sorry about the inflammation and glad you are bag in the game!
Two questions, please.
- about orienteering rhythm/flow.At competition speed. What is your combination of speed, rate of looking the map, self-confidense etc., that you can say you run in orienteering rhythm?
- What is your breathing rhythm at competition speed? Can you keep it at a higher stride length and rate? For me it's difficult.
Thanks, good luck and success!

Thanks! Wow, challenging questions...

- Usually, a good flow for me is the result from a high map reading frequency, and pro-active navigation. But everything goes more or less together, and it is hard to perform without a good self-confidence as well (i.e. to know you are up to required level).

- The trick is to keep breathing! ; ) I have never put much focus on my breathing rhythm during competition, it comes out naturally I think.
