Great chance to run on a World Cup course on a top SE area. Thanks to Paul for putting it on.
Sadly though I am finding O a kind of frustrating experience at the moment. I was all over the place technically and it's hard to learn what to do better when the whole race is scrappy. Probably number 1 was the most revealing: went off line a touch and reached the reentrant too low. The veg had grown since the last map update making it look like I could be in the right place. But instead of moving on and checking up/down I just stood there trying to make it fit, which was obviously never going to get me to the control.
Physically I'm not fit for terrain running as I don't have the leg strength. Frequently I would be going straight into the red moving at a slow jog or walk through the veg.
So I think I need to either make a proper effort to practice the right skills - or else just focus on other things as this is not motivating or enjoyable any more even on a great course in a great area.
