I was pretty disappointed with how the long went, even if I fared better than most. A good thing is that the dump mistakes from last year, where I would switch off and end up not knowing where I am in the middle of a leg seem to be gone.

There was a lot of sloppiness on the longer legs in the beginning and I would end up veering off my route and losing time quite frequently. I decided to go straight on the long leg (11-12) because it seemed even between the two routes and I'd been rather poor up until then, so I wanted to do something right. I decided to break up the leg into smaller check points which really gave me more precision throughout the leg and I'm happy how I executed it.

Now that it's a couple days after the race, I'm happier with it and how I managed to avoid any huge blow ups over a longer long, which is an improvement. Apart from the first control, I never didn't know where I generally was on the map. There was still a lot of time loss and room for improvement when it comes to precision on the longer legs.
