You did really well! Just enjoy being near the front and in control, you'll start beating him eventually
Oh I am pleased! (very). Just increasingly baffled that however "hard" I start, I'm always off the pace early on - don't know what everyone else is doing!
Guess I'm slow to get going.
you slaughtered everyone on 9 to 10!!!
I know. I knew it would be easy to the attackpoint (tree on ride), & I ran v hard thru the woods to the open, where again I really pushed it. I did not allow myself to be distracted by the control on the pond as Clive & Martin did.
Some people just start too fast and then fade quickly...
Well, that's no fun, is it? (fading)
Better to feel like you're pushing on & getting faster. Getting the "flow" as the course progresses is one of the joys of O for me.
