Harbin Park Red 7.3k set by ORunner

A pleasant day for a fun runners' course interspersed with more middlish controls in the woods.
I tried to use New Years Day's analysis to make some different choices. I tried to make decisions a bit more quickly and deliberately but always opted for safe approaches, particularly in the woods. I was particularly happy with my navigation from C11-14 which was preceded by a hyperconscious slow down after passing the building in the NEastern clearing.

Some smaller mistakes were made. I didn't see the gap between 2 and 3 so I ran past 3 to 2 (I didn't even consider plowing through the green bands). I knew what was happening a decided it was faster to keep moving. I unintentionally went further S from C15 in the woods rather than escaping on the first group of SE loops. And I missed C5 needing to jump out to the straight track and coming back at it. The only mistake I would have really liked to avoid was loosing track of the leg to 10; I zoned and started to navigate toward the intervening control 7. This caused me to try to fix the apparent mistake, driving one clearing north. Unfortunately, I could have hit C10 with a snowball when I made the decision so all of the remedy was wasted time. My lost time estimate is 4 min total. Legs felt ok but definitely diminished from the past few weeks of reduced training. It was definitely the climbs where the fruits of my laxness were obvious.

Both Addison and fexbeast had nice runs. I would like to challenge dersu and Addison but it will take still cleaner running, being able to execute a more technically difficult approaches, and getting into better shape.

Maybe I am misremembering but didn't Jimmy McMillan found the Honeysuckle's Too Damn High Party. Maybe it was Rent but if he followed me around today, he would have chosen honeysuckle.

Attackpoint counts my errors as 15 min, and it is right as usual. Overexuberant to 1, overcompensating avoiding the earthworks near 9, and 5, yikes! This was all me but I would dearly like to see another tag line appear on the map further down the contour from the one under the control W edge of the circle because the lines near the canal are seriously confusing, particularly with the 3 parallel contours ending at the western earthbank. Still I should have remembered more about this location and not mucked it up, and my brain may paint in the tag line in the future.

Most importantly, I learned about staying in the open. There were a few legs with some forest running that I made some gains on and I think that my progress, especially on compass like 13-14 through the green, was as good as it has ever been. But the bottom line is honey-SUCK-le does, and it shows in every split of mine where it was green or divert around. So I am momentarily wiser....

Road running 21:54 [3] 2.99 mi (7:19 / mi) +15m 7:13 / mi
shoes: Saucony protread wide

Went to workout at the Y. Website said it closes at 6; piece of paper on the door said 3 and the building was locked. Believing the later to be correct, we went for a jog in our indoor workout clothes + jacket. But it seemed to be brisk, so the jog was actually a run. Beautiful sunset to finish the year.
