Victorian State Series 7
2nd on Course 1
2.5 mins behind Andrew Barnett
Generally pretty clean. Just a lack of concentration turning one track junction too early mid way along the leg to 11. It was getting pretty wet and cold at that stage and it had just rained heavily for the last 5 minutes. I was reading ahead and noticed that my compass was pointing the wrong way, so I double checked and fixed my error. Probably 90 seconds lost here - 30 seconds out and back, and another 30 for a non optimal route as a result.
Otherwise I just started to struggle to with strength in the terrain in the last 30 minutes. The terrain was quite rocky and slippery, and hard to attack at full speed. My legs were tiring. It was very hilly, but I coped ok with the climbs - just not too fast on them.
