BAOC Bagshot Heath
From a great fast start, a real disaster. Thrown concentration having upped my pace when control #9 was missing and we re-grouped. I then tried to break again, over-ran #10 by some distance and got properly lost at #11. The rest of my run was at a dis-spirited lower pace. Details in the splits analysis.

Race pace was a shocking 10:51/km; over-ran 35%.

Ranmore Common & Box Hill
Maybe it's the cold dense air, maybe it's that the oil in the bottom bracket hasn't warmed up, maybe it's the increased friction of a wet road surface. Or maybe it's the extra 7lb I'm carrying. Whatever, this is the first time I've noticed the hill on the climb up Ranmore Common, and I was passed on the climb of Box Hill.

12sec/km slower than three months ago. I'm out of condition. Must do better.

TVOC Wendover Woods
I can't pass up the opportunity to run in Wendover Woods (even if I do prefer Coombe Hill), and it was a lovely day for it: not too cold, clear and still.

A complex sprint-like start which I took slowly but without any major issues. I took the lower route across the valley but then couldn't find #16 which cost me a lot of time - 11:10 for the leg and 44th/48. Slow up the hill, carrying too much extra weight and not enough sleep, but then ran well.

Highlight was 2nd on control #22 and 6th on control #23. Slightly off route choice to #24 going too high but running through #5 and #6 to spike it from above. Tiring uphill finish.

19th out of 48. Race pace was 9:47 min/km; over-ran 24%.

One small downside: lost my heart rate monitor crossing the road from #10-11. The good thing about GPS is that I can see exactly where I lost it; the bad thing is that going back to find it isn't cost-effective. :(
