Day 3 of MOC Tour, Sprint in the Old Town of Barcelona.
I decided to try running this time and managed pretty well. Very tricky sprint with lots of artificial obstacles preventing us from running through certain alleys, but never got caught in any of those traps.
Had one annoying mistake on the longest route where I may have lost almost two minutes on the much longer alternative that was the result of turning right instead of left in a crucial intersection.
Stopped on the course to take one picture and lost to Charlie by 13 seconds...

Second day of MOC Tour, Long distance at Montjuic/Olympic Mountain. Really a sprint combined with a forest/park O in very open, runnable terrain.
Walked every step of the first sprint part of the course - 13 controls. Even walking I actually missed one minute on one control since I didn't read the control description and ended up under a bridge instead of on top! Then took the first control of the second half (after a map change) before cutting directly to #10 of the 15 in this part of the course.
Listened to the Womens 4x5km XC relay going to the start + the first few controls!
Forgot to turn off my watch at the finish, so this also includes the way back to the assembly area.

First day of the MOC Tour, Middle Distance at Montserrat/Le Bruc.
With my present ailments I decided to take it easy so I walked the whole course. Despite the slow going I still had problems with both route choice and some of the esrlier controls.
