Still got my 500 points which was one of the main aims of the evening. The area didn't look too tricky but the planning was pretty decent, a few close controls which actually had a big run round to get (and a bit of control pick). My right knee was definitely hurting and that meant I couldn't run as hard and meant I didn't enjoy it as much (it was right knee pain 2 years but that felt a bit different). Don't think I quite got the best order, identified early on that there were 2 tricky ones to fit in and I decided to get one straight away. On hindsight it may have been better to start in the fields, then work my way round the urban areas. Also should have got one of the control pick controls, in the middle rather than leaving it.
Made a few errors and a few hesitations, couldn't decide which way was faster a few times and probably should have been more decisive. Also didn't spot a hedge in an open area, ran past it and got confused by where I was. In general, it was quite tricky to keep thumbed and orientated on a large map.
