Another return to Ward Pound Ridge. Nice open and fast (at least in principle) forest.
Technically a pretty clean run with a minor swing at 2nd and 23rd. Physically clearly limited but this was not surprising after the limited training in the last months and the lingering cold this week didn't help neither.
Was falling off the group constantly but got back when the runability made the race slower (8th) or the group added some minor swings (11th, 15th). Finally got dropped for good in the uphill to 20th and was glad it didn't take long from there to the finish anymore.
Given my limited physical condition I was hoping for some more controls in the greener and trickier area in the (S)E but also very much enjoyed the pleasant open forest.
