A beautiful day in the woods and good company, too! Fun to get out and try some of hughmac4's coaching advice to trust myself / have more confidence. Don't know how well it worked. I navigated "okay" and was challenged physically by the climb and the running opportunities near the end of the course.
Took me 3 controls or so to get into the map.
6-7-8 - really fun going downhill / 13-14 whee!
8 was my best control. I saw it from SO far away!
10 to 11 - probably should have gone down to the trail, but wanted the experience of navigating in terrain and didn't feel like climbing back up.
Slogging uphill is where I slow way down. Really fun day, though! And Brian is starting to catch up to me, I better watch out...
