Some training in the 1993 WOC terrainThe map is from some training I ran last weekend at Surebridge Mountain (the 1993 WOC classic terrain).
For the two longer legs, my training was to plan the leg while stopped, then put away the map and run the leg. I like training that way. You're rewarded for seeing the overall terrain structure, keeping your head up and actively looking for features to lead you to the control. It is also a good way to make use of "model terrain" because it helps you see the big picture.
I don't get to run this sort of training very often because most of the maps I train on are familiar. With familiar terrain this sort of practice doesn't work as well because you can get lazy (i.e. not seeing the terrain structure from the map, but seeing it from familiarity with the area).

and this remains the best terrain/map in the United States despite the recent push for Moreau. Just look at it. Awesome stuff.
Were you on the WOC93 team Spike and if so what did you race?
How did the US perform as opposed to other WOCs? I wasn't very plugged in then.
Zack Greinke to the Jays for some hockey pucks, a catcher prospect who can sit behind Kendall, a Tim Hortons coupon and anything else?
I ran the WOC in 93. I'd have to check the results to draw an overall conclusion, but I don't remember it being especially good or bad for the U.S. I ran the middle qualifier and the relay. My worst WOC.Post a Comment
