Thanks Jeff.

I did it last year and went 1:52:40 and the course measured 20.3kms.

Today I went 1:46:27 but the slightly altered course measured 19.4kms, so not sure if I was faster or not, just about I think?

Also managed to go a$$ over head in the woods with 2kms to go. Cut and bashed my right leg a bit and did some damage to my left fingers and wrist. On the plus side, managed to keep my watch out of harm's way. Laughing

Excellent racing FP. Even if the course was marginally shorter, that's still a quick run ... and you got your double in! Looks like training is coming together.

Bit of a different stroy for me ... my first ever DNF. Crying or Very sad

I seem to have picked up some sort of bug that i didn't know about, but as soon as the race got going i could feel something wasn't right. HR was immediately sky high, legs were just burning up and i just had no power ouput whatsoever. Tried running through it to see if it improved, but it just got worse and worse with every hill.

I was barely walking up the steep hills, firing backwards through the field and starting to get cold. Reached the top of a steep set of steps before the next valley and decided a 10 mile hike on the toughest section of the course wasn't particularly appealing. One of my clubmates' wives was back a field or so, cheering people on, so i trudged back with my tail between my legs, grabbed the keys to their car and went for a sit down before being ferried to the finish to see the guys in.

I was really gutted yesterday but a bit more philosophical today. Gutted because i was in really good form. It was a great race, and a super competitive field this year - loads of fast times, and i know i should've been up there with a nmber of friends from my club and other local clubs. Frustrating!

Still, it's not an injury. SO hopefully a couple of days rest and i can get training again for 'something'. Body just disintegrated all day yesterday and off work today. Energy levels at minus 80, headaches, burning joints, no focus, not eating properly. So something is obviously wrong!

That's how it goes sometimes though ....

Thanks GB, I'm paying for that weekend today. Was meant to be on the turbo at lunch but my shoulder is so sore it's just not worth the misery.

Really sorry to hear about your DNF but you definitely did the right thing. Putting our endurance ego aside for the benefit of our health can be a hard decision to make. Whatever you have, I'm sure it will pass faster die to your decision yesterday.

Rest up and get well mate Cool

Walking the Ridgeway this Easter weekend over 4 days with the Mrs and Oska the Vizla.

While not running, love this route from 2x Race to the Stones and 1x R86.

A bit different with a blooming heavy rucksack tho Shocked
