Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Look LeftI noticed something while I was running yesterday. Something I've never noticed before.
I see more to my left than to my right. As I was jogging along a trail yesterday, I was looking at the terrain and then comparing it to the O' map I was carrying. At some point it registered that without making any concious effort, I was picking up lots of stuff to my left and not so much to my right. Weird. Or maybe normal, I'm not sure.
When I thought about it, I realized I tend to sit with a computer screen slightly to my left. Same thing with watching TV or a movie.
As far as I can tell, my eyesight is equal in each eye. It is more like being right or left handed, I guess.
I've got a heart rate monitor. But, what would be really cool is to have a thinking rate monitor. It'd be pretty interesting to see how much you think during an O' race. Maybe in a few years I'll be able to buy a TRM.

Maybe one develops better peripheral vision on the left after years of driving? During my morning commute today, I noticed that my left vision was better than my right. If this theory is plausible, than your Brit/Aussie readers can tell us if they have better vision to the right?Post a Comment
