H55 Middle Distance Ljunga
After arriving at the event really early, I set off to the start with 20 minutes to spare and no idea how far it was. Probably the hardest I ran all day was to make the start box (just).
Decided to go straight at #1 to get into the map, rather than track option, think this worked, got a little cliff bound but OK for #1, #2, lost confidence at #3 and cut back to check another control. Messed up #5 - loads of rock on ground, only 1 boulder on the map.
Decided to run across marsh to #7 which turned out to be OK, but sloowww. Missed #8 a little, but really came undone at #11, paying too much attention to a guy who had passed me and not enough to the map.Maybe 3-4 minutes lost in the dark green.
