Very well done - you have come light years in reading complex terrain at speed. What did you do well today, and why?
On the middle, think about how good it feels to be grumpy about 5 minutes (instead of 15, or 30...). You know you can hang, so focus on the skills that help get you there.
One thought on routes - do the sweep. Plan CAR, and then when you've planned your route backwards, before you take off sweep your eyes up the other side and make sure you're not missing anything. So if you've got a plan that takes you right of the line, you sweep the left and vice versa.
AND PLEASE - FOCUS ON WHAT YOU'RE DOING RIGHT!!! ;-)
Eat something tomorrow. It'll help.
Amazing job on the sprint!!!!
Great job on the middle. Little more practice and you will be beating them.
