IOF Congress day. Achilles very tight today, although that may have been related to the shoes I was wearing.
Not surprisingly there has been a bit of discussion of long distance event following in the last 24 hours. Looks as if I might have (some of) the responsibility of trying to do something about it - I'll be nominating for the Foot O Commission. Should be interesting; the people I know there are good value, but none of them have experience in international elite competition* in the last 20 years, so hopefully I'll be able to provide something of a fresh perspective on problems like this. For what it's worth, I think if there is going to be a solution it is going to lie in course-setting (the butterflies yesterday were so short as to be largely pointless) rather than the creation of rules which are either unfair or unenforceable in practice.
(* - this is assuming that describing me as an "international elite orienteer" is not in breach of relevant consumer/trade description laws).
There are posters up around town for A-Ha's "farewell tour", although I am reliably informed by the locals that A-Ha have had as many farewell tours as John Farnham.
