5días - E5 Long Jerez de los CaballerosMapWinSplits
Not my day. Not at all happy. Fast and short long course with some tricky legs and navigation between greens but where wasn’t able to perform as I wanted. Not making clear attackpoint an and just wandering around looking for controls. Head was not focus today and didn’t make good orienteering.
#1 bad routechoice from triangle, should have gone north and cross the first pass (+4'36")
#2 bad routechoice, although was confident of it on the attack along the curve, running wise was not that good, better routechoice was coming back and go southh along the open and then take the path on the west and attack from the top. Arrived at the area ok, but overshoot it and thought I had to continue longer (I thinkI was thinking 1:15.000 instead of 1/10.000). Felt a bit dizzy when at the top, think mind was not coping very well today. (+12')
#6 honestly did not expect the river to be such a fall, my plan was to climb the fence and had to go through the pre-salida. Honestly disliked this on the race.
#7 Plan was to go straight, was seeing the top of the hill and thought it was not a bad plan rather than rounding the mountain. Went okey through the green but then climbed too much and had to head down and not very confident navigating. (+6'43")
#8 a bit of a nightmare, plan was to climb up and then along, missread the description and was looking for a 3m rock, but instad was on something completely different. Wen too along the mountain had to head back and was just wandering around looking around rocks. Not good. (+8'42")
#9 Happy with the routechoice, as was running along the open path and with more control on my nav but then overshoot it and run passed it but did not see it, had to go the open grey until eventually got it. (map is bad calibrated tho, will try get a better pic) (+3'07")
+30min in errors lol, head today was definitely not working, honestly did not think it was that difficult of a race, would have liked to have performed better than this. The rest of time losses was mainly running wise, did not push that hard today.
