West Point a meet
Blue middle at victor constant ski slope
4.3k, 140 m
My head was not really in the game at the start, probably worrying about syds status. Got off my line to 1 and ended up at 3 and then fighting laurel uneccessarily. 2-5 went okay but I wasn’t always executing my plan, jbut was able to correct okay. 6 I made I big error when I tried to wing it and follow a faster blue runner who left me stuck in a mass of laurel. Ended up climbing too high and having to pick my way down a few cliffs. It got better after that, i took my time to stay focused and also because moving fast on the rocky ground or through laurel is really hard for me. Made a really dumb route choice to 13 climbing over a bushy rocky earthbank instead of a nice field, and two juniors followed me! Also hesitated into the finish when I thought I had Missed a punch!
Despite what felt like being slow I ended up with a pretty good time/score. Evidence that slow and steady is a better tactic for me, and that I have improved immensely since last year here
