Eoc Long Q (Heat C)
+18:18 off Nykodým (71.07)
+10:50 from qualifying (78.35)
Kind of a meh run. Got 1 well but was sloppy on the sideways slopes to 2 (ended up wayyyyy too low) and 3. Tried to get going then but any time there was a hill (which seemed like most of the time) I just started over heating and just not having a good time.
Some short legs then which I wanted to get cleanly and sorta get going but I was still really hesitant and slow and I started getting annoyed at myself and losing motivation.
Picked up then from 9 onwards, was getting stuff pretty well and I was happy with my route to for the long one to 12. Bit of a bad route to 15 but apart from that solid enough till the end I think. I was still really bad on the hills which was disappointing.
The winning time was 10 minutes longer than expected so I had assumed I'd done really badly from my watch so wasn't really all that motivated at the end. I should really try and stay more positive and keep motivation up even if I think I'm doing bad. I don't think I would have made it but I think low 80s would have been within reach. (83 was the qualifying time on Heat B so you might get lucky)
So I'm a bit disappointed with the race but not too disappointed with the result from the race that I had.
Might put my route in sometime, who knows.
