Many positives but also a couple huge disappointments.
I'm quite happy how I started off, it's quite common to me my worst spot in the race, being slow and unfocused, so I made it one of my goals. It continued to go well up until the 12th control where I mispunched (unknown to me at the time). It was a short 15s leg, leaving an alley, crossing a street, into another alley and hitting the corner of a building. Unfortunately I had the wrong alley.
From my perspective my race continued to go well until the 17th. I'd just seen Mikkel who started in front of me exit the control (16) and exiting the control Id run along some back yards (just green vegetation and some fences) and go into an opening. Pretty straight forward leg just hard to judge the vegetation and well I missed the opening and I spent 90s running around the alleys beyond confused. Finally getting to the control I spent 5s disoriented where I'd come from at the control and from there on it was clean again just missing a bit of intensity that was hard to conjure up after that blow out.
I've also definitely started handling mistakes better, not giving into rash decision making. Not just in this race but I've just realized also in all my latest racesmap
