. posted by Michael | 8:17 PM
