Set out at a nice jog again. Was a little sloppy to the first 3 controls, but not too terrible. My hands were completely numb until about control 5. Pretty happy wiht my run overall with 2 bigger errors.
7- I drifted way too far left, and also lost count of the ditches I had crossed. Ended up stopping 1 ditch too early, spent way to long figuring out which ditch i was at, and then instead of going to a known location on it I just took off in the right general direction to 7. Since I had drifted so far i missed it by a lot and got to the park boundary before turning around. I still didnt really know where I was, but I got lucky hitting the control on my way back. Im guessing 8 min lost.
11 - Decided it was time to eat a gu as i trudged up the hill. Drifted right again, but the lake served as a pretty good catching feature and then hand rail to get back on track. Looks like a longer error than it was because i wasnt moving fast to eat (and slightly winded at this point).
