Okay, I'm just going to make a quick post like this to as a poll or something rather-kindof-sortof... to the point. Ever since I was a little Newbie, I spent most of my time checking out new buildings/roof tops and seeing what I could do. I'll spend most of my time in a car/on a bus looking at buildings and formulating escape plans/ building paths I could take to get from destination from destination. Kind of like the red Runner Vision
in Mirror's Edge. I just see things plain and simple at first, and moments later the things I can climb and use to get higher just pop out and become more clear than everything else.
IRL Situation: I was out at the
pet store when I was looking at these huge shelves in the back of the store, next to the storage/maintenance areas. These large shelves held vast amounts of dog houses, 'dogloos,' pet food, etc. And rather than shopping as I was supposed to, I actually ended up spending maybe 5-10 minutes just looking at ways to vault these things, climb shelves, swinging on the burline rafters, and so on.
I just now
remembered that I posted this as a thingie for other traceurs to respond to. Do you ever find yourself using this so called Runner Vision
to train/ find routes for running? Please let me know, just want to use this to learn about how other people see things while training.
