WC champs long
New map which is always nice. Enjoyed the first 3 controls and then tried to cut a corner of "marsh" on the way to #4, took 1 step and sunk neck deep in what was pretty much sewerage..
Crawled out and found my map completely covered in "mud", dunked it in a puddle to try clear it a bit, not realising it was only paper... So 3 controls in and my map is pretty much disintegrated. Thought about heading back to the start to try get another, but was too far to be worth it. Could still see most of the control circles, albeit it a few rather smudged, and only some of the in between bits were completely gone.
Spent the rest of the course being very cautious+ just using the features I could make out (forced simplification ;) ). Was okay for most of it, just a couple kak legs with very thick green sections I couldn't really see and went straight through. Besides the getting stuck in green, just a bunch of 30ish sec mistakes in the circles.
2 swims, a rubdown in dettol, 3 showers, and 1bath later and I still smell like crap :/..
