I love Stockhill. Started carefully then made a bit of a mistake on 4. Cut through forest on really runnable extraction lane but wasnt sure where I was when I hit track at end, gambled and headed right. Realised when I could see runners on path that I'd come over too far and got back on track. From then on made very few mistakes, spiked 10 which was very pleasing (although if it was in the wrong pit ....!!). Jan caught me here and we raced each other from here to finish. I definitely pushed harder than I normally would (must learn from this). 17-18 went round paths as Jan went straight, was just faster than him although marginal. 19-20 slipped and fel, somebody asked if I was alright, said yes, got up slipped again, cutting hand on something so now struggling to get blood off map as well as mud. dithered for 5 seconds staring at 20 thinking "that's the control we went to earlier" without thinking that we might be visiting it a second time... 21 got to control 102 which we'd been to on the first half. Jan had got a bit ahead by now but chose direct route to 24, I ran round paths and got there just ahead of him. Clean through to finish from there.
Pleased with result, first time under 70 mins on a brown course.
