Ah well, the best laid plans don't always work out. Actually, I did fairly well for 10 of my 11 controls.
But everything fell apart on control 10. I did the opposite of everything I had planned. I was supposed to stop, count to 10 and look at my map if: I saw Mike, the terrain wasn't what I expected or I had just climbed a big hill. I totally ignored all of those.
I did remember those rules earlier in the course, just not when I needed them most. Note to self: you are not in shape and you will get tired, even on a 3K course. Your brain will stop functioning. Bring energy drinks and take a break.
I was so disappointed in myself today.
