hello Baldie! I was wondering where you'd got to!? Great to see you back. Have you seen these pics? http://www.flickr.com/photos/orionflickr/sets/72157642051440885/ which don't really do the mud justice and make the course look flat as a pancake :-/ Are you pleased with your time? I wasn't initially (around 1.52) but I realised after that all the usual rules about 10 mile times are out of the window, and I actually won the club handicap (as this is also a handicap for us)-- which I'm well chuffed about. Are you doing the Orion 15 in a couple of weeks? I'll be marshalling, but not running this one, the cut off time's a bit hardcore for me.
LSH- I'm an Orion, I think Baldie's a Serpentine? I LOVE the mud, can't get enough
Swittle, SB- thanks for the kind words
Me- back to the hills, nice n pacey tonight. 8 reps
DD- exciting times... hope s/he arrives close to the due date, keep us updated
Me- did our club 10 mile cross country race today, The Orion Mercury. Apparently the forest is the muddiest it's been for this race in about 35 years. And no one told me about the bloody hills! They don;t stop and looking at my Garmin I gained 800 feet.. the hills were mental anyway.. Cue loads of sliding down hills, losing shoes, covered in mud from head to toe. A great sunny day and a beautiful route though, not to mention the hardest 10 miler I've every done...
