Welcome back Speedy - I saw on FB that life has been throwing plenty of stuff at you, so good to hear that you're still getting some good mileage in.
Sounds as though you had better weather than most of us GM - it was pouring down here this morning.
Good runs today from Leslie, PMJ and OO
I was also XC racing yesterday - the club is back in Div 1 in the Surrey League so there were plenty of quick chaps around. The course itself was bone dry and more like a trail run than XC, so most people ran it in road shoes rather than spikes. I felt pretty ploddy, especially on the first lap, but the overall pace wasn't too bad.
It was a marked contrast this morning following the rain overnight and during the run - I met up with a mate and younger Lorenzito came along as well. 10 miles in total to take me up to a rather paltry 38 for the week after a busy few days.
Have signed up for the Country to Capital Ultra in the middle of January - 45 miles or so from Wendover down to Little Venice. It was my first ever ultra a few years back so hoping to pace it a bit better than I did then!
