Clifton Downs - re-run the parts of the course from 10 days ago ("Green") that I hadn't done (due to inexplicable achilles pain) & also being late for marshalling, due to no-one going off before 12 noon, due to no Phil Warry. And feeling awful (then, not now).
NOTE: the map was inconsistent - I wondered why I was struggling 10 days ago - the black X means seat - except when it doesn't (eg. gym equipment). Black X is NOT on the legend - WHY NOT? And if a seat's on the ground, it may or may not be on the map. Sorry, but that's not good enough - esp. when there are beginners around.
Leg 3, which I'd really ballsed up, in 1:22 (against 3:30 - 2 mins lost)
Also no 6 - re-ran, the map made no sense to me, showing "semi open" all the way to the road when in fact there's a canopy. 2:42 vs. 4:50 - another 2 minutes lost.
Then re-ran from no 9 to finish, pretty much at "race pace", in 21:35.
So that plus earlier split 23:47 less the errors taken out giving almost exactly 41 minutes.
That's not too bad; Adam did 32, but surprisingly 3 mins behind Matthew Pickering, who I beat last Saturday at NGOC. And behind Nick Gracie. Hmm. http://www.bristolorienteering.org.uk/sites/defaul...
Worthwhile. Plus some warmup /down. Good jaunt. Felt vastly more at home with M&C today than 10 days ago. Too late for CSC on Sunday? May do some more on thursday, on PurDown, or something. https://www.strava.com/activities/1234471923https://www.strava.com/activities/1234471980https://www.strava.com/activities/1234471988
