Eurgh. I'm sorry Martyn and Steve, but that was a crap course. Number one, run to the middle of the trees. 2 was fine. Number 3, run to the trees, follow a path. I messed up the end of this one a little bit by there being far more paths on the map.
3-4: I think one of the worst legs I have ever run on. 1.5km slog across the moor, ice cold watery marsh, no route choice, no complex end control. Just awful.
4-5: Striaght back down again. By the time I reached the track I could no longer feel my feet.
Messed up 6, was too low, not focussing enough on the detail or slowing down enough.
6-7: Boring. 7-8 - only nice leg. Lovely little quarry bit, really nice.
8-9: Think I nailed the route choice by going high.
9-10: Total screw up. Thought I was on the lower path, and came off at a parallel attack point. Messed around a bit, then found my actual attack point. Then didn't have the confidence to descend, before I fannied about a bit and finally did it. Really poor.
The last three controls were fine, but the early course was so, so poorly planned. Physically I was slow but managing to keep turning over, so not too bad.
