Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Pre-logging trainingMary logged 10 minutes of physical therapy exercises tonight before she actually did the exercise. That seemed wrong to me. I don't think I'd ever log training that I hadn't yet done. It just seems wrong to log training and then do it.
Mary pointed out that logging your training first might force you to do what you planned.
I wonder - how many people log training that they either haven't yet done or never actually do? I wonder - how many people do more training than they log?
Another old map
Aspleaf posted some more old O' maps. This one is from 1966. Maybe someone who (a) lives in Uppsala and (b) reads this blog will go out an run with this map...

"Someone who lives in Uppsala and reads this blog", huh? :)
Well, I have enough trouble in Nåsten on a 1:15 that I think I'll pass on the 1:25 version for now. The first leg of that course goes right through the middle of the huge horse-riding center they built a few years ago.
1) That waterfall was in one season of the Amazing Race.
2) I've logged early on a few occasions, usually before an evening of volleyball, when I know that it'll last for two hours.
The "stabby" river. Cool.
Here's Skogafoss 2 months earlier:
We hiked up to the top of the falls but didn't go further along the trail.
After Skogafoss we went to Skogasafn (the very impressive museum of buildings and stuff about 1 km east of Skogafoss).
Where is the "skog" that these places were named after? Did you see any forest? Or is it more like the "ice" of Iceland and the "green" of Greenland, which the Danes(?) named after what isn't there?
Unfortunately I missed the museum because I wasn't sure I'd have enough time to walk over there from the falls, see the museum and walk back to catch the (only) bus to Reykjavik that afternoon. As it turns out the bus stop is actually *at* the museum, not the falls, but fortunately the bus did make a stop at the falls and a bunch of nervous backpakcers all piled in, bought tickets and got to the city.Post a Comment
