Today's LGOC course was in the Lac Fortune map and was actually quite decent by LGOC standards. Everything was in the right spot and the course was fun and the woods were quite open in several sections of the map :)

I felt I ran fairly well though my time was out of the lead by 10 min. The first two thirds of the course were nice and clean, I was moving well and had good route choices. Then I made some sloppy choices later on. To control 10 I chose an ok route (though cut a corner on a trail that I shouldn't have in retrospect as the woods were pretty thick there). Then near the end of the leg the indistinct trail I was planning on following wasn't there at all and I changed my route choice. I shouldn't have. The new route involved sidehilling with no attackpoint and I bobbled the control. Shame on me - I should no better. I bobbled the next two controls in the control circle as well but not by too much.

BTW - is it a problem when I decide that I'll try a direct route but if the woods are too thick I'll bail and take the trail? Shouldn't you be able to tell the thickness of the woods from the map? :P

Running warm up/down (cool down) 9:00 [1]

Cool down jog with Eric - boy did he come back bloody.
