Edinburgh - lots of learning from today :)
Pretty happy with the race. Only bad point was I didn't find the gap I planned to use to 2, so lost 20secs there, but no other mistakes. Was just expecting to be racing for about 16 mins, so I massively died after the spectator control as I'd gone too hard to sustain the pace for 21 mins.
Was a bit disappointed when I finished but actually I beat a few good people who normally would beat me, so it wasn't so bad.
Totally forgot to make any use of the touch free as well (what an idiot actually punching every control), so something to get used to there.
Some practice to be had also with how to deal with starting straight into technical stuff in the future I think.
However it was awesome to race with the world's best :)

A warm-down jog over to the night sprint area. Jogged the W55+ course. So fun! Levels levels! Didn't get caught out at that speed, but I bet I'd have had a mare if that'd have been race pace :P
