Nice forest. Fairly up for this but still lacking in sleep (woken at 6 to the sound of Laurence vomiting all over the campervan. Nice. A big clean up job).
Can't find my map (so no pretty doma) but there is routegadget:http://routegadget.fvo.org.uk/rg2/index.php#35
Very easy to use new version - even for a technophobe like me. From what I recall: 3 was tough and uphill. Felt coughy and unfit, 5 took a shite route through some shite. 7, ditto. Straight through green. Nice. 8 I was too far left, and knew I was, but there was too many fallen trees the way I wanted to go. 9 tried to cut a corner - windbliw - big mistake. 11 took a really roundabout route as I didn't want to go in the forest. It looked a little rough. But in the end I had to head in anyway, so should have stopped trying to find a less shitty route and got on with it. 13, but confused. Thought it would be on the outside corner from the way the circle was on the map. 14 slow, 15 seemed much lower than I thought it was going to be - 45secs + here. 17 poor route. 18 too far right. Way to far right. 1 min. Rest fine. I was going well in the forest but slowed significantly in the bracken. Think it's a combination of mistakes and lack of fitness in the rougher underfoot stuff. Maybe the bracken tracked up (I'll keep telling myself this - much easier than admitting a lack of fitness and actually going training!). Loved it regardless. Lovely weather too.
