Bit of a gamble - decided to go to state champs and run - icing in the car on the way down.
Middle distance race - Kahli's Rocks (dense granite) running in trainers...
Small mistake at #1, coming into #2, I saw Stix leaving, but couldn't find the damned control. Lost over a minute. Then pretty clean, saw Stix as I was going into #10 and he was leaving. Overtook him at #13, then messed up #14. Together #15,#16, split routes to #17, together at #18 and then I got away a tiny bit through to the end (#23).
Struggled to read/stay in contact on the downhills in the steep stuff, probably lost a few minutes at #16,#18 just hesitant (ie lost).
Foot seems to have pulled up fairly well, should be good to go tomorrow.
