Decent Run. Ran by myself for the whole thing, except passed a couple of people. Was concentrating well too on more of a tricky course than any I've done recently.
I started okay, struggled to get into any sort of rhythm in terms of running. Headed a bit right, so I could come back in to it, but turned out to have a few people around and the spur was very distinctive. Picked it up to 2, an easy and obvious control, but struggled again near the circle and on the way out with so much climb. When I crossed the fence to 3, I could generally run pretty well again. Navigated well in, but read wrong feature off map, and was therefore slightly off. Grand to 4, went right so I could aim off again, saw I was on the spur to the right and hit it. was basically fine through the rest of these short ones except 7, which I recognised would be tough, but I still couldn't pick which crag it was and went high. To 9, I decided it would be easiest to go around and bearing from no.5 as well as use the forest. But when I closed in I didn't know if the gully was above or below, got it right though and was slightly passed. I headed slightly left for 10, as again I spotted nothing obvious to attack from. Got it, mixed it up a bit for the next few through to about 13 or so. Was quite smooth through the next few short ones and felt quite strong still. Fine for the last few along the tracks.
Probably lost about 1min on 3, 1.15 on no.7, 1min on 9, and i guess 30secs at 13 for tying laces but otherwise pretty clean, maybe a few bad decisions on how to navigate in but happy both physically and technically.
