Silva League Middle Distance.
A much better race today. Because today wasn't a WRE and because my performance wasn't that great yesterday, I ran in Elite2. I had a very good race for me, although still some things to iron out, especially in controls 4, 5 and 6. I let the vegetation push me around on the way to 4, although I realized where I was when I came out to a different hill than expected. On the way to 5 I meant to run on the left side of the swamp, but again got pushed by the vegetation and ended up running through the swamp. This was fine except that I didn't know where in the swamp I was, so when I came out the other side I was unsure. Decided I was too far right and was luckily correct. Again on 6 I didn't have a good plan and just wandered into the control after pace counting on a rough compass. Not the best strategy.
After that, though, it got better. Still a bit of a unsure on other controls (10 and 11), but I don't think that I really lost any time. I was really pushing physically at the end and enjoyed the race. Finishing 5th means (I think) that I get a spot in Elite at the next Silva League race. This Friday is a sprint, but it's also WRE, which I think means I would be in Elite anyway.
