Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Rostrup interview in Norwegian newspaperA few (roughly translated) quotes from an interview with Jorgen Rostrup. If you can read Norwegian, the original article is worth a look.
"I've run my last WOC," says Rostrup.
"I feel burned out from WOCs. I've run every WOC since I was 16 [including JWOCs], and since I've been 18 it has been the main thing in my live. I know what it involves to aim for a championship and it isn't something that is as exciting anymore."
"I'm going to stay at a high level for at least two more years. For example, I want to win Tio Mila and the 5-Days in Sweden. I've developed a good 'machine' and it won't fall apart over night. I will keep training about 600 hours a year," said the runner from Kristiansand who at his most was training up to 900 hours a year.
