Kind of received some bad health news on Friday evening that kind of prevented me from running this SA Champs, but still decided to compete.
Made a conscious decision to walk the course today and just focus 100% on nav.
Started off with a 1k leg to the first control, did take it quite easy at first just to get into the new map.
I had stages where i was walking a solid 8min/km pace uphill.
I had a clean run all the way until control #7 where i misread my control number and thought i was at the wrong control (stupid me...) and this mistake lead into control #8 as well where i was drawn to the left by Sarah Pope and had to use my one catch feature to rescue me and put me back on track. All in all it was about a 3 min mistake with both of them together.
From there it continued to be a clean run into the finish. Which was much needed after the crazy temperatures while running.
