Running race 1:11:56  9.41 mi (7:39 / mi)
Snowdon race - 14th. Not a great run, I have doubts in my mind whether I pushed it all out but I certainly ticked the "this hurts and I am suffering box." Set out hard (having felt that maybe I started off too slowly last weekend) and tried to hang onto Joe Symond's coat tails for as long as possible - which lasted until we got onto the climb off the road.
Largely consolidated my position on the first 1/3 of the climb but steadily got passed on the last 2/3rds. Rallied a little just before the summit and had an ok descent but not as fast as last year. Had a bit of tussle with Carl but he proved too smooth for me and slowly broke away.
Frustrating - just not quite in form at the moment and maybe trying a little too hard as a consequence making every effort seem harder than it needs to be. However, keen to push on from this and stick in some solid and consecutive weeks training and turn a corner for Borrowdale. Character building.
Great race as ever and nice to get some personal support from my parents, Clare, Charlie and Charlie Daniel's birthday group. Orienteering got lots of positive mentions at prize giving with fantastic races from Murray and Tessa.
