Felt more like a heavy training weekend than a race weekend.
I had some shin/knee niggles on Thursday night that somehow were magically cured by 40k of running it seems. Mentally I just could never get into a sustained race mode. I was in the zone for a while in the middle after catching Kit but then lost it on the way back. Often I do struggle in the heat but it didn’t feel like that was the problem this weekend. Lead my gaffle for a short while in the relay but then didn’t actually read the map to 7 or 8 which lost me some seconds. Successfully fought off Adam though in our sprint finish for 3Xth place.
I think a few running races might help harden me up.
Good weekend anyway with good chill.
