Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Friday, September 15, 2006
On your marks....get set....I'm on my way to the sprint series finals.
Without making any particular effort to prepare, I've actually done a couple of things that give me some confidence. I've been working with Gene to fieldcheck a sprint map. I've done a couple of tests using the half-completed map to help me make decisions about the map. So,without intending to, I've did some sprint training in and spent some time thinking about sprints.
I ran some intervals (so-called "old man intervals") yesterday and was moving faster than expected. It didn't exactly feel good, but it gives you a bit of confidence to run a bit better than expected.
On the other hand, I haven't done any intentional preparations (the stuff I'd usually do to get myself ready for a specific event). But, maybe that won't matter so much. We shall see.
Updates in coming days
Updates will be irregular over the next couple of days. I might phone in a couple of audio updates over the next couple of days. posted by Michael | 12:37 PM
