Army event - Alice Holt, Brown, 8.2km, warm day. Stunning weather. Poor effort. 4th. 73:18
Vegetation really dodgy, many places where the map just didn't make sense
Misses at no 3 (2-3 mins) - many lost time here, despite it being "path end". (dodgy vegetation)
4 - too far south - run not runnable; 1 minute?
8 - no idea why i missed it/the path - 1 min
9 - a "bridge" - in circle, simply couldn't locate flag - 2-3 mins?;
Lots of others also found it tough - 2 BOK retirals, plus accidental missing out of controls; Geoff struggled too. I foudn the heat very sapping (complaining in October?) - reduced to a jog / feeling wiped out (kind of ongoing..... not sure if I'm harbouring a low-lying virus). (throat sore later)
To balance it out, I did nail some controls later that others didn't (no 11, 13).
Some of this was luck, some "making my own luck". http://www.baoc.info/sites/default/files/2018/10/1...
