Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Tuesday, April 20, 2004
Some thoughts about the upcoming WOCEmma Engstrand wrote about the recent Swedish national team training camp.
Check out the sprint training course they ran.
Apparently this map is next to the WOC sprint area. It is probably relevant.
One of the exercises the national team did was to be shadowed by Johan Ivarsson. Here is what Engstrand wrote about that:
Johan Ivarsson will be at our WOC training camps this year. He will help us and give us advice on the technical side. We got the chance to be shadowed and I took advantage of it. I learned a lot. Simplify and take advantage of the distinct terrain formations, was the main advice he gave me.
Ivarsson's advice applies to most orienteering. But, it is probably going to be especially relevant at the WOC, where the terrain is going to be fairly flat with lots of small hills. Check out one of the areas where the Swedish team trained last week. By the way, this is NOT where Ivarsson shadowed Engstrand. posted by Michael | 7:35 PM
