Padams I only packed the spikes, regretted that when I was shown the course before the start, I would have joined you with the trail shoes. As you say good course, had more to it than I thought. I was 73rd in 30:4x, just held off one of your team mates with a sprint finish. Felt I could have managed a 4th lap at the time, which probably would have suited me. However 10 miles into my run the next day I was glad we only did 3! The top end of Chiltern League is quick so I would say 16th is going well.
CW I suspect now that I have broken through the 2K barrier it will become a minimum expectation, sounds like you might have found that this year?
AW A few club mates of mine were at Andy Reading yesterday & commented on the wind. I ran it last year & it can be pretty brutal around that airfield.
Nice park running Wardi & LD & some great rowing PP
Hope the calf recovers quickly Jools
XC for me yesterday, tougher course than expected though thankfully not too muddy & relatively short. Think it was a reasonable run, never easy to tell. Took me over 2000 miles this year which is a first for me so that was pleasing. Felt it on today's 13 miler!
Pretty sure my clubmate picked up £600 cash for coming 2nd at the cabbage patch 10 this year. He was much happier with that than the few hundred quid's worth of Brooks vouchers he got for winning the Oxford half.
