Euromeeting chase ... not good

To be honest I don't have much to say about this race. I just didn't concentrate during the race!

Before the race I realised I had not really thought about day2 at any point. On the way to the race we stopped at the café and I said "the organisers haven't publish a second final details for today", turns out they was on the main bulletin I just hadn't read them.

During the race I knew there was something wrong with my mental side but I didn't really know what. I told myself if you stay positive from here to the finish there is something to be pleased with. But that wasn't the issue. I was enjoying the race and terrain.

After the race enjoyment left pretty quickly. I was very disapointed and angry with myself. I was confused and in a sort of shock with what happened.

Now I have realised I just didnt concerntate! I was thinking about everything execpt how to orienteer and what I should be doing! I dont really know why this but I think it was down to lack of racing. Usually in the build up to races I go to a load of smaller races and get used to this sort of thing but not this last month. And the fact that the day before went well meant I felt little bit too comfortable that this would also be ok!

Euromeeting middle... Average to pretty good (what I wanted)

Some sections was really good but one big mistake. Pretty happy and felt a lot better than I feared in the last few weeks

a bit nuts with strong gusty winds, hear a load of branches drop. When I worked as a tree surgeon we called the "widow makers" ... exciting
