SOL 3 in Linn of Tummel and Clunie.
An area that hasn't been used for 10 years since the bracken is too rough. The 9.8k 570m course distance looked ominous too.
Started off easy as I thought it could end up a bit of an epic
1 was uphill in heather. Got it cleanly.
2 around to this to save the legs
3-4 opened up the throttle as it was downhill.
5 little high in the circle ~10s lost from not reading the map
6 decided to stay low as up was a long way around. We'll see what the splits says later!
7-9 was easy enough. The open mountain was heathery and tough going.
10 into the forest which it turns out was beautiful! nice running, but steep. Just watched my height.
12 slightly high again, bit more though ~15s
13 went right to ensure I would see it
16 here my legs started to hurt. My line was completely due to runnability. Kept moving though up the hill.
17 more pain, saw Regina when i was contouring and gave her a wave as she was going straight up the hill.
18-20 was just nice oing
21 careful under the boulders
24 -25 were fine
26 was a bit firther along than i had expected but no lost time
27 I left 26 quite high for some reason but it probably wasn't bas as my legs wouldn't have liked any more climb
28 got to run along a path!
29-finish just trying to suffer my way to the end.
Pretty happy with the Result
. Just do that again next weekend and we'll be set.
