Sunday in Georgia at Don Carter State Park. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Good that I didn't run out of breath on the many and steep hills. Also, when I made mistakes, I could read the map and correct. Control 3 was ugly--I was close to going off the map, too far NW and had to figure out where I was and come back which took quite a while. My mistake here was not planning on a long leg. I need to make a plan on these long legs and execute, instead of just taking off.
The other bad leg was also long, 7 to 8. This time I knew pretty much where I was all the time. I had trouble getting across the stream, and this through me off.
I couldn't find my candy bar, which I planned on eating while waiting to start. This would have been helpful.
Anyway, the weather was good and I felt good. The course was fun, and I even was first in my class, although I know I didn't really deserve it because of mistakes both days.
About halfway through my right knee started feeling unstable and painful. This continued through the next several days, while giving it a good rest. After getting home and checking my Fitbit, I found that I had won the Ferris wheel badge Sunday for climbing the equivalent of a Ferris Wheel, or 75 stories. Pretty funny.
