“If only I had” ... was the theme of today. I was a little off on #1 since I didn’t really pick a good attackpoint, but recovered quickly. Then it was smooth and fast sailing all the way until 11 which was a short leg and I just turned my brain off and didn’t check my compass. Relocated and refocused and got back on track until I made a nice big 90 degree turn about 2/3 of the way to 12. I found a fence and if I gone another 2m I would have seen some ruins and known exactly where I was. Instead I made about an 8-10min error, which cost me a crap ton of places and possibly a top 15 finish. My anger led me to make up some time in the last loop.

Shoulda, coulda, woulda. That big error sucked but I’m so happy with the my performance in the whole rest of the course.

Things I learned: check compass always.
Plan plan plan even if it’s such a short leg.
Don’t let your mind wander off when the Nav feels easy.
