British Night Champs - Muir of Dinnet.
M18 - 11th

Well that was interesting to say the least. It was probably the toughest run I've ever done. Arrived at start and body just felt weak from nerves. #1 took 11mins which is just silly so probably 5mins binned there as I didn't have a clue where I was. Followed the telegraph wire to #2 and came off too early. The next three were pretty solid and Gooch caught me up at #5. Spiked #6 which was a massive confidence boost. To #7 it was either left or right so being the retard I am I went left. To #8 I was expecting to hit a track which definitely wasn't there and then I was lost. Walked in a random direction and spiked it which was lucky. Fine for the next two and then messed up #11. Then fine into the finish and just made it under 2 hours. A massive reality check on my nav and fitness and that I've got a long way to go.

The main thing is water though. I'm sorry but how can you not have water at the finish????? There's no excuse really as the road was 20m away. Very odd.

Running (Trail) 35:53 [3] 5.15 km (6:58 / km) +206m 5:48 / km
ahr:145 max:166 shoes: Brooks Ghost 11

Chris gave me a tour of the hill in Rawtenstall. Mainly a leg loosener for tomorrow. Felt fine apart from right Achilles a bit tight and nice to break into the new shoes even though they weren't the best choice.
6 PM


Plan for tomorrow is mainly to play it safe with route choices and only take one leg at a time. Would be gassed if I could get under 90mins and redeem myself from the horrible run from Jircs. Also really need to use attackpoints as it's so vague. Annoying that it's emit and strange that they're not using kites.
