Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Re-running a courseThe Swedish O' Federation ran a short article the upcoming WOC terrain. If you can manage the Swedish, it is worth a read. Here's a quick translation of a bit that caught my eye.
For Peter Oberg it took a lot of training sessions before he felt he could handle the WOC terrain.
Peter always simplifies the map and terrain, a method that doesn't work in this type of terrain. The first training sessions went well sometimes, but not always, and in each training session he made a 4-5 minute mistake on one or two controls.
"I didn't want to do that at the WOC. So I decided to run lap after lap on the same course until I felt I could handle it."
