I met some friends for lunch at the Legends, and then headed to Wyandotte Lake to re-run a PTOC course from 2016. It was above freezing today and the ice had turned to slush, so footing was better. Woods were just as thick as yesterday.
My goal was to push the pace as if it were a race and try to beat my time from the original run in 2016. I did, by about 4 minutes (which included a bathroom stop).
I tried different routes on 2 to 3 (straight this time instead of on the road and come in from the north) and 11 to 12 (around the dark green this time instead of straight through it). I was faster on 2 to 3 and slower on 11 to 12. This was an interesting leg because there are a lot of new mountain bike trails in the area, including one that goes right to the control. I walked along the trail at this point, trying to mimic the pace if it had still been dark green.
I was much faster today from 5 to 6 to 7. I was pleased that I could keep up the pace on a day after an O race. Or maybe I need to push harder still????
