First spring relay of the season, i was on first leg for the 3rd team. had a pretty decent run, couldnt get up near the pack early on and wasnt running fast enough for it anyway. lost 40-50seconds in each of the circles at 3 and at 8, but apart from that i just wasnt fast enough, finished 5-6 mins down. was running mostly on my own from 6 onwards with 3 or 4 guys behind and was pretty happy to pull that off without too much trouble. great relay on very nice terrain, the same map as yesterday but using nicer areas.
bad start to the day, had a bit of a daylight savings alarm clock failure. didnt trust my phone to put itself forward automatically. so i put it forward myself last night and turned the auto settings off. long story short, the phone put itself forward twice so i woke up an hour earlyy + the hour for putting the clock forward, (the equivalent of 4.30am). drove into town to pick up some others, no one was in the arranged meeting place when i got there (suprise suprise) waited 10 mins then got on the phone to jules to blow up at him. he pissed himself and told me to go back to bed and try again in an hour. swore a bit, drove home, had a power nap and a coffee and tried again with more success the second time. was a little suspicious when i turned on the car radio and got saturday night deep house instead of breakfast radio.
moral of the story, never trust a windows phone
