Sprint Qualification at World Masters. Garmin 2.2km, so pretty clean. Couple of small errors, but quite a few stops to check the map. Finished 9th in heat, so should qualify comfortably. Haven't got the map back, and no splits up yet, will post more later.
Later: lost time in the circle at 1, going slightly right and getting confused by another control. Took a while to work out a route to 2, and didn't execute it particularly well, but did better than most - very well-set leg. 2-3 another complicated leg which I didn't execute well. Won the split from 3-4, and 3rd 0n 4-5 with the road route, running fast. 5-6, 6-7 also good legs for me, but 7-8 was BAD - didn't see the obvious route, and went in the opposite direction for 100m. 9 was fairly easy, but 10 was a corker - think I picked the correct route which was the reverse of the second part of 1-2. Too slow on short, easy leg to 11, then stuffed 11-12 - couldn't see either of the route choices, and after dithering for a while eventually picked the slowest. Managed a reasonable finish from there, although could have gained a few seconds by being more decisive after punching 12, considering I'd just run within 20m of 13 to get to 12.
A fairly late start tomorrow, will have to be in better form.
