A mixed bag of a race. Struggled in the scrubby stuff and felt very slow. However, was generally navigating cleanly and planning ahead well. Two proper slip ups, where I hadn't visualised the control site properly at 6, and where I couldn't make any sense of anything at 7. Both would have been solved by taking the higher route. Was surprised to be quite close to Ali and Sam after feeling rough running at the start.

Warm down with Ali. Too many cool people to talk to!

Interesting forest sprint from Jordan. Lots of short legs and I always felt I was navigating one leg at a time, things came up very quickly and had no time to plan. Tired legs on the hills, and was losing time to Sam and Ali on every split. A couple of sub optimal route choices and a big ARGH moment at the start.

Short warm down with Ali and Marie but stomach was blah and had to curtail it. Then lots of sitting around in the sun with great people, then eating a mountain of avocados and burgers at Ali's. Fantastic day, great show from the West Point lot. Good times.

Changed into my Inov8s and had a bit of a jog round. Stomach still blah. Boo.
