Maybe that knock on the head did some good.
So I guess every time my game goes bad on me I just have Gail get out her 4-iron and let me have it? I think I might be quitting the sport pretty quick....
Those who have followed Peter's remarkable orienteering career should see the value of his training regimen. Clearly, if one wants to improve at orienteering, one should play much more golf.
Under that theory, I'd suggest following the O' career of DVOA's Eric Pevoto (EricP on AttackPoint). He's a real life honest to goodness pro (in golf that is) -- check his e-mail address! Success in orienteering is sure to come.
To quote an orienteering hero of mine:
"Golf and orienteering are the same sport."
Ah, so there is a direct correlation. That's a problem. Ask just about any golf professional, they'll tell you they play much less golf than you'd think. Much less than before they got into the business side of things. So, to have any success with orienteering I may have to change careers!
Spike: Though my experience with orienteering is pretty limited, I agree with your hero. I see many interesting similarities.
