You boys are speedy on the long runs already!
More XC racing today for me, the last race of the North Midlands League. I finally got to take home the trophies I would have certainly won last year had my mother not died the day before the last race. I informed dad and both of my elderly cats that I would not stand for any such nonsense this year and duly bagged my V35, over all veteran and senior team trophies. I felt like I had a rubbish race compared to last week, but actually ran around 15 - 20 seconds per mile quicker. Same venue, different course. The presentations finally took place 2 hours and 20 minutes after I crossed the finish line, thus robbing me of my planned weights workout. I had to go and see dad and by the time I finally got home it was definitely time for food and a hot bath!
