H4 at HPD Day 2, gps 4.5kms. Wasn't confident that I could stay clean for a third race in a row, and especially that the hills and cold wouldn't upset my body. Both proved correct, did 1 well but then had annoying 1-2 min mistakes at 2, 3 , 4 and 5, then the AF hit. Way off at 6, then couldn't climb and 7 was a 45-50m climb whichever way you went. Tried the safer route but once the climb started I couldn't recognise anything on the map and my head was spinning. Relocated after about 20 mins with a 50m climb to the control, which I had to negotiate 20m at a time with 2-3 mins rest, and one 10 min rest. Level or downhill to 8 and 9, which i was able to walk comfortably, but couldn't do the climb to 10 so walked to the finish.
