Interesting training courseI came across this training course on Albin Ridefelt's blog.
As best I can tell, here is how it works. Ridefelt started at the triangle and ran hard to the first control and then back to the trail. At the trail, he tagged off to another runner who took the second control, then ran back to the trail and tagged off to Ridefelt. Ridefelt took the controls east of the trail as they worked their way to the south end of the course, then he took the controls west of the trail on the way back.
The whole course took Ridefelt 35 minutes. From his h.r. curve, it looks like it was a good, tough workout.
Ridefelt called this workout - Czech Relay Training.
It looks like a fun way to make good use of a small area.
It is also very cool that people post their maps with QuickRoute tracks. If you have QuickRoute on your computer, you can download the jpeg of the map, open it in QR, and really see what was going on.
