Event (Easter Day 1) 38:17  ***
Didn't go flat out as I knew it was dangerous to lose map contact. Pleased with 1-4 and momentarily relaxed, made a rough decision to 5 and made ground fit map. Lost at least 5 mins on leg to 5 which was very costly after checking splits tonight. Never mind could have been much worse. Foot a bit sore now but not bothering me much in event.Trying to stretch it but know I'm probably losing the battle.
Best run in mining ever so quite pleased - just enough to keep you honest but not overwhelming on my course. Tomorrow is another day - as always on tender hooks in a multiday event.
Congratulations to all involved today - an excellent event, though I know you had your problems. Course just right! Lots to allow us to feel like we've achieved a just result.
Edit: placing 7th after today. Sort of disappointed given just 1 mistake and it didn't seem that big. Looks like there are some speedy clever people playing here. Perhaps a strategy could be to pull up to 5th tomorrow (up 2 places) and then repeat the dose on Day 3 to snaffle 3rd. Tomorrow is another day.
