Big weather change today: cold and windy with patches of rain. Good start thru to 3 then got distracted by other runners (should be better than that by now!) resulting in major error (10+ mins) on 4. After sorting that out, was steady most of the way home, with a smaller miss on 11.
Didn't enjoy the end of the course which was 5 technically easy controls in and out of side gullies on the main watercourse, with just physical effort required to get up and down. Thought better use could have been made of some of the smaller gully systems to the north of the main channel to test navigation skills at the end when runners are fatigued (as was done nicely on Day 1).
Overall fairly happy with result as I knew I would be well off the pace given current physical issues. Frustrated by stupid errors on Days 1 and 3 that I shouldn't have made at the pace I was going.
