Northern Champs Wharncliffe-4th
So chuffed I’d guessed the start in the right place that I promptly picked up my map and did a 180 down the track to #1. Quickly recovered loosing 45 secs. Clean through till 4 where a shocking route choice to 5 led to some wandering around in a boulder field. Hit a track and saw carys and Lucy who i’d seen at 4 and tried to speed up but only meant i made a muddle of in the circle. Lost 3 mins.
Clean until 10 where I overshot it and then had to double back on myself. Lost 2 mins. Finding it quite hard to breathe from here on and kept coughing. Caitlin caught Lucy and i here then stuck w her till 14 where a micro route choice error meant I overtook. All clean from here on.
Overall very surprised with my result as the taper wasn’t ideal and breathing was a muddle.
Blimey that route choice really was shocking http://obasen.orientering.se/winsplits/online/en/d...
