A lot of early controls in some fast terrain just made it difficult to plan ahead enough. I'm not sure how much to slow down to read the map vs running faster with more stopping? Fairly on course round the first few but need to pick specific objects to run towards on bearings. One funny area that threw your bearings off but difficult to say what was wrong. Better bearings would have helped on quite a few actually. Did stop to do my shoelaces at one point.
With a map following some new lanes and paths on the far side of the river up Corbett's Dingle to Broseley and across to Benthall Edge. Some windy drizzle and some very cool paths. Didn't realise it was going to be so long.
