IOC Classic, Lough an Cogair, M21E, 13.6km, 350m, 27 controls. Lovely area, wet but runnable with plenty of boulders and hills but nothings too steep, . Really enjoyed it. Ran steady but not too strong for first half with a few small (but acceptable!?) errors. Started pushing harder after about an hour and was going well until #21 when the brain fell apart, had no plan and resulted in having no idea where I was, had to return to the previous control and start again, 6 minutes lost!!! Pushed hard thereafter as I'd nothing to loose and ran really well to the finish. Sort of figured that everyone would loose some time do was still hoping for a decent result. Think my 8th classic title was just that. Very pleased to be able to keep ahead of all the young boys for another year - next year is going to be much harder though.
