Good race, not amazing but good enough to be happy. Started 6th which meant no tracking and literally no pack running. Started quite slow, easing into the terrain and lost time early just due to speed. Also made a small error (30 sec) at 2 on entry to control.Walked some of the hill to 2 to plan route to 4 which maybe could have been done on the run. Nailed route to 4 but lost 2 mins close to the circle due to a poor attackpoint. Got into a pack when I got out of the green and put some good speed in up to the pivot. Split here and made a 1 min error interpreting the vegetation wrong. Another 3, 30 second errors at 11, 12 and 14. Navigation in the yellow/green wasn't to bad butI became lazy with compassing and it was quite hot (not as hot as later on in the day though). 1:30 mistake on 18 when I had to go wide after not being able to find the rough open and a small 30 sec error on entry to 20. 1 min lost over the last three controls as I had a lot of energy and wanted to run hard but shoul have concentrated on the nav. All up an alright run but could have taken 7-8 mins off on mistakes and more on running speed as I had too much energy at the end and should have pushed harder in the yellow/green.
