Sounds like you will make 2017 a good year :)
We may see you sometime in Europe
Good plan Larry!
Hope to see you for 10mila :) team needs you if you're up for it!
Seems like a sensible approach. Long-term injuries aren't easy things to deal with even under ideal circumstances and being a long way from home doesn't make them any easier. Hopefully this time next year 2016 will be just a bad memory.
(Actually, you're probably not the only person in the world who would like to see 2016 permanently expunged from the historical record).
I also think that there are heaps of orienteers my age who seem to be struggling with ongoing injuries at the moment (Thor, Milos, Ida, Yannick who's a bit older, to name some). I think if I don't do something about how I train I'm going to end up in a cycle of injuries. I'm not saying I shouldn't train hard, only that I should train hard when the time is right.
