JK Relay, 2nd leg Women’s Trophy

wow. erm, dunno what to say tbh just blew every chance my team had to do well, honestly feel awful i am so so sorry Niamh and Charlotte.

Took like 10 mins or somet to #1 and then everyone else obvs overtook me and it was just a bit of a crawl round the course (rest was mostly fine other than #1, just felt so crapppp).
One of those days where it’s just like why do i even do this sport when i do shit runs like this when it matters most? I’m miles better than this (well i thought i was but evidently i’m not) so why did i let this happen today? Honestly so embarrassed and i think if i ran around blindfolded i could’ve found number 1 quicker ahaha.

Mentally a bit shite now because not only did i let myself down i let my team down massively. Haven’t felt this crap in a while because things had been going alright but had a bit of a moment after my race and then just tried to forget about it but now writing this it has hit me again ahhh. Hopefully this won’t be the start of another crash but kinda feels like it at the moment.

Sorry for the long write up, sorry for the shit performance, sorry sorry sorry.

JK Long - 3rd
Better performance than yesterday. Still a few time losses though the first at #6 where apparently there was an elephant trod through the field to the control (according to dad) and i went all around the path not thinking properly (was a bit confused as i though it was gonna be down but it was up). Then #8 was very hesitant on the way, then had a mind blank and went up the wrong path because it was the first one i spotted so had to turn and go back, also lost time unsure in the circle there. Then another mess at #18 where i tried to go through the green because there was a larl path but that quickly ended so i quickly bailed.

Overall know i could’ve done better this weekend and feel a bit annoyed and disappointed considering how hard i’ve trained this year, just to basically throw everything out the window this weekend.
Still waiting on official results for overall but think i’ve snuck 3rd which is a bit bittersweet but at least i have broken my JK curse and i have FINALLY got on the podium!

JK middle - 4th +1:06
very very very very scrappy
pippa caught me (2mins) at #3 after i went to the wrong spur not looking at my compass. Too many mistakes after this as well to write up. Got back in front at #14 after getting dropped by pip at #6 and managed to pull back a minute. Did 300m extra than Scarlet so just shows how bad I was. Still in among it for tomorrow tho. Hopefully better in the long.

JK Sprint - 5th (4th Brit)
gods sake. 30s of mistakes. #7 - knew i was in the right place, didn’t see it, ran out, stopped, read my map, crap, ran back in again, got it. Nice en! Then also cocked up exit of #12 as was reading my map and then missed the gate to #13 and lost 26s to Scarlet on this. Miles behind Rachel and Pip but would’ve been somewhere near 3rd minus my stupid mistakes. Also heat killed my speed but same for everyone on that.

sprint course at moorclose
going at a pace where i had to concentrate to read the map well but not too fast to tire myself out, still was a lil bit confused on one or two tho and had to stop at #17 to check i was in the right place as there was another path not on the map.
