Orienteering race 45:00  ***** 3.8 km (11:51 / km) +80m 10:43 / km
Woc tour Day 3 - Crolles (middle distance)
This is the day my Woc tour started to fall apart!
Did a stupid thing by checking the overall results before my race to see I was in the top 20 then seen the winning time so far - 44mins.
lost 1 min on route choice to the first - my brain wanted me to do a 180 but i resisted the temptation. slow to the difficult 5th and 6th but going well
glanced at watch after punching the 6th - 26 mins and maybe only 1.2km to go! hell, I could get a good result here! Thats when it all fell apart...
250m on a bearing to the 7th the ground was impossible to scramble over in straight line must have drifted. It was impossible to relocate, everything looked the same and the map was weird! (confirmed by Roar afterwards)
20mins later I switched off the garmin and trudged out a beaten man :-(
