Sounds like a great training day, way to go!
Is it possible we have more snow in the woods than you do, or are you just immune to it at this point?
Oh, you have a lot more. This was a mix of bare (muddy) ground and ~1" of wet slush. I'm not immune to snow, I have short legs, so I very quickly get stuck. Snow is for gliding over, not running through!
Good work keeping your had up. Keep doing this - eventually you'll figure out how to to do that and read your map at the same time. That's the goal.
Work on memory? If someone grabs your map, you should still, in theory, be able to find the next control. Then head up is easier.
