Nicely done Ric.
Dean - I'm not surprised that session felt hard
Rest day to day (just as well with the weather). I did an 8.5m hilly run last night after the drive back from the legs and my legs felt totally mashed. Only 30 miles total for the week, but a lot of climbing (and descending!), long hard walks, and two fell-races in 5 days so not too surprising. Hoping for a bit of a miraculous recovery as I'm also racing tomorrow. Just a 5M local trail race, so time not important, but no doubt a few local rivals to try and beat!
The first placed lady at Loughrigg last week was the 16 year-old daughter of a local Tring runner, Nigel Bunn, who I spoke to before the race. It was her first senior fell race and she beat me by a minute even though she only has a 20 min parkrun to her name! Her dad beat me by 2 mins, despite me being well in front at the half way point!! Both pretty good descenders!
