I thought Red was just too long and hilly for my ol' knee, so ran Green instead. It was an okay run. Main goals were picking an attack point, always planning one leg ahead, and execute the plan with confidence. This worked fine until my approach at #4 - I lost the indistinct trail and was slow getting through the thorny vegetation. I should've looked for the knoll S of the control but instead drifted high and overshot a bit to the NE. Figured it out when I spotted the dark green and then larger reentrant just ahead. #5-10 were pretty uneventful. I then executed poorly to #11. The plan was to aim off slightly to the right up the hill, then turn left once I hit the ridge top trail for the pond. I expected to quickly see the pond after the left turn, so when that didn't happen I hesitated. Thinking that maybe I drifted left by mistake, I slowed, ran S (right) down the trail for ~50m before figuring out. I was exactly where I intended to be, and simply didn't run far enough when I turned left. In retrospect, there were other identifying features (like the series of dot knolls surrounding the pond) I should be looking for once on the trail. This would've saved ~40s or so.

I jogged most of the way, except for the 4 climbs uphill, and opened it up a bit on the finish leg. Knee held up fine and didn't bother me afterwards either.
