shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 212
NOL middle at The Old Pelaw Main Colliery. Decent run but made one large error at 11. Actually nailed the control but thought mine was near a building instead of what I saw as a man made feature that was further down the hill. Didn't bother checking number and continued on into some thick green. Then did a poor relocation, into more green until I finally relocated well and entered the control fuming, right next to the Derrick ( what I thought was a man made feature). Pretty annoying as I should have judged distance and checked the control. On a positive note the rest of the course was pretty much mistake free but slower after my stupid mistake. Only small errors at 9, 13, 20, 24 (went back to check number) and a bit of lost time at
19 where I walked into the control to avoid mistake.
