Easter Day 3 - Middle
Pretty much an unmitigated disaster. Having said yesterday that I was glad to be finally eliminating those big blow-out errors...I go and make a big blow-out error! Really rookie error, just panicking and not using my processes, compassed off down the wrong side of the slope to 14 and lost 7.5 minutes (in a middle!). Didn't take time to check direction using an exit feature, just rushed out of the control and was quickly just among a bunch of rock that I couldn't make fit to anything.
Had been having quite a good run up to that point, lost about 45s at 6 when I read the wrong bunch of rocks but otherwise had been glad to be keeping it together, especially near the start which was probably the most technical bit. Wouldn't have been near Tash or Bun but would have been nice just to finish with a clean performance. Physically felt tired which I guess is to be expected.

Easter Day 2 - Long
Forgot my Garmin, distance is about what the other girls did and climb from what was in the info.
An OK race, I suppose. Happy that I made no big errors, but was really messy and had two errors over 1min, at 16 and 19. Couple of 30s ones at 7, 10, 12 and embarrassingly at the finish control when I kept following some M21s...
Navigating well through the easy stuff near the start and feeling good, but really lacking confidence in the technical stuff later on, terrified to make an error so not attacking it at all. Physically fine, maybe lacking some speed and endurance but didn't hit a big wall. Need much more O training.
Soleus was really sore warming up, thankfully adrenaline got me through! Pretty sore again now.

Easter Day 1 - Sprint
Sooo frustrating, I just haven't been practicing those processes enough and today I had a complete panic. Found 1 fine but wasn't calm and lost complete contact with the map on the way to 2, ending up a few hundred metres away near 7, losing somewhere between 45s - 1min. Never really recovered, the rest was really messy and lost another 20 - 30s on 16 when I missed the steps up to the higher level.
Need much more sprint practice if I'm going to be successful at it, my mental state is such a huge factor and can make or break me.
Edit: lost 45s at #2, 15s at #16 and forgot about #27 where I lost 30s because I went the wrong side of the out of bounds and had to double back and go around.

Easter Prologue - Sprint Relay - Leg 1 in a team with Bruce, Pat and Tash.
Really good run! Quite clean, one maybe 15s error where I had a look in a bin store at #16 by accident when my control was on the other side of the wall. Started fairly slowly and worked into it which meant getting trapped waiting for my turn to punch at some earlier controls. Dropped the pack about halfway in and was running near Craig (unofficial), Bridget and Zoe, Zoe dropped off at some point and Bridget had a longer split near the end so I came in with a handy lead!
And we won! The other three had fab steady runs and we took it out. Yay!
Soleus was absolutely fine running, but stiffening up already after the race.

Work, then flight. Got in reasonably early but don't have a bike and not allowed to run so...
