Everybody has their own "best route" depending on their abilities. For me it was almost always straight as i had stronger woods speed and strength and better nav skills than most North American orienteers. But ever since my knee injury i've noticed that i need to avoid hills and take trails more innrocky terrain as i've lost the woods running strength.
So saying your route is better very much might be correct. I think it is good to know ones speed for various forest types so one can make the calculations on the fly of what would be better. hmmm sounds like an idea for a spring training camp.
Hey you should run the snowshoe raid next month!
Yeah, that was just me being lazy at the end of the day. It was the best route 1. for having the fastest split, and 2. for being fast running which would make me flyyyyy
I love that idea! I bet I could convince my dad to bring my with him on a trip to Hamilton, what month are you thinking?
