We knew going in this was going to be a sweat fest with temps in the upper 80s and humid (dew point "feels like" temperature in the low 90s), and it was. Left hamstring achy and tight still from Sunday's Rogaine where I aggravated an old injury.
The control I had the most trouble on was number 5, as I cut into the semi-open area and confused the wider section with mapped path (heading NW toward 6) with the narrower clearing pointing more northerly that I should have been in. I should have just stayed along the parking area longer. I stumbled across #41 first (I was looking for 40), which is the code for the NEXT control, so I recovered from there, somewhat, though I again apparently didn't find the proper trail at first.
On the long leg to 10 I chose to head up to the road rather than take the trail that entered the woods near the pavilion. While execution was fine, it seems I added more climb as I have more total climb on this course than Glen had, where we had similar total climb on the other sprint. My reasoning was that 9-10 left looked like up 2 contours down 1, versus down 1 up 2, or so I thought. There's a squiggly form line I think I was seeing as a contour line but 9-10 right was apparently down 1 up 1 contour.
Nice courses by Greg Ahlswede, set by Sandy (who also updated the map with disc golf tees and holes, quite the job).

Now that I was used to the maze of trails wth the large barn in the center I did much better. :-)
Back to yoga...needed it today as well as a bit extra that I did on my own. Since instructor Deanna was back from vacation she called this one "returning to balance from travel" as we focused on breathing techniques.
I added a bit more detail to the Rogaine description with order of controls and some route choice notes, if anyone's up to more details (easier to follow if you have the maps). :-)
