Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Friday, December 16, 2005
Wish I could read FinnishLooking at Janne Weckman's blog makes me wish I understood Finnish. Even if you don't read Finnish, take a look at the maps. I'm intrigued by the analysis of individual legs, like this one.
As far as I can tell, Finnish is essentially impossible to understand. You get sentences like this:
Joukkue kai pysyy suunnilleen samassa koostumuksessa.
I've travelled in Finland a few times and always enjoyed it. The orienteering is great. The country is beautiful. The people have always been helpful.
Some of my favorite orienteering memories are from training camps. So, I'm psyched that things are working out so that I'll be in Hamilton for a training camp in January (I bet there aren't a lot of people who can say, "I'm really looking forward to going to Hamilton, Ontario, in January."
The camp schedule looks great. Lots of training and lots of good information. One of the presentations is a brainstorming session about how to further elite orienteering in Canada. That's exactly the sort of topic I like to think about...I'll have to give it some thought over the next few days or weeks. posted by Michael | 7:26 PM
