Edinburgh City Race,
Cold at the start, otherwise not really sure how I was feeling. Got going though, and started alright, but a lot slower than James on number 1, for no real reason. Also had a miss on two, turned early, went into some olive green, backtracked, and went around, probably 20s or so.
Generally the race went reasonably well, and I was planning ahead well, but had a few issues. Took a worse route to 8, but it was worsened by the gatebeing locked and me having to climb a bigger gate than I've climbed in a long time. ~20-30s. Another mistake on 13, hitting an uncrossable wall. which just shouldn't be happening. ~15s. Number 16 as well I went up some small steps which turned out to be a dead end, bad loss, ~20-30s. To 27, in the really detailed area I found it hard to read, and took a small path slightly to early, and ended up looking down at it, and having to go around, ~15-20s. 28 I also lost a little concentration and turned a little early, but realised. 10s or so. Not sure about route to 32 either, the others went up, but I went down, was tiring on that uphill as well, had to work through.

Overall I thought it was better than it was in hindsight. More misses than I thought, but generally decent navigation. I was slow around the course, regularly just behind the others, but that would be refelective of the last two months. I do look forward to getting some more speed stuff in and getting a bit faster.

Will do some comparisons to last year, maybe tomorrow.
