BUCS Individual on Ilkley Moor. I started 4 mins ahead of Kit Grierson, but wasn't aware of this (probably should have been!). He caught me up after my dreadful error on #5 and then we ran the rest of the race together. I lost a bit of time on #3 as I was being too cautious and could have simply looked up and used the fence corner and position myself (0:15). #5 was one of the worst errors; came across the stream too low and didn't know, took a long time to realise and even then was going very slowly (1:40). #10, happy with my route choice, take the high route and then dropping down between 19 and 20 and following the path through the boulder field, but then wasted (2:30) inside the control circle as I hadn't looked closely enough at the detail! #17 I unnecessarily returned to the path and therefore wasted about (0:30) on going straight.
Total time wasted ~4:55. Thinking back I also feel that I never truly pushed myself, perhaps I could have run a little faster I'm not sure...
