Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Tuesday, January 30, 2007
Concentration trainingI did some concentration training earlier this evening. Concentration is, of course, very important for orienteering. So, I planned a training where I'd be concentrating more-or-less continuously and would quickly notice when (if!) my concentration lagged.
This type of training fits the "deliberate practice" model, "setting specific goals, obtaining immediate feedback and concentrating as much on technique as on outcome."
I was reading about concentration exercises over on a log on Attackpoint (can't remember exactly which log). That's, in part, what inspired tonight's training.
So, what was tonight's training? The perfect concentration exercise for an orienteer - a night orienteering control picking course.

Good luck with your concentration training. However, I recommend training in the morning. It will help you in the rest of the day. If you practice in the nigh, your body and brain will be tired.Post a Comment
