JEC Long W18 - 6km, 28/38
Another disastrous long.
Had already lost over a minute at 3 which actually ended up being quite a small mistake compared to #5. Don't know why I didn't just hit the track but decided to go straight. Got caught in some pretty bad windblow whilst cutting under the crags. Think thats why I got completely disorientated. Was just trying to get to the other side of it without having to turn back on myself which would have been the sensible thing to do. Instead I panicked and just kept going for 5 mins before deciding the end definitely wasn't in sight. The only way out was the way I had come in.
I think I wasn't expecting windblow to be mapped as green and didn't notice the little dots but still should have realised I was going in completely the wrong direction.
The phi loop went okay but had lost concentration by the last loop after spectator. Another big mistake to #18. Disappointed.
