Flying Pig - Middle Distance at Hueston Woods
Saved my worst performance for the last day (and my birthday). Overran the first control and completely blew the second control, by being distracted when deciding how to leave the trail. Not sure how I wound up where I did, but it was not even close. I only found the control when I decided to bail toward the road and figured out that the steep banks I had been thru were not the even steeper banks that I came across, that were what I saw on the map.
Blowing the second control that badly really takes the wind out of the sails, and the legs were already heavy from yesterday.
The only highlight was that Sergey Velichko popped out onto the road behind me after C12 and I held him off for awhile down the trail, but he gapped me and put a minute on me from there to the finish, even though I was running fairly well, I thought, and only had very small bobbles near a couple of controls.
Running warm up/down 8:00  0.89 mi (9:00 / mi)
Miminal w/up - mostly back from Luke's start and off to my own start.
