Day 6 - Ardchattan
Seeded start, fastest last.
The feedback from early runners, was it was fast and easy, exactly not what i wanted when i was in a close pack for overall placings with Ali, Ross, Andrew and John!
Deceied i'd go for 100 % no mistakes.Was very supriesed to catch sight of Ross at #4, as i didn't expect to see him, given the strength of his hill running on day 4. Pushed hard, 10s mistake at 7, 20s at 9. Had good routes, and finally caught ross when he made a mistake at 10. A bit rough through 11 to 14, here (more than elsewhere) the map was underdone, and there was quite a lot going on that wasn't mapped. Then me and ross a took different routes to 15 to arrive exactly at the same time. Really dead from 17 to 18, then slightly too high for fence crossing to 20, and ross went low and missed it, so i powered into finish.
Probably only 40s of mistakes, and caught by noone, so pretty pleased with that. Ali got me in the overall standings - kudos, but i was pleased to come out marginally ontop of my other rivals for the week :-)
