SOL3 at Dallaschyle near Inverness. Drive up was terrible in heavy rain but cleared with dry and warm weather for the event.
Wobbled into #2 then could not get the map to match the ground at #3 and lost about 12 minutes. Several others afterwards seemed to have a similar problem but need to be more accurate in such terrain and correct for errors faster. Clean run through to #16, when two other in front started looking too early - knew it was too early but started looking too! Probably lost about 8 minutes. Need to learn to do my own thing with other around!
Should have been around the 10min/km, if not for these two mistakes - frustrating. Need to get more focussed before run.
Winner's time: 56:25 (nearly 10 minutes ahead of 2nd place!)
My time: 1:44:43 = 185% of winners time (154% of 2nd place time)
