◪ race (Red-X Day 2) 1:06:00  *** 8.4 km (7:51 / km) +280m 6:44 / km
spiked:13/18c shoes: Icebugs Spirit 2015
I started really slow, almost felt like middle of the course the day before, was quite confused with map and control placement on #1. it was ~ 1 min or so. Cleaner, but a little sloppy till 5, much better from there, and when the major climb was behind me, I started to feel better and better, even pushed pace on easy legs toward the end. happy with that, but general power in the legs is low, climbing is very weak, will improve as racing continues.
Loved my new glasses: I can read the map again, on the run, just like before glasses and contacts. They did fog up a little when I was standing or moving very slow, it did not bother me much. Shell be fine with cooler temps and lower humidity.
Boris won with 55'.
