A very hilly course by Dean. I did pretty well today, and was able to keep up the speed for most of the course until I hit the big hill to 13 and that totally killed me. I felt bad first that I was 10 minutes behind Ian, but I think the hilly long run a couple of days ago made me tire sooner, especially for the uphills. I think I should be able to be closer to his time being more rested. Maybe 46-47 minutes would have been possible.
Technically things went well. I am familiar with the park, and that obviously helped but I did a good job today of entering/exiting the controls. Only two mistakes today:
9: I did not notice the earth bank on the map, and I had to climb down it. It was more extensive than the map shows, so I had not choice but carefully climbing down it.
12: Drifting too far east. Mistakingly thought the stonewall was the one to the west, but quickly realized where I was after seeing the houses.
