Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Wednesday, June 25, 2003
PlanningAt work today I was reading an article by Barb Hinton (state auditor for Kansas). She began with a quote from Eisenhower:
"In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable."
Hinton was writing about planning performance audits.
At home I was trying to think of something to write when I came across some notes I wrote back in 1991 (when I was orienteering at my best). Here is what my training plan was back then:
Goal for 1992: Boom less than four minutes at 65 percent of the races.
Steps to meet the goal: Train for orienteering. Train effectively. Every week should have one fast session and one hill/running strength session. Every other week should have a run of more than 90 minutes. Concentrate during all O' technique sessions and races. Do regular armchair training.
Evaluate how it is going at the end of May.
Remember: Don't be sloppy with eating and sleeping. Take it easy and concentrate coming in to controls and leaving controls. posted by Michael | 7:50 PM
