I'm in a similar situation - I think I've found the optimal start and the optimal finish, but I'm 17 minutes too long in the middle (the most optimal Hainault Loop doesn't get me back to HSK in time for the Olympia train).

You've basically got a few options -

1. rejig the stuff in the middle to make it faster - there's probably hundreds of ways to order the middle, maybe you've missed one
2. wait until an extra Olympia service day
3. use a sub-optimal start finish - losing a few mins at the start but gaining twenty later is still a massive win
4. some combination of the above

I didn't think there were any special Olympia days anymore?

Not been keeping an eye on them, maybe not.
