DVOA Tyler State Park - Green

Fun long sprint-ish or middle-ish type course. Unfortunately I didn't feel like there was any run in my legs, although my pace looks decent enough. I had a physical this week and some additional bloodwork (anemia, thyroid, lyme) done to see if there's a cause for this recent fatigue. Waiting on results. Or it could just be that I'm fat and out of shape, but I've been there before and never felt this sluggish.

Lost some time on 1 (of all controls!) trying to find the little trail out of the parking lot before I finally just went around the end. Trails were hard to see or missing, and there were a lot of new things too. This messed me up on the way to 3 also, as I ended up coming out close to 12 and having to go back.

And had a touch of trouble with 6, getting down in the stream bed and then going the wrong way, climbing back out on the other side and then finding it but having to go back through some brush again to get there. I ended up absolutely covered in burrs here, which I spent quite a bit of time picking off after the finish.

Someone had moved 8 away from the cliff and it was up closer to the road and more North, leaning against a tree.

Couldn't even pull up enough energy to fully run across the field to 15 and finish.

SVO Rocky Ridge (Mid-Atlantic Championships) - Green

Ughhh... just tired and out of shape. Zero ability to climb. Even this short course wiped me out. No trouble with any controls, maybe one or two route choices that were not the greatest. Crossed a bit of the powerline cut not on a trail by hopping from rock to rock amongst the thorny crap. Also got into some yucky stuff between 4 and 5. (Worse than the general rocky/laurel/deadfall underfoot here.)

Weather was hotter than I expected, and wore my old school SVO suit which is a bit like being a potato in a foil wrapper.
