Good run out in a bit of scrappier stuff than yesterday, a few dodgy sections to 5, 6 and 8, but compass work very good in the second half of the course. Cut off the last bit, taking a rest day and skipping the night-o tonight. A bit of confusion to 3 when I was reading the rest of the course and the path didn't have an obvious feature to bring me out of it.

Quite happy with how that's gone, worst legs were 23 and 24, 23 there were a lot of fat-ass trees to wiggle around, and 24 strayed to the left of the long hill when I wanted to be to the right of it, realized pretty much immediately and climbed over it so good correction there. A bit stop-startey in places, and was mentally on a different hill to 1 and completely relocated just over 1/3 through the leg, fine from there. Did well with visualizations but vocalized out loud my thought process a few times, want to internalize thoughts much more but for now it was useful for focus and planning.

Started the course into known territory but quickly started feeling different getting closer to 1. Good nav, taken comfortably until about 9, then with Nixon passing by pushed to comfortably fast, taking different routes or microroutes, then out of sight in the pinball section and on the last long leg, did well at the upped pace which was the goal. Want to take one of the next sections faster, feel like I'm learning the terrain quite well and want to work on reading quicker. Mistakes on 6 and 7 were mentally quite a bad section, but settled back into it quickly.

Bit of a grim training, took a long time for a middle. Did navigationally actually quite well through the green, stayed on the compass and ticked off features. Went for the route choice on 7, I think it's good but had a wobble trying to find the path. I didn't read the open around 8 well either, but then 9 and 10 went well again. Parallel error on 11, spent some time on the wrong spur, didn't even notice until I loaded up the GPS. Should have noticed the track, and I'm surprised I ran along the road as long as I did, seems to have left my brain completely. Rest of it was fine, 14 and 15 felt a little bit rude.
Felt horrible afterwards, took a lie down in the seat while the others were eating in the back. Had some semblance of energy back for the next training. Might be illness related but right now I'm not too concerned.

Nav for most of it was ace. 2 wasn't quite my plan but started trending up the hill with my compass and thought it wasn't that bad so carried on straight instead of more around as planned. Also was miscounting streams a tad but it didn't matter that much. Bobbles on 10 and 11 being in the area and being unable to see the tapes, then no tapes on 12, but was fine, am happy with that. Sleep will be nice.

No GPS, but no what went down. Getting into the terrain this morning, focusing on positive features. Negative bits were more runnable but seemed to have more confusing contours so good that. A few bits of lost contact, i.e. into 10, but depression by a big hill is pretty hittable. Only bad control was 16, parallel error. Thought I was going up that reentrant in between the two hills on the line, was looking compass but didn't notice it was off, spent a bit of time on the two knolls and the long strip of yellow unable to figure it out so relocated towards the buildings and tried again. Annoying, but everything else went well and felt pretty focused.
