British relay champs
First leg for 2nd team
Frustrating for a couple of reasons. First I was feeling physically better than yesterday despite two and a half hours running in my legs. Just needed BOC to be a few days later and be fully over my cold, so that's a shame.
Then after a good start to the run where I got my head in gear quickly, I got my head out of gear. Lost a lot of time searching for #4 having been convinced I was in the right place. I eventually got back to the same spot, different angle, saw the flag. I was flustered after that, made a bad decision for #9 and lots of little scrappy misses. It's a pain as I was capable of better but just didn't have a good day.

British champs classic
Was always going to be tough but felt like an uphill battle from early on. I made a small parallel error to #3 and then gradually realised on a steep slope of parallel reentrants and crags I was in trouble. Had to go right out and back in again and I'd blown 8 minutes on a short leg - avoidable as I could have checked where I crossed the stream at halfway.
Apart from that I was mostly good, especially on the vague marshy section midway, which I loved and remembered from junior days. Might have made better decisions late on to avoid the steep rocky slope but hey.
Physically didn't feel great, unfortunately it came a couple of days too early and I was still a bit under the weather. Felt like I was really having to manage my effort more and earlier than I'd have liked.
Still, what a day, area and course. Wouldn't have wanted to miss it.
