Pleased with the vast majority of this; didn't do a lot wrong.
Near-perfect all the way to 20. 21 had the control circle not-cut and so I thought there wasn't a way through when actually there was - but this just meant I thought it was a 50/50 choice.luckily I picked the right way so I didn't lose time (other than extra thinking time) but I'd have been a bit annoyed if I'd have picked the other way.
The one leg which should've been easy,24,(immediately after timed out crossing, so plenty of free planning time) was the one mistake I made, ending up in a dead end.really not sure how I failed to spot this while standing still...lost 25s.
Momentarily confused on 25 and punched an extra control, but something didn't feel right and I checked the code luckily.need to get in the habit of reading ALL the control descs not just the ones that look potentially ambiguous, since they would've prevented the 10s loss here.
But in general really good; not a very difficult course but needed to keep the concentration up throughout; it didn't feel dull at any point. Running-wise, the longer stuff I've been doing is definitely helping as still feeling pretty good by the end.
Just about managed to drive here safely by not putting in any eye drops beforehand and wearing two pairs of sunglasses one atop the other!definitely better than yesterday so hopefully it should just improve from now.
