Great Weston 5

dood Wet as usual, but pleasantly warm. Started quite slow this time and took the course steady. Lots more hills in the middle that I remembered and quite muddy / slippy in the 'bottom field'. Don't forget the hill had to back off at the end for fear of passing out - and I only had 1 beer the night before, must be taking this marathon training seriously.....

OxfordTristan First race back after 6 months out with injury so really unsure of the outcome. Seeing it as preperation before a bigger race in 2 weeks.
This was a very very hard race, extremely hilly, with winning times two minutes down on last year due to the amount of mud in the off-road par of the race. So although i would have been annoyed with 35 minutes before the race, due to the bad conditions i guess 35 is OK. Has given me more confidence ahead of the big 10K in Oxford in 2 weeks.

Slowly But Shirley Again slow (always am these days!!) but my excuse this time is that I did a 20-mile training run on Saturday, just 2 days before this race - just chuffed to be able to still do this one in under an hour after that!!  Jogged around with another friend who hadn't raced for a year and we allowed ourselves licence to walk up a few of those hills!!
Lovely run though - very picturesque. MK Lakeside Runners 43:59 43:59 56:17 44.19
