If you had one tip for young orienteers, what would it be?

Everyone makes mistakes! When this happens (in a local meet or at Nationals), it’s important to reflect on it and build a plan to correct whatever caused it into your training program. This way, you’ll be able to learn, and have a stronger race next time.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?
When preparing for an important race, I keep it in mind while training for the months/weeks leading up to the event. In the weeks leading up to the event, I’ll intensify my training to make sure I’m in top physical condition. The week of the event, I’ll continue training, but at a level that won’t make me tired or sore for the race on the upcoming weekend. The day of the race, I always have a solid breakfast of oatmeal and fruit, and I always make sure that I read the race bulletin cover to cover.
