England-Idylwild, Red, 7.1 km

Meet 4, course 6

A very atypical run. I liked Ben and Stephanie's courses -- I went slowly, never continuously more than a jog but tried to not make too many errors. I had 5 min on C13. I don't think I will ever learn to exit the rough open rather than trying to traverse it. Was able to read the map well at this pace and plan rather than react.

Meet 3, course 5

The Large Orange Hedge enjoyed the day once we were moving and warm. There was a cold wind that was a bit distracting and once Aragorn went into the water with his gloves on, he was really cold. I went for a wade later but flanges are harder to heat than legs. The single map per team rule was really not good for us. There were several unforced errors that would not have happened if both of us were navigating, even a tiny bit. Drifted on the corridor-O and had to reset it from the middle. Cranked around the water carrying exercise saving no water but with one of the fastest times. Then squandered it by going to the ghost control before C6 then having to return to C6 from C7 (8 min). The largest problem was with C14 that was set lower on the hillside than the clue stated shallow hilltop. Didn't find it; questioned our location and moved one ridge over only to return to find the bag on the original hill. We weren't the only group that had difficulties with this. A nice morning jaunt; I think we ended up 4th behind 3 USMA teams.

Meet 3, course 4

Better today except for C2. Drifted W and then was trapped in an effective parallel error (two long similar sections of parallel trail). The take away from the weekend is that I need to see more of the map, especially once everything isn't matching up, Wyatt had mention disambiguating two reentrants simultaneously as a solution to the previous day. For me, this is probably aspirational during a race. Simply recognizing that a leg has increasing error with length, so as a run continues looking at a wider sweep is prudent (hopefully using good contact earlier to shorten the length). Most of my errors also lead back to faulty compass work (drift on C4, 5).

I liked this day better and was really enjoying the back and forth with Glen Tryson in the middle of the course. The forest was mostly pretty open and so you could cut loose, picking up your step to avoid the vines.

Keeping going managed to save 3rd on total time.
