A beautiful day at Scott's Ferry on the ...Rangitikei Riviera? ...the Costa del Bulls? Quite a cool course nicely using a new (to me) small block of forest. Apparent right from the start I didn't really have my fast legs with me so really just cruised around which might have helped keep things relatively clean. 3 lapses - #4 hit the green belt a bit south of the control, but given I crossed without noticing a track mid-leg that I was going to use a bend of to check my direction, did pretty well to only end up one re-entrant off; #8, drifted far enough off bearing I ended up closer to 9, too distracted by other similar-paced runners around me at that point I think; #14 sort of lost map contact soon after crossing the main track, so even though I never really went astray, for too long had little idea of how far along the leg I was - plenty of contour detail along the leg but not really any clear unique feature to say you are here. Probably a few other legs that I lost a bit of time just not being confident, even though I was actually spot-on - that kind of run.
StatNav April update:
5735 points (no change... no ranking events attended, so no surprise!)
160th overall (up 32)
11th M45 (no change)
I guess most of the overall movement is people who haven't done much since Oceania/Masters last year dropping off the list. Unfortunately this includes Bozzy, so either he needs to start doing some more races (QB's coming up!) or I need to find another target to chase down ;-)
