Elbow Bluffs has a lot denser forest than I remember
S-1 line O: mostly good 2: no knoll there 3: dense veg bad bearing, good relocation 4: good 5: good 6: good, being kinda stupid with where the circle was despite expecting perfectly 7: good, could have been straighter 8: bad exit but corrected quickly, a bit off when coming into the control 9: got a but lost in the green but relocated well but then got confused by the contours, need to get used to 5m contours again 10: good 11: weird veg through me off a bit but recovered well 12: good, lots of dead fall 13: good, wasn't quite sure where it should have been exactly 14: good direction 15: good, could have gone straighter 16: didn't notice that I was supposed to be on a bench and not water level, went away from the hill a bit early because of the small spur when I should have been looking for the a larger one, actual cup depression was very small so wasn't sure if it was it or not 17: bad exiting direction but otherwise not to bad, thought I saw it but was wrong and had to go a little further 18: bad exiting direction, hill was very small so didn't think I was in the right spot 19: good, annoying deadfall in front of the control 20: good, but then got pushed around by veg 21: got sloppy with my bearing towards the end of the leg and thought this was the tiny swap in front of the control, fixed my error and finished the leg 22: good, steep down hill
Overall: need to work on not getting pushed around by veg and getting back on track after going around dense veg, also need to work on contours and having confidence in myself.
Physically: knee feeling mostly fine, need to work on running hills.
