Race Evaluation

WCOC A Meet and Intercollegiates: Red Day 1

cmorse

1. Lot of green ahead on trail, turned map over, saw I was going uphill anyway and cut immediately through break in green at triangle and traversed uphill - straight on line
2. +00:20straight to trail, then around light green, but got went a little low and got bogged down in green near fence artifact.
3. straight and clean
4. ditto
5. Bad route choice
Lacked concentration
Hesitated
+02:00
took trail, cutting corners, stopped to tie shoe when crossing stream (30sec) and then looked up and saw bag, but it looked like it was on a substantial knoll, got confused, went north a little, then realized things and went back to bag. Now raining pretty decently, glasses fogging
6. Frustrated
+00:15
trail around hill, then up and over white woods and down - a little slower/careful after almost messing up #5.
7. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Could not relocate
Not thinking clearly
Lacked concentration
Lacked confidence
+06:30
BOOM - can't see map/terrain, try to cut across stream/green early on, somehow wind up heading uphill to NE, nothing matching up, eventually drifting south and matching a few things (what I could see). This blew the whole thing for me - very frustrated
8. somehow this one was clean - across trail by j cliff, north end of green and straight on in. Slow up hill, but otherwise ok
9. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Could not relocate
Not thinking clearly
Frustrated
+04:00
BOOM2 - couldn't read map well, somehow convinced myself I was looking for a boulder in an E facing reentrant, not a w facing spur. wound up by fence corner due N of #1. Really sucked since I had only run through here20 minutes ago but now that I'm blind, I couldn't see that. Damn...
10. switch to bearing/pace count (should have done this back around #6 when vision went) Clean, realized I had actually visited this bag while wandering on #7. Slow jog at this point, not a real run - but clean navigation.
11. to trail, then cut in once clear of rocky crap, very clean - but like the remainder of the run - slow jog at best...
12. pretty much straigt on the line - didn't even opt to trail.
13. +00:20fence to trail, then down trail - couldn't read map really clearly, wound up below the rocky crap and had to climb back up to cliff - had read clue as lower, so went to the bottom of the black.
14. trails
F. up over hill on line.

Total Time Lost - 00:13:25
