SYO Event at Rivelin. I did go quite hard but I don't know if I can put intensity 5, because I made a lot of wobbles, and also the map necessitated doing quite a bit of climbing up sheer slopes on my hands and knees.
I really enjoyed this, actually. Rivelin is a pretty narrow map, so there was a lot of running on tracks, but I don't think it detracted from the course. I started late and was in a hurry to get going, probably should have given Pete Tryner more time because I caught him at #2 and we spent most of the course together (barring a section between 2 and 5).
#2 was a bit of a puzzle, I was lucky to see people at the control because the wall didn't really exist. Had a wobble at #5 after I went in unsure from the track and turned right instead of left. Another large wobble at #9 when the pit, which was mapped on the moor right on the edge of the woods, was actually about 30m away from the woods. A fairly big error on #11 when I wasn't careful about aiming off on the slope and wasn't sure which rocks I'd come down onto.
The rest of the course was pretty good, I felt like I made sensible decisions, but I definitely need to make sure that's the norm not the exception. I wore my ankle braces today and they were OK except that all four or my laces (shoes and braces) came undone at some point! Forgot my HR strap.
