Led the race for 5 miles only to miss out in the final .4 mile climb but I couldn’t have done much more.
I needed to snap out of my post London funk and the Trunce is always a good evening fell race to pop along to.
4 months of training, a good bump in mileage and some excellent race results in build up but on the big day a race of two halves and a big disappointment crossing the line in the end.
Joint 3rd place and a run that went pretty much to my best hopes, and Canalathon 50k turned out to be one of my best races in a long time.
Time to head back to the cliffs and bogs of Devon for another punishing crack at the mighty Grizzly race.
I’ve had my eye on Canalathon for a couple of years but it’s always been passed over in favour of a bigger goal close to the date but this time I’m going to take on the 50k before London.
A “comeback” race in as much as I felt reasonably close to fitness and wanted to double check whether I was right or painfully wrong ..
First race back since my fall in February – a local fell race and since I just passed my driving test I took myself along for a leg stretch!
Had two things on the radar this week – the culmination of my 100 day run streak then for day 101, the Millennium Way Ultra.
Dreadful. My performance and result on the day, not the race itself – that was a classic fell challenge with a brutal climb and great organisation.
