Perfect conditions and my 5th run at this race in 5 years.
Did the 12k course in 50.39 which is 49secs off my best but at last I have reversed a steady decline in times.
I found the ups tough for some reason. Every time I had to run uphill I felt I was grinding to a halt and people were overtaking me. Once recovered I would then retake the same people. I guess I am just lacking some stamina.
I was thinking of doing a 5 miler of 10K next weekend but have decided to do neither as am feeling pretty tired generally the last 10 days and would like to put in a decent performance at Gartmorn in 2 weeks
