Felt ok despite yday, slight hamstring niggle but not serious. Probably.
Easy first couple but missed tiny set of steps on 3 and so went all the way around. Used them on 6.
Happy to 16 although slipping around all over the place on the paved bits. Trails would've been better. Overtaken by Shuoc (Nathan Lawson I think?) uphill and then he took a better route than me into 17too. Caught NOR (someone at Notts uni; 1min ahead starter) here though.
Got a bit of a gap on 18 (hillier but shorter route) and stayed just ahead until 22. Didn't know what happened 23 but turns out he made an error, so ahead to 24 but then I didn't see the cut through through the OOB and so went all the way around, and he was right with me again, then I failed to cope with the pressure and missed the control and he got ahead. So playing catch up now, some diff route choices but very similar up to 29, then 30 my route was bad (and bad to 31 too) and he was away. Both made same mistake on 32 going wrong side of uncrossable, but I gained some time back on 33 only to lose it again on 34, introducing totally unnecessary steps and corners. Pressure again. Then too low for 34 as well!
Thought I'd blown it but the sprint on the last few controls had saved me, finished 4 secs up (and so had dropped nearly a minute over the last 5 controls, which isn't great). Still, not bad for someone who ran 30 miles yesterday, right?
No results yet since two controls mislabelled and they're sorting that out.
Enjoyed the run; good area; not raining.
