UKOL Sheffield City Centre
tough - warm / hilly!
A bit of anal. to do ** - mainly Route Choices....need 2d ReRun so later's....
S-#1 good 1st leg with multiple R.C.'s ....deffo got this wrong as had pre-decided how I was going to cross the oob road and didn't way up other options.
Same question really - how much time gained on good R.C. would have been lost trying to work it out?
Call it 40 seconds - 2d ReRun=110 metres lost / about 40 seconds! - same as splits loss to SW and MB!
#1-#2 didn't cut the gap across the church, no significant loss or gain.
#3-#4 L. or R. - went R. not convinced! 37s to SW / 13s to MB (L. 90 metres shorter / 25s)
#9-#10 ....20 seconds (QuickRoute) checking direction out of #9 - couldn't get compass needle to settle! v.disconcerting! ....18s to SW / 10s to MB
11-#12 swayed by pre-race final details and crossed through tunnel to NW. out of #11 on way to #12 not even registering a better way across the road to SE. and a better route :(
my route +90m on alternative / 25s lost - 36s to SW / 22s to MB
#14-#15 L. or R. - went R. +25m - lost 18s to SW / 9s to MB
#15-#16 L. or R. - went R. nothing in it - winner! +17s gain to SW / +12s gain to MB - just needed (alot) more legs like this! ;)
#16-#17 slight hesitation before steps onto upper level, couldn't quite make the map fit! +29s gain to SW / +8s gain to MB
#17-#18 didn't use the tunnel, ran around E. of steps - had registered it in my head as not to be used, obv. now (hindsight) would have saved a few seconds. +16s gain to SW / +3s gain to MB
Verdict : in "errors" - 2:29 loss to SW and 1:02 gain (nett loss 1:27)
1:34 loss to MB and 23s gain (nett loss 1:11)QuickRoute
