Running race (FootO) 1:24:15 [4] ** 8.88 km (9:30 / km) +360m 7:54 / km

Early start for day 6 at 10:26, although was still 5th M35L away so not a terrible draw. Also not the sort of area that an early start was a massive disadvantage, although not the sort of area to suit me. After 190m climb in one go to the start, a couple of minutes to catch my breath then the first 3 controls about the same climb again made me quite weary and got me in the mindset of day 4 of just getting round. Made a mistake on 2 of about 2 mins as totally lost focus. Was not in the re-entrant I thought I was but one to the right, which if I actually looked at the map I would've realised. I actually went right past the flag without looking at it because it wasn't where my control was. Then 3 got a bit off line toward the end, didn't commit to the last bit of climbing soon enough. After 3 it was much more enjoyable course, nav not tricky but more pleasant physically. Lost a bit of time on the way to 11 as got two spurs mixed up and ended up way off line, think I got distracted by somebody at 10 who asked if the control was on a boulder (what part of a flag next to a 4' high rock do you not understand??), but I shouldn't have been distracted, splitsbrowser says only 40s lost, sounds about right. Actually the fastest mins/km of the week, but back to 15th place again so didn't actually count today, but more satisfied than my other non counting day (4). 15th overall as well, bit dissapointing given I was 6th overall after 3 days, but I'd have taken that beforehand.
