Gwaelod y Garth, WNL, 60 min Score. Seem to keep missing the races here so very pleased to be able to do this night one. Due to the small area there was a double sided map with two sets of controls on each side, a bit confusing, but it worked. Didn't do any mental pre-planning and just stared on the first set that I saw when i picked up the map, which happened to be the hardest (would have been much easier to start on the easy controls!). Very difficult to work out the best order and where to change over, got it quite well sorted but then realised that I'd missed and control, so had to go and get that and messed up my route. New half way around the third that I wasn't going to clear, but didn't know how quick the easier loops would be, turned out to be much quicker and only ended up missing two controls (which would have been one without the mistake). All going well until the last control when I was in a rush against the clock, ran over a path without seeing it (that I use regularly!) and ended up in a garden, though I must be south, so went north. Relocated at the edge of the map and lost about 2.5 mins on the run to the finish! Good fun and a lovely evening (all done before Ciara showed up).

IW. Could not get moving this morning and then held for ages at both lights on Corbett Road. Lovely morning though, crisp and frosty but no ice and a lovely sun rise.

HFW. A bit more alive than this morning. Again, a lovely evening and it's so nice that it's getting so close to not needing a light a this time. Contemplated a run but remembered that my torch battery was flat - that was was enough for me to talk myself out of it!

IW. No top gear today so just enjoyed it at the sped my legs wanted to go. Even saw the sun peeping above the horizon from Haley Park. Light enough not to need the big light, but two idiot drivers pulled out in front of me in Ton (so maybe I did need it?).

HFW. Nice evening, cool, but good for cycling. Puddle across the TT by Radyr weir has dried up for the first time this year.

MDC runs from John and Sophie's. Good fun but very sloppy, despite there being no rain this week. Lots of soft fields, some brambles, hard tracks and roads. Not feeling strong but able to keep up on hills, not so much on the flat hard tracks though. Really nice evening - not even spoilt by forgetting a change of underwear...
