British Relays - Men Open - 3rd Leg - 2nd Overall

Knew it would be tough to chase Kris so instead of trying to bridge the gap I decided to wait and see if he would slip up. He never did, no surprise. Had a decent battle with Speake though. Very (completely?) different gaffles so lots of splitting and rejoining again, absolute textbook relay racing. Eventually he got unlucky with a significantly larger gaffle and I managed to sneak away, rather thankfully as I was really struggling to hold his terrain pace. Last loop running slightly scared but had a big enough gap on him for his smaller last loop to not matter.

Very clean run with under 30s of slips, little bit tired and sick from being a bit hungry/sleepy but decent stuff regardless. Nice to pick up the fastest leg split of the day too but unsure how other peoples gaffles compared.

British Long - Balmoral - M21E - 5th, +2mins

Before the race I expected it to be a physical struggle but surely technically clean after last week's terrain and a few months in Halden. It ended up being the other way round. Unfocussed from the start and quite frankly lucky to find number 1. Confident though I headed to 2 not checking my map enough and binned almost a minute. Panicked and lost more to 4 before a lot to 5. Considered retiring and was so ashamed but turns out this had happened to everyone.

From here it was essentially game over already. I felt like I was hitting the wall by 30mins and wasn't sure how I'd even finish. At the first TV control I could barely pump out any rational thought but after having a gel I was shocked to feel fine again. Made a few slips on the southern hill but was fairly stable and taking the correct long routes, just not committing nor attacking hard enough. I then took another gel and had a very fast final section before finishing fairly intact, but a total of about 7 minutes of very avoidable mistakes which is very frustrating given the results.

Essentially threw away what could have easily been an excellent race with potential selections following on because I felt like I wouldn't have time to look at the map, an effect from running at EOC I think. Perhaps I was still a bit tired from last week and a few heavy days this week, but no medals or selections were/are deserved out of my racing performance recently, I need to learn how to navigate first. Back to school before Jukola I think.
