but how bad is it? looking at some of the gps tracking, maybe it was worth taking it on at least in small doses?

Yeh not too bad right now. But in a month i think will be different. We'll have to do some green area recon in the training week before WOC!

Lizzie is it more tough runnability green, or low visability green? If that makes sense...

It makes sense...I'm not so sure my answer will though ;)
The answer is both...but different in different areas of the map. In general there's a fair amount of broken trees on the ground that you'll need to get over/around, that can be green stripes on the map (if it's real bad or widespread), or just white forest (if it's localised and hard to map)...
The light green, was mainly runnability. We noticed some areas were hard to tell the difference between white and green, but that's cos it's still spring. There were all these little shoots, about 10cm high, which in a month are going to be 15 x bigger. That will really effect visibility, and make it physically tougher too.
So, I guess we see in a month?
Good news for you is that the middle is less affected by all of the above than the long terrain ;)

(some European is prob going to read this and realise how little I really know ;) )
