Lovely day on the tops but didn't enjoy it as much as yesterday. Too much of an eyeballs out blast for me. Legs, maybe more the lungs actually, found very wanting up some of the steep hills.
That said, enjoyed the planning, and certainly on reflection wasn't short on mistakes, more on a couple of the route choices than anything else though.
Made the mistake of looking well down behind me as I left 4 and could already see DonP, having started 6 minutes behind, heading for 3 at a rate of knots that I could never hope to match. Glad he didn't actually catch and overtake me until late on the long leg between 12 and 13.
Significant poor route choices 2-3 (went low), 4-5 (too far round), and missed 6, turning left instead of right in the small crags, then misread the out of bounds, giving it far too wide a berth, on the long leg, allowing DonP to go past.
Disappointed to be a little further off the pace than I would have liked but a really good shake out that demonstrated pretty well where I am relative fitness/speed wise. Pleased to keep up with DonP over the last bit but seriously hanging on.
Garmin and Routegadget seem to indicate I ran somewhat further than many others..need to analyse that a bit more to see why / where but more likely than not those route choices. An extra 500m distance and 50m up is very surprising though - and normally I would believe my garmin based on recent accuracies.
