Felt very bad physically today, no power going up hills and not recovering fast on the flats. Probably a combination of 1) not eating lunch before the race 2) not having done any running this week and 3) some poor nights sleep recently. Good lesson learnt.
Came a little unstuck at 9 although I was in the circle, but went back and forward through a few little reentrants before finding the control. Then took a risk on passing through a narrow bit of dark green to get to 13. Didn't pay off, had to abandon it and then didn't refocus on the new choice well. Another good lesson. Finally came across someone injured and helped them back to the finish before carrying on.
