Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Sorensen's O' techniqueOystein Sorensen wrote a bit about his orienteering technique. I don't have the energy to translate it, but I'll give you an idea of how he ran the leg below. If you can manage the Norwegian, check out what Sorensen wrote.
The leg is from a club training. As you look at the leg, keep in mind that the marshes in this part of Norway aren't easy to run in.
Sorensen's technique is to simplify the leg. The map below shows the main features he's using to simplify. First comes the ride along the hillside, then the edges of the marsh, and finally the low cliff near the control. He's keeping his head up and looking ahead.
The last bit of map shows the speed. Notice that he slows down for the last bit to the control.
