Warm up for the middle. Legs were tired, but all over body not exhausted, which was good. A plus on Georgia a couple of years ago.

Despite fatigue was running better than I was worried I might, to the extent that I finally made a racing mistake today. Decided to go out to the path to number 6, but then came back into the woods without a real attackpoint and really messed up. Think I was actually probably pretty close when I first went in, but then went in the wrong direction, thought I'd relocated on a depression, still couldn't find it, bailed to the track, ran to number 7, and then back to the control. I swear there was an extra depression on that slope! Interested to see the Quickroute and see how far away I was.

Nothing that major after that - perhaps a couple of sub optimal routes. Felt pretty bad before the final loop physically, but then managed to finish the death loop of hills at a decent pace.

I was therefore pretty disappointed to still be at the back of the pack. I guess without that mistake I'd have been in there.

So, still a lot to work on. There's no doubt I'm moving in the right direction, but there's still a long way to go. Part of it fitness and part of it just attitude to racing - I definitely have to get my head back in the game too.

Really enjoyed seeing the juniors perform well, and congratulations to the team! I'll be cheering for you all in Scotland!
