BOC Relays - 3rd - Women’s Short
1st leg (4th, +~3mins)
Set out quite fast and hit #1 at the front with an syo lady. Was running well at the front to #2 but missed it in the circle allowing everyone to catch up. Mairi got slightly ahead to #3 and then i messed up the exit to #4 and Mairi and Kirstin got away. Pulled back time on Mairi at the end of the leg though and was entering the control as she was leaving. Just behind for #5 then i missed #6 and she got away.
Solo from here to the end and was just a bit of a mental battle to keep going because i had the filthiest stitch ever. Some random guy videoed me just before #8 and it really put me off and i missed it letting Chloe and someone from Aire catch me and overtake me. Lost 90s here. Then a bit of a panic into the finish but managed to get a decent gap just being a faster runner on the easy bit.
Not happy with my performance, i was so so scrappy and just so slow through it all. Not great. Loved the mass start experience though just a shame i kept losing so much time. Not my kind of area though!
Team managed to get up to 3rd (and so close to 2nd!!) which is great tho <3 woo!

BOC Long - 3rd
Felt sooo sick all the way to the start and was debating making myself throw up to try and feel better but too much of a wimp haha. Think it was down to badly timed and little food.
Was going great til I made a mess of #12 getting distracted and then for some reason turned left instead of right when executing my plan. Nice one bruvvaaaa! Lost about 2mins. Still wouldn’t have changed my position without it because Rach n Pip smashed it today woo go gals!!!!
Happy with this because even though I messed up I still podiumed and my mistake didn’t cause me to lose positions, my running speed did.
Ran great at the start I think but hit a bit of a wall on the slight hill up to #9 after all the fast running at 7,8,9. After that was a bit of a grind still feeling sick af.
