800m

Had a 70metre handicap (shortest out of everyone in the field, seems a bit odd that no one runs the full 800m...)

No chance of catching the winners. Gave up with half a lap (~150m) to go.

1600m

Last race was 45mins late. This one was 20mins early...so no time to warm up, only just enough time to change shoes!

7th. Hard to see hoow many ahead so sprinted the final half a lap to take another place thinking it might be top 6 (prize money) but it wasn't.

Jack Wood won.

Day 5
Long

Bit scrappy in the first section of forest. A few poor routes, some faffing over fallen trees and was to low on 4.

Bad route to 10 and GG appeared ahead of me (6 minutes behind). Had to put a shift in over the next few controls to catch him. Then yoyoed a bit through the open area and lost him going back into the wood. By which time I was suffering.

Glad to finish. Felt a bit rough for rest of the day.

Surprised to win today and take the overall lead!

Day 3
Middle
Dundurn & Cnoc a Mhadaidh

Was a little anxious after running round the warm up map, not the type of area my ankle needs at the moment. So decided to focus on the navigation and accept whatever speed I was able to run at without taking too many risks.

Went well. Didn't make too many mistakes, was able to push hard on the uphills but was losing time on the downhills. Never felt like I was going that fast, HR average was really high though so must have been working hard.

Caught Toby on way to 12, then was mostly just ahead of him to finish which probably helped.

Great new area not far from home!
