Flying Pig XV - Red Middle
2011 - a new year, same issues. Not ready for running in the woods after a winter of roads and treadmills, so I wasn't as quick as needed (and the lingering cold did not help my aerobic capacity). But I was moving fast enough to almost be competitive in M45. Instead, pulled a bonehead move leaving C9 and lost over 4 minutes. Unacceptable in a Middle, especially on a short, should be all-trails, leg.
Still ended up 6th of 15 in M45 and only 5th was realistic, given the solid competition.
Luke was leading Yellow overall through 7 (of 12 controls), but he did not read the clue for C9 carefully (FOOT of earthbank) and did not see the flag, so spent 16 minutes on that leg. Quite good overall for his A-Meet debut on Yellow.
Running 6:20  0.75 mi (8:27 / mi)
Short w/up, but did also do some dynamic stuff to prepare for the woods running.
