Given how much I really wanted to run on this map and that Noel was setting I should have pulled my socks up today but failed miserably! Head again not in it and already getting into catching up on things left undone by a week away... was going reasonably (falling a lot and a little scrappy, bit ok) until10. Lost a lot of time here, did not see control on first approach, saw another and misidentified it’s feature so then corrected into vague area. Decided to cut losses and start again from the round (amateur hoir!). Got to same place as first time. This time stuck to guns and eventually saw flag. Then ran off in wrong direction to lose further big time on next control. Knew it was all over then so was not pushing well through easy shot legs. Capped off the day by not seeing last control, heading wrong direction and nearly taking out Tara Sutherland who was. Running directly at the control. Lucky she had more momentum to my weary aytack and we both stayed upright!
