JK - Day 3 - 2nd
The stress levels were pretty high even before starting knowing I had to do well to stand a chance at selection. This was combined with the knowledge that there were some really strong M20’s stacked up behind me and nobody I could really use. Straight out the start box and the pressure already cracked me as I struggled with the 1:15 scale causing a needles parallel. After that I sprinted through the timed out crossing in full paranoia mode. Was then clean through the mid section of the map before some solid traffic lighting in the green section. Coming out of c15 i chose to run/walk a solid 200m through the fight before hitting the road then just pathing it the rest of the way. I then accidentally hit the road to early on the way to c17 and didn’t want to add the extra time of diverting for a drink. The rest of the run was uneventful apart from a stupid 1min mistake at c20 then a little one at c21 (rage/confusion). All round not the run i wanted but hopefully it’s good enough for selection.
