My first memory of feeling what orienteering could be like was a run where I was following instructions to stop after punching, take a few stationary seconds to look at the next leg - and then run. I was so much more confident and direct - it really helped to be not dithering/searching for info that a long 5-10s look gave me more than adequately. It was at Evedon - and I can even remember some of the legs?!?!?
So hard to do that on a sprint though where every second makes a difference.
