Another night (last night) of terrible sleep. After tossing and turning for a while, I flipped around and put my head at the foot of the bed, so I'd be just a bit farther away from the noisy window. Still with headache and stomach issues today, too. Ugh.
The thickness of the brush for #1 - #5 was kinda unbelievable -- very difficult to move through and see through. I was hunched over swatting branches out of my face most of the time.
After yesterday's disasters, I tried to be extra careful -- but, that plus the thick veg meant I was also extra SLOW.
I found #1 - #4 OK, but got a little lost around #5 (I saw the clearing ahead and thought I had gone too far so I turned back -- in fact I was probably very close). JP found it while I was nearby, so that was helpful...
After #6, the rest of the course was very open and fast and I enjoyed it a lot (much like a park Sprint course). But I was still near the bottom of the Red results. Oh well -- it was still fun overall.
