Python Goat, Peninsula, OH (10.6k)
Meet 19, course 29

A fun run on some new terrain. I liked the map; Bob has done a good job getting it redone. The open/rough-open could be adjusted. Although the unmowed fields would be very fast in the winter, they are still distinct as ungroomed. Today, the long grasses and wildflowers took a lot out of my legs and made them a way below 80% speed adventure.

Overall, with still getting over hip issues, slack running weeks, and a cold, I thought the run went not too badly (and I would have rather been doing little else with my Saturday). I made three significant errors: (1) over running 6 even though spidey sense said go in at my first pause (3.75 min); (2) off the map to 13 (4 min; this was bad because the trail and stream crossings almost look like the correct trail); and (3) drifting 250 m W to the wrong creek at 14 (9 min). There were lots of pauses (30s misses on 5 and 9), small route choice issues (like to 1), and I was slower by being overly conservative on trail or woods choices; the latter just seemed to be the right thing to do today. On the plus side, I mostly had my head up, I thought through my mistakes clearly, and seemed to remember how to navigate given the low number of maps I have seen since Idaho. A good start to the 2015-16 preseason if I can keep my legs healthy.

Aragorn had a fine race which made me smile.

Two skips but needing to go to all of the odd controls was an interesting experiment but one I didn't think worked. Nearly all of the possible skips were equal as the terrain was relatively flat for a goat and there were few sections of heavy green. Skipping consecutive points would have allowed runners not only to separate but also to gain some benefit from a good choice.

shoes: Saucony Guide 8

It was hot and I apparently didn't drink hardly anything during the day. Consequently, this was pretty rough by the end. Next time, I will try using a bit of forethought. Did see a goldfinch which brightened my spirits.
