Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Friday, November 07, 2008
An obvious observation.An obvious observation...If you look at how people train in the two weeks before a big race, you can fit them into one of three patterns:
I measure the quality of the week using my scoring system, then compare the two weeks. So, a High/Low means that the first week had substantially more points than the second week before the big race. Basically, you get a lot of points if you run orienteering races and/or do a lot of training.
So far, I've looked at 4 logs of people who ran this year's WOC. I wasn't sure what I'd see, but I guess I expected the High/Low pattern to be most common. High/Low would happen, for example, if you trained (or raced) a bit two weeks before the WOC, then used the week before the WOC to take it pretty easy. Of the 4 I've looked at, only 1 fit the High/Low pattern. 2 fit the Even pattern. 1 fit the Low/High pattern.
