Nice course, nice woods. Felt good moving through woods, but made a few errors, particularly spectacular ones on 6 & 17. Overran 6 to the south ending a few ridges too far and then wound up way off on 17 after erroneously correcting way left when I thought I was in wrong ridge. A bunch of others in and around the circle taking more time than I should have. But a good time in the woods.
Contemplating making the drive to PA next weekend for mid atlantic champs NRE. Will watch the weather and see how I feel

Afternoon walk with El before the dim. Quite a bit of DOMS, but not surprised as I really didnt have protein for quite a while after racing yesterday since I waited until I got to Gardner and went out for dinner with the boy..

Last starter of the weekend, so I guess I didn't achieve my goal of not being DFL. But i'll gladly take this one.
A decent run for the most part, chose mostly clean routes, only minor hesitations in the circle, not terribly fast, especially on uphill legs, but thats a fitness issue. Only major boom was the penultimate control, which I had figured out in advance based on early finishers and control description, but then blew it by turning downhill one ski slope too soon, into woods to find no wall, quick correction, but should have nailed it.
Managed to drop a spot to 5th overall, but only 90s off the podium, so gained 4.5 minutes there.
Quite surprised how well I managed to do this weekend, given recent training.
