SSS 7 at Belrose (Fireclay Gully)
My best run of the series so far. Similarly enjoyable course to last time here with a tricky street puzzle and nice trails to the west. View from the clifftop at #1 was stunning in the twilight.
Planned a good route leaving out 9,10 & 16, finishing 45s over. Felt comfortable striding out a bit more and was able to go at 4min/km for the first 4km, albeit on gradually descending streets. Struggled up the hill from 25-5-12 and was hesitant around the bush loop approaching 1-21-2. Pushed myself to exhaustion in the final part from 22-17-7-27-28. Had pencilled in #16 between 22-17 but a good decision on the run to drop it. Couldn't have scored any higher and will probably pay the price at squash comp tomorrow.
550 equalled Glenn, Andy 540, James 520.
