Okay so first JWOC race is in the bag. I had a solid 30th finish for my heat and a relatively clean race, with some hesitation and bobbles, but no big mistakes and navigationally sound. Focusing on perfect navigation definitely made it slower, though, because I feel like I could've ran considerably faster. I'm gonna adjust my goal for the rest of this week to include pushing hard when I can (and also reading ahead, which I didn't do today). Overall, not a very technical race. I think now that I've experienced one race and the whole start procedure I'll be better prepared for the others.
