Day 10 - Middle Distance and Route Choice

Day 10 consisted of two middle distance training sessions, with the afternoons session focussed on route choice. In the evening we had a lecture from Mats Troeng, who is a Swedish national squad member. He gave us some orienteering technique tips and we went over the courses for the day. He also developed Winsplits and we saw the soon-to-be-released version 4. We used it to analyse our route choices.

The map above shows the morning's middle distance training. Routes: Craig (Red) and Alex's (Blue) routes. Alex, Dylan and Craig all made 17+ min mistakes on number 2.

Nice picture of you all. Sounds like you are getting some serious exercise.
Pity there is such a gap to the next event back home.
Lets see some comments from the girls
