Happy New Year all!
i have had a relapse of manflu so not feeling too clever
had my Christmas Cracker team race last Sat & typed a fair old sized report only for it not to post and disappear grrrrrr
Anyway in summary it was incredibly enjoyable but brutally tough. 8.5 miles across fields, over stiles, along muddy single tracks, through woods and lots of brutal ascents.
Ran in teams of 2 - we clocked 72mins and finished 141st from almost 400 teams. 8 teams from our club entered and we were 3rd club team home.
Carl - I ran 6 20mlrs before Dublin rather than the 2 in the P&D plan. I feel this was a mistake as I didn't feel as strong on race day as I had done 6 weeks prior - feel I underperformed slightly as a result and 3:30 slipped away on the day. I think 6 long runs fatigued me too much.
