PM WOC Sprint Final in Tartu at 1:4000. Just happy to be on the start list. Started off quite strong with good routes and then picked a few slower routes to #5(changed my plan which was bad) and #6(also should have been pushing harder here),#10, 50sec+(picked the best route, just completely lost my head after being dead from running up the very steep hill for the second time, I was lazy and thought the two walls which were very tall were the two buildings and was very confused), #12(another bad route). Happy with some of the legs but need to be constantly pushing harder (especially on the shorter legs), I find that if I'm not thinking about pushing the pace to get somewhere I start to over read the map and slow down too much. Also need to read the map fewer times and trust myself that I know where I am going. Not too happy with the placing (44th) and being basically dead last but oh well I didn't deserve anything better and my goal was just to qualify for the final. All things to work on for next years final ;), I know I have lots more to give. Cool around 15C.
Side note why weren't people DSQ for running through the artificial fences!? (the ones that didn't turn back?...such bs!)
