World cup relay, 4.5km, 15c. LTU 1 - Ausre, Sandra, Me (Gabija wanted to take easier and no pressure). Felt pretty crap in the morning - i was sleeping pretty bad, in the eyes had this 'sand feeling'. Got some comments before the start if Im not sick, during warm up felt feverish and had some weird HR - so I knew that I should be careful during the run. Messed up at the start - got into green and didnt find the path. When I found it - Sweden, France and Mix was already in front. At the control got into parallel situation - thought the re-entrant was 'my' stream, so was looking for the hill. Here i lost France and Sweden completely, just Australian girl was there, lost her on the way to 3rd where I went all the way up to the path and she went kind of straight. On 5th got cought by swiss - completely lost her at 7th - where she and austrian had slightly shorter forking. Still saw her here and there till 12th. On no 13 to the left route choice - which failed to see yesterday, but today it was a bit more around, so not sure if it was so good. Also felt over pretty badly on the path there - got some pain tears and had to be carefull with my quad as it was damn painful. The end was all the way stupid uphill which I couldnt even bother to push - was more concerned about my leg.
Was 13min behind Haataja - not sure what kind of forking or short cut she had as she beat everyone by 1.5min.
