Fatigued, both physically (daft after 10 days off running) and mentally (work must have taken more out of me last week than I thought). Spiked 1 but then made silly mistakes, was actually quite glad of the Orange-standard planning around the end as, although my running on paths by then was pretty shoddy, my fine nav would have been even worse. 27mins down on RichR, although Edgars Bertuks did 81.
This performance was at a similar standard to last year. I'm both pleased and annoyed at this - pleased as I can do this when knacked, but annoyed at the sloppiness of my nav/picking up map detail/thought processes considering my reduced speed. If anything it was good practise on a 1:15k for the first time since Creag Mhic, and a reminder of the brambly fayre of the Midlands.
Pleased to get in under 2 hours/7min/km, not so pleased to get Agmen'd/be at the wrong end of a pack!
