GOC Middle Distance. New 1:7'500 map of Hennop's Pride.
I feel slow. Nic cruised past and away from me. Not happy about that.
Technically, the first half felt hectic and I didn't do much planning. I felt a step behind the whole time. Lost maybe 40 sec on #1 because I didn't look at the shape of the ruin on the map. I assumed it was square and inside corner didn't help. Stupid. Small time loss on #6 with another control description problem, but maybe not my fault this time. Then saw Nic at #7. I didn't take the road to #12 and he passed me. Then he ran away on the rest of the course. Ended up 5 min behind. 2 min behind Jeremy.
Ok result but not very happy. Could be running faster, but also I can sharpen things technically a lot.
Now to limit the damage over 10km tomorrow.
