M21S at the November Classic. 8.8k, 200m climb, 14C.
Tried to run quite fast, and risk routes I wouldn't usually have taken - sometimes it paid off, other times it didn't. Essentially treating it as a bit of training, there was definitely a tendency to choose the more risky route alternative and see if it worked. Two biggest errors were on the compass, and trying to navigate off veg rather than the more obvious contours in one case.
Physically was a bit frustrating as really wanted to push it in some areas but couldn't, it was so open and runnable you just wanted to go fast.
Knee was niggling a bit, groin feels a bit stiff now. But generally good fun New Forest!
