Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Thursday, October 11, 2007
Ivarsson quoteDare to stand still in the forest. Use the tactic that Kent Olsson and I use: stop as soon as you are unsure. You have to learn to orienteer at the speed you compete at. Set your speed based on the orienteering and not the other way around....
When I'm standing on the starting line, regardless of how my training has been going or if I've been injured, I think, "do my best." The past is forgotten.
I wasn't inspired to write tonight, so I just did a rough translation of a bit of an interview with Johan Ivarsson in the book "Traning."
Iceland snapshot of the day
I took this snapshot along the main highway a bit west of Skaftefell.

HI Spike,Post a Comment
Can you please stop posting these pictures (kidding!) They are making me jealous and miss Iceland. The pictures are great compositionally, etc... I just wish I had had a chance to spend more time there and take more pictures. It is a very beautiful (if dark and damp) place.
