Mass start handicapped race at Ansonia. Everyone had a different course with length adjusted so they would finish in about an hour (i.e. a mass start, mass finish race if the handicapper (Boris) got it perfect). Training objective was to experience others in the woods who may or may not be going to the same controls. About 45 people started in the mass start.
Blew one control big time. Reason: distracted by others (grade for training exercise: F). Got off line and mistook a marsh for one 300m away, then spent way too much time getting relocated. Probably lost ~13 minutes. Lost another 2 minutes on another control by switching to another attack point which wasn't as solid as my original planned attack.
Course length was 5.2km, which would have taken about 50 minutes without errors, so maybe a bit shorter than what I should've had. Still a quite good course considering he had to custom design a course for each participant. And Ansonia is such a great place to run.
A day with bright sunshine but quite cold (for Spring) with temperatures in the 30's and a breeze.
