dredman: signed up.
Harvey Krumpet: neck wasn't really bothering me at all to be honest. Maybe double check your body position in the turn. I found that leaning in with the chest to the mirror, gets rid of twisted up posture, something like this.
and gets me more like this:
With this its easier to twist your head backwards to search for the next cone.
Elessar: will measure it up next time I'm out. I dont' think it needs to be anything precise, unless you want to compare time with others running same patters. Whatever works for you and your skill level. Plus this pattern can be improved quite a bit as it doesn't have many fast bends, mostly just technical, twisting stuff. But yea, I'll measure it up next time.
