Blue, 10.2 km
45F, sunny - Wore bike jacket, got slightly warm
Beautiful runnable woods again. Maybe not quite as nice as yesterday, but still pretty great. Got the control sheet with only 14 controls and knew I was in for some long legs! Normally this would terrify me, but yesterdays long legs actually went pretty well. Kept with the straight line strategy since the woods were so nice. Slightly more climb today so I walked up some hills but kept up a steady jog mostly otherwise. I think this is the best indication of my true abilities for long/classic format - no major blow ups and only 2 errors!! SO i thik im about a 55ish point runner if i can minimize mistakes.
5,6,7 - I didnt feel like I mistaked these, but AP did. Tracks so slight bobbles I suppose
8 - First short leg, I told myself to focus but still ended up over running it and drifting. Luckily i relocated quickly.
12 - SO CLOSE TO THE END. My clean run got in my head, and I saw syd in the woods and got distracted. I must have drifted slightly, and I knew I didnt want to go down the hill, but then I did anyway. Took me a while to find something I could effectively relocate from, but once I did I found it quickly. Stupid mistake, but with otherwise such a clean run I'm not too upset about it.
look at those straight tracks!
