Day 2 at Umuna, 7.24kms. Won the first 2 splits, and was leading Joe at 7, but then lost 4 mins + at 8 - which was in the exact spot of one of my Boomer controls. Will need to wait for Routegadget to see exactly what I did, but should have known my approach wasn't matching the map and slowed down. May have been something to do with Oscar cruising by on H1 and going to the same control - he ended up losing 10 mins. Tried to run flat out for most of the long leg to 10, and ended up 100m wide. Lack of fitness then came in on the last 5 shorter legs where i was starting to cramp. Could have done with a drink - probably should have had 2 cups at 7, but I hadn't spotted that there wasn't a drink control in the last 40% of the course. Ended up 5 mins down on Joe, wouldn't have beaten him, but should have been much closer.
