Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Tuesday, February 21, 2006
Some questions to ponderI ran easily for an hour tonight. To entertain mnyself, I thought about two questions:
1. If I spent another hour a week preparing for orienteering, what would I do?
2. If I spent an hour less per week preparing for orienteering, what wouldn't I do?
1. I think I'd add three 20 minute strength workouts. In the past I've done a little strength training (typically a mix of things like sit-ups and push-ups). It has always seemed worthwhile. It is also something I could add without having to add any driving or preparation.
2. If I dropped an hour, I'd probably split it up. I usually do two or three short bike rides on a trainer in my basement. Short means 30 minutes. I'd cut back on those and save a half hour or so a week. For the other half hour, I'd reduce the time I spend looking at orienteering maps.
I wonder if I ponder the same questions tomorrow I'll come up with the same answers? posted by Michael | 8:07 PM
