shoes: Mizuno Paradox 5 2020
Wessex Night League Hatch Warren & Beggarwood Park 2nd
7s down on 1st and 2s around of Nick (who made a big mistake near the end). Never had an after 8 for post run refuelling before... Need to find some perfect shoes for 50% tarmac & 50% mud wet grass conditions!
Pretty wet conditions again, some rain and some wet grass and some mud. The Night Leagues often have this weather! Horrendous drive up in rain and darkness and traffic.
Didn't quite get the right route, went for a controversial out the back through the start which was a good choice. After the Southern estate I stopped and couldn't decide whether to go into the park or not, then hadn't realised the next control was on the other side of the hedge (+1min), maybe should've done 9 and 30 later on when coming back (as didn't realise 5 was in a big dead end).
