Well. End result was more of the same. 2nd again, but again happy with the effort.
A few little bobbles near controls and one significant time loss (about 2 min) on #3. That one was annoying as I had a definite attackpoint, but then wasn't careful enough heading in, missed by not much, guessed wrong and started playing pinball for a bit before bailing out till i could see the fence corner and then went straight back to it.
I knew I had started conservatively, as I was worried about being able to finish the course off OK, but looking at the splits, it's a little alarming how far down I was at halfway. Then again, i won the second half of the course (12-finish) I think, so maybe it was the right way to go.
Given that I got less than 5 hours sleep last night and my stomach felt rubbish before I started (and the fact that I haven't trained properly for a long time) pretty happy with the weekend overall.
Finally got a long course victory over Craig after 16 years, but it feels pretty hollow :(
