You are doing O' training....
I try ;-) Is that allowed for people in their 70's?
You should be telling coach. You are a bit more experienced at being in one's 70s than he is.
Allowed?, encouraged I would say, although I only have about a month of experience in this age bracket.
Ah, good, glad it's encouraged. In that case, gonna try to do some running in terrain at least once a week. We've moved to a new place, twenty minute drive from a decent orienteering map, so trying to take advantage of the opportunity.
A couple of times in the past I recall someone discounting the fact that I'd finished ahead of them in an O-race because I'd trained (though I think they were referring to merely running training). So, wasn't sure of coach was calling me out or lauding me.
