Needed a confidence boost before tapawera taper, so did a long run to lane cove, mass start line course, then back to st leonards.
Line course was heaps of fun. Tried to hold on to the top guys while still keeping map control, which worked very well until 11, where i just lost touch, meaning a lot of hesitations along the trail towards 12. I then made my only real error of the course, trying to shortcut the loop to 13 but missing the clearing (it was the wrong choice anyway). Finished a second behind brooner, but mispunched running directly past 7 looking ahead to 8.
Seem to be mispunching and dq-ing a lot lately... not sure i'm learning my lesson?
