Middle Minds (10 days to WOC!)

Hello there! A few weekends ago team members Cristina, Alex, Giacomo and I met up in Italy for some training races. Try the webroute from the middle, and check out the splits and gps. Running it, there didn't seem to be a lot of route choice decisions, but talking to others afterwards showed that there was some variation. The first control actually presents a nice route choice dilemma - through the slash, or climb on the trail and then drop? Spoiler - I found that going straight through the slash wasn't too bad, and the cliffs and then the open vegetation before on the control was quite obvious. But then it was hard to actually see the flag!

WOC prep for me has been focused on sprinting, but it was nice to get out into the forests while in Italy. Hopefully I'll be running the forest relay, so the hill training will come in handy!
