Australian Long Champs at Amiens.
Careful on the first then embarrassingly stupid on the second choosing a good safe route and then deciding to leave the track just before it led me to the control and wandering around clueless for a couple of minutes [Actually, looks as though I must have been on an unmapped track, which explains why nothing made sense after I left it, but I think if I had stayed on it it would have run into the mapped track and I would have been fine]. Rest of the course was ok but lacking purpose and confidence. Had a few times when I thought I knew exactly where I was and then felt completely lost a few seconds later but generally worked it out again pretty quickly.
Bashed my right shin on a rock walking slowly out of a drinks control staring at my map to plan a longer leg. Felt the rock on my toes but kept going thinking it was just a small one only to hit the top of it just below my knee and then fall over it dragging my shin along the top.
Finished nearly 10 minutes behind Bruce which is about what I expected.
