H3 course at Lovers Lane, GPS 5.83. Glance at the map showed something more M-like, but appearances can be deceptive - I knew it would be steep, thick and difficult to interpret in places. By the time I got to 3 I realised that rough open was likely to be head high prickly moses and even some of the 100% yellow was overgrown. 4 was an uphill slog, with the most obvious route to 5 being back down again - DUH! Decided to take a safe but very wide route to 6 as I didn't trust the vegetation on the straight route, this cost 3-4 mins. Couldn't really say that 7 was in the right place, but came straight on to it. Promptly stuffed the exit, don't know how I survived the downhill slag heaps, but ended up on a track which I didn't realise was the wrong, lower one. Eventually crossed over the spur and headed into prickly moses hell. At one point I couldn't move, so retreated back uphill. Lost a full 9 mins on this leg. Exhausted by 10 and lost another 2 mins climbing very slowly up to 11. Looked a bit too soon at 13 dropping another 2 mins.

Tough day, but then I probably need that - haven't got much time to build fitness again.
