Interval and memory O training at Holcom
I cut up an old Holcom course that Mike had designed, and pasted the snippets on individual papers. I di not bring the intact map with me. I shuffled the order of the controls, and then had to find each one from memory. I carried these pieces of paper:
So, I would start with one map snippet in my hand. I had to determine where the circle was. Then I had to decide the route to get there. Then I put the map snippet away and ran fairly fast to the control. Stop. Breathe. Repeat.
This was more fun than I expected. It wasn't hard to figure out he control location (except for the first one) but it WAS hard to remember where all the fences were and how I could get from one place to the next.
I took one bad route choice from the northern-most ball diamond to the batting cage (on the south side) but otherwise I did OK. I also had to move around all the people in the park; all the open fields were in use.
Hot and sweaty and hard work but loads of fun.
