Have to agree with Lit, David.

While you want to publicise yourself, using the word elite is a bit misleading. To most runners who compete, elite conjures images of national or even international level standard!

I'd either make it clear that's a specific club defined term, or take it out to be honest.

Up to you though, and good luck either way.

Elite level sounds impressive.

Tell me more.

Not sure I can remember a blocker as such. More so their cousin, the types who try and "use you" by staying super close.

They normally take a right bit of shifting, either going side to side, slowing or surging.

Obviously a lot different to the people I've hitched a ride from over the years. Before monstering late on

Chuckled Phil. I bet that guy didn't even know you were there

But if you think the start is a "steepish", I'm not surprised you think there are 100s of hills in there

This is obviously one for the Irony police though, as right now, to me, a "hill" in a race is anything that isn't pancake flat.  Sounds a good effort to get round when not fancying it.

Good "proper" XCing to a few others on here too. I certainly wouldn't fancy just combing out laps of fields. At least "Our" (I still call it our, having done about 2 races in 3 years) races (bar Datchet) have great variety.

 

13 at 6.53 job today. Super cold that early, but went well. Sniffing a bit. Not sure if it's one of those 10 times a year I sit on the cusp of a cold that never comes, or if it's tied up with the "haven't breathed right for a year" situation.

Either way, after luxuriously doing a 55mile week with no quality post race, I best get back to the track this week

On a less joshy note though Chris, it was just light hearted of course with Reg.

This thread only has a fairly small set of regular contributors, and each plays a good role (ok, just "role" in my case ).  A few big names have dropped out over the years, much missed (and some not so missed...just kidding), and it relies on picking newbies up along the way.

Therefore, it's time for a lurker amnesty....any long time readers want to get involved?

 

On another note, does anyone ever "review" a race on here? Filled out the review on the Hatfield 5, and clicked on "My events" in my settings, but it doesn't bring anything up any more. Failed functionality?

40miles is about 35 too far!

CC, another good race, I never maximised at that distance, but I remember how a couple of seconds can feel the diffo between feeling you've cruised and being monstered!

Plenty of reps there Ric, you're back to pimping again.

But 20 reps for you Simon! That's big. I did 16 once, but they were set at 10k pace, so felt a cruise especially at the start. For you to rampage 20 is impressive

 

F OFF today, due to a work away day, mass of powerpoint presentations job. The Christmas do is also tonight, but i'd long ago decided I really didn't fancy the two together, 20miles away, combined with 100+ from our depot we don't know at all. Possibly should have gone, but I never was a sociable type.

Fun part was a raffle. Unfortunately won a spa day for 2, rather than the VIP Man Utd tickets, or host of electronics! Am trying to swap for the United game, but i'll be lucky!

It's just a bit of a strange, almost beginner esque voyage of discovery of what I can do at the moment. Has been a gentle step up from big mileage weeks, to track, to parkruns, to the 1miler, to tempos, then that 5miler! And the truth is that I've probably got 90-95% of what I ever had!

Just need to consolidate then decide on a step up again, whether it be a 10k, or a MT.

Finishing that 5miler, I felt better than I did after finishing that MT 5K! That was sit down for 10mins material, even logging a 19.06!
