Lovely sunny autumnal weather for the MLS Windmill Hill event today. I haven't run for a month as I was giving my injuries some recovery but when the second lockdown was announced I signed up. Somehow I was fastest on the Short Green course but my navigation was woeful at times (~8 mins lost (15-20% of total time)) and running fitness was shockingly low. Must get out at least once a week now to prevent my O memory depleting.

My run was really poor. I spent ages running round in circles looking for a control which I was very close to. Quite a lot of climb so fitness played a part. Not enjoying the high bracken and nettles at the moment. Still a lovely day out though.

Got something to say?
