SWOC street-o from Pontprennau. Thought it was nicely planned by Mark with no obvious route out from the start (although maybe a bit long!). Just "chugging" tonight and not taking it seriously - with Matt Stott most of the time.
S-3-24-20-8-10-9-11-29-21-6-7-4-1-5-28-25-15-13-12-2-F. 270 points and 3rd place (I think).
In the end decided to go up north first as quite a long way to get to any sites so in practice would never happen at the end. Detoured via 3 only because Marcus/Matt did - and caught them at the lamppost since it had a different number to the options!
After 21 was set on going 6 then 7 as best route but in hindsight, going straight from 21 to 7 would have been better as 6-1-4-5 would have been shorter. 5-28 was "interesting" guessing a route through the trees and mud. Then hit a dead end on way out to 25.
Legs not into running fast so opted out of going further south and came back at fairly leisurely pace to be well early. Earned myself an easter egg for my performance in the league - helped by coming to all of them!
No S&C today because:
1. Want to test out theory that it's causing strain in legs and preventing ankles from re-strengthening. And would like it to feel a bit better before Llanbedr-Blaenavon race if I'm doing it. Will take next couple of days off it too.
2. Nearly 3 months has been quite a long time without a day off.
3. The time I would have been doing this was spent on the phone seeking an explanation why my electricity usage has been "estimated" to be double what I used last winter - 40 mins on the phone quoting meter readings and £200 has magically disappeared from my bill.
4. Got home from pub and couldn't be bothered.
