DIY Billygoat (aka the Covid Goat) at Mountain Lakes Park. 10.7km, 400m with skipping one control allowed. Mass start, but Janet and I were the only ones there and she started about two minutes ahead of me. Great weather (70F, partly sunny, low humidity), great terrain and map, and great course by Niels LO (Thanks!). Actual o-flags but no punching. Skipped control 5.
Off to a sloppy start navigationally, overshooting 1 by a lot and 2 by a little (used the 1:7500 version of the map). Came in one level too high to 4 plus didn’t execute the route well. Pretty clean the rest of the way except for a little overshoot at 14. AP says I lost time at 16 - I hit the control fine but added distance by staying on the road for too long. About 7 minutes lost total. In an actual Billygoat mass start, the errors at 1 and 2 likely wouldn’t have happened since there would’ve been lots of other people around. Only 39 seconds behind Clint, but he didn’t skip a control.
Sore afterwards in the usual places but no cramping.
