I really enjoyed this.
I started off ok, not fast but safe. I didn't look inside the control circle for the 1st 4. Just ran into the courtyards and saw them.
Didn't have any recent sprint runs to get myself to plan ahead and fell into the trap at #5. I hit 2 deadends before coming back on myself and going around to the north.
I flowed from there for the rest of the northern estate section although my route choice for #14 was too slow. Saw James Williams(minute man) coming out of #15 and picked it up. I ran under the first bridge to #18 and nearly half way across the water before I realised I'd gone too far.
Still no worries until I hit #20 before #19. STUPID!!!
I was worrying about others than myself as usual.....
Got back into it from there except for the route choice to #26. I couldn't make the map fit with the skate park and lost 30 secs.
I felt really strong in this race and was never in fatigue, just a shame about the nav....
