Day5. Real varied area on the coast. First day I've really had path routes to choose, some hilly bits, lots of large flat areas of marsh and small vague shapes up against the coast. Much more enjoyable than yesterday and felt like I was competing again, rather than just getting round. Didn't get into the map straight away so slow to the first couple which were short ones, but better to take your time to get into the map than blow it. 10 was a ridiculous control though, shouldn't have been allowed - tiny re-entrant yet much larger re-entrants nearby not on the map, 45s lost. Little mistake at 14 maybe only 20s lost but a bit annoying as I shouldn't be making mistakes like that. Got a bit confused to 16 coming up the slope from the marsh and didn't go the way I intended, splitsbrowser says 42s lost but difficult to say as uphill always shows time loss. 23 should've gone out to the beach as it was horrible in the wood, but this is hindsight I think everybody was in the same boat there. Happy to be back to 11th on the day, but dropped overall again as others replace bad scores.
