Running 24:38 [4] 2.08 mi (11:49 / mi) +320m 8:00 / mi

Trail run uphill at race pace. Uhhhhhh.... it was pretty darn hard, and I definitely wasn't crying at the end.

Running 27:11 [2] 2.66 mi (10:13 / mi) +10m 10:06 / mi

Cool down jog back down the hill, interestingly enough it took me about the same time to get back to the start as it did to get up the darn thing.

O course intended to be taken out on race pace. Overall I am pretty happy with how I did on this course, physically I was still sore before the run but was still able to keep moving at a reasonably fast pace. I mostly would slow down and lose time in the circle of the controls as the exact spur, or exact re-entrant would be vague at times to me.

For 1 I was going around some fallen trees and curved into the spur from below. At 2 I knew I was in the general area of the control, but was not sure where the exact spur was. Since I thought I was close enough I decided to keep going.

My biggest problem came at control 8 and 9. Even though I did hit 8 right away, there were a lot of pine trees in the area that made it very hard to see how the contours actually looked. It did not seem to me that I was in a re-entrant so I thought that I was up to high on the hill. I dropped a little, and found something that resembled a re-entrant and thought I was at 8 there. This resulted in me undershooting 9. Once I climber up the hill to 10 I was confused to as where I was because once again, there was a tone of pine trees in the area and I could not tell if I was on the highest point of the hill or not (left or right of 10). I followed the spur for a bit and once I saw the river I knew where I was in general and attacked from there.

Despite rolling my ankle at control 7, it was a fun and fast course!

So...I found this training pretty difficult on a technical level. I was pretty confused where I was for the majority ot this course, yikes.

For the first control, in the beginning I went around a good chunk of green and thorns which left me not completely sure where I was. I relocated after crossing the first stream, but afterwards got thrown off by the contours in the area and ended up following down the wrong spur. For a map like this and with this exercise, it would have been safer to keep going East until I could see the marsh, which would have kept me not crossing the maze and would also let me have a good approach into the control.

Since I thought I was at 1, my plan was to go south around the two marshes and hit 2 from the west side. But upon exiting I didn't see the marshes. This left me pretty confused and I decided to relocate. Once I hit a marsh I decided to "cheat" and go through it and the maze to make sure I knew where I was. On the bright side I did hit two, but the mistake stemmed from the mistake made at control 1.

For 3 I had a good start, but got thrown off my the amount of boulders in the area. When I saw the field, I decided to reset there and continue to 4. For 3 I think I should have lowered myself since the control was quite far down, and it would have been easier to see the contour details from below.

4 I hit nicely, 5 not so much. Honestly, I think I just compassed wrong here. Also probably got pulled down by the hill too much.

The stream in between 5 and 6 was huge and freezing, I kept following and eventually found a fallen tree that crossed over. Didn't fall in which is nice. But I figured I should go to 7 from here. 7 and 8 I thought were fine, but by this point I had about 20 min to get back to the car. So I went back to the nice tree bridge and trecked westward. Halfway through got my leg submerged to the knee in cold water so that was nice...

Honestly the course beat me up today good, but I want to pay it back someday.
