Running Drills

The running drills aticle from the endurance coach site is here Running drills or alternatively the old rugby field reps are really underrated by orienteers. I would be really interested in how many of NOS can honestly say they incorporate them regularly in their workouts. Orienteering, prob more than other endurance running needs short bursts of power and speed to move through areas quickly when the navigation allows. We can also use speed and power more as we have greater recovery capacity due to the need to slow down at certain times. I guess O in this regard takes from both typical endurance spots and the more aerobic team sports like hockey. any other thoughts...or links
