SOL at Anagach
Another fantastic area for O.
Again, deliberately trying to keep the legs slowed to give the brain a chance. Overall improvement on the errors front compared to yesterday.
Wee wobbles in the circle on 2 and 3. In fact went for the 'navigation' option over the track option in a few cases where i would not have otherwise. i.e. treating race as training
Swung to the right off my bearing yet again (twice yesterday) on 12 but realised when i hit open / wet my feet.
Lost map contact and ran too far on 14 (tried to go round the marsh that others seem to have been able to just leg-it accross) but again relocated to 'full sure' attack second time around.
Kite and t-bar almost invisible cos' they were lying flat on the ground at 15 (which i put upright again) Considering 14, it was a good thing i was 1000% sure i was in the right spot.
Mental tiredness near the end had me in the circle for no 6 before registering '6' vs '18' that i was actually after. ALways new exactly where i was, just the numptyness factor kicking in.
Switched the legs on for the last leg, and suspect i might have got my first 'fastest' leg in ages (yeah yeah, easy leg, others tired etc i know)
Interestingly: closer time-wise to the winner today than yesterday by more than a minute.
