WMOC Long Final, Gribskov:M45A, 10.3km. A long way on a very hot day. As usual I couldn't get my head into race mode for the long race; set off slowly and never got any faster. Broken bits didn't like the long path options, so I did a lot of direct running through the forest, which was certainly slower but kinder on the body. One big miss at #10 where I allowed myself to get distracted by two faster M45s running past me, and forgot my plan; 6 mins lost on that one, and 2 on another, but I was was generally just very slow. One day I'll work out that it's OK to try to actually run at a long O race...

WMOC Middle M45B Final. 2nd. The top 25% of the B final runners win qualification to the Long A final so, given that I was 4th last starter, I had to give it a shot. Set off hard and promptly blew 1 min on the 1st control, caught by my 1-min man (but both of us catching the guy in front of me). Then was in a tussle with those two until about #6, although always doing my own thing, which was to nail the bearings; 1 min-ahead-man was path running and 1-min-behind was following me. Got away from 1-min-behind at #6, but blew #10 by 80s when I head-butted a tree so hard I saw stars. No more losses, though, and was surprised to see 1-min-ahead guy coming back to me when I was leaving #14. Pushed on through the next three and ran hard all the way to finish, ending up in surprise 2nd place, 1:54 down. Promoted!

WMOC Forest Qualifier. M45: 7.8km. Very nice. Shame about the pillock with the map and compass.
(Unlearnt) lessons from orienteering #648.2: when you're having a clean run, don't think to yourself "gosh, I'm having a clean run", promptly forget to orienteer, and lose 4 mins on #16. And then DEFINITELY don't panic and lose another 3 mins on #18. Idiot. Missed the A final by, mmm, a couple of places? Certainly by less than 7 minutes...
