Sound like everyone has been training well with lots of long mileage being recorded. Well done everyone.
Nandy pleased the knee is better. Must be such a relief for you.
Chilli I echo MC thoughts. Please take it easy and don't push yourself to quickly.
My Trail race went well.It was knee deep in mud at parts and the weather was extremely horrible..horizontal rain and very windy.Very challenging conditions indeed.Ha ha. I also slipped so was covered in mud down my left hand side...hehee. Amazed I only slipped the once. One poor guy fell face forward into the loch...he was charging by fast and slipped going part one of the single track bits and kinda just fell right in.....oops he was alright and just got back up and carried on as you do...lol
The only downside of the race was that the distance was wrong..We only ran 13k instead of 15k due to a missing sign at one part of the course...The organizers think this had been removed by someone who has a grievance with the club..shocking really and we all felt a bit cheated at not having run the full 15k. My time for the race was 1.15.53 so not too bad and if I had done the 15k would probably had made it under the 1.30hrs.
Next race for me Sunday 10 mile road race...so wont be any mud at that...ha ha
