US Nationals Long
Another good day for me (at least mostly)
Started stable and took the time to get into the race. A bit hesitant to 1, a bit too high to 2 and a bit too far left to 3 but all in all probably not more than 45sec.
Could continue with a solid race and decided to invest 0.5-1min to 10 to relax my head a bit before the ending.
Overshot slightly to 11 and unfortunately got a branch directly into the eyes, losing my hard contact lense. Searching a bit but no chance and after some thoughts of ending the race there decided to try to finish it. Lost around 2.5min on 11.
Had to limit the map reading as of the to the absolut minium as I always had to completely stop and not even then could be sure to get a sharp view on the map.
Went too high to 12 (1min), hesitated towards 14 (30sec) and probably lost another 1min until the end adapting the speed to the reduced eye sight.
A bit a pity with the lost 4-5min in the ending but overall still a very enjoyable experience.
