First RP today after a working go to warm up (after several failed attempts on Saturday).
Si dH - Lead RP - 05/Jun/12 with Neil Furniss

Hard but after a few goes I think I should get it quickly when I go back fresh. Did it in two halves twice but was just too tired to link it all together towards the end of the day.
Si dH - Lead dog - 02/Jun/12 with Dan H

Felt desperate until we refined the start moves. There aren't many places to shake out, so it's very sustained pretty much the whole way. It will go with immaculate footwork and no hesitation!
