Gwent League Brecon Senior Men

Adders Its been coming. Ive waited a long time to say that a Gwent League XC race went really well but now I can finally say it. First Gwent League race since the Brecon fixture 12 months earlier and first bit of racing experience since the operation. 

Confidence was fairly high following decent training, but decided to adopt sensible race tactics in starting off relatively slow so I could use my speed towards the finish. It worked well, as I overhauled a significant portion of the field in the final few hundered metres to finish in the top 50. A great way to boost my confidence in preparation for the Cardiff 10k

Overall race rating - 8/10 Rugby & Northampton AC 33:48 33:48 38:26 69.51
Boycie Funny race - pleased with overall pace level, but started too hard (1st k in 3.20) and so it felt like I was going backwards the whole race... But not so bad, that you were completely spent, so really frustrating as steadily from 3k onwards about 10 or 11 guys came by and I only overtook 2. Normally I spend all races overtaking people from a good start. 15 seconds slower in the 1st k, would've made all the difference I think... You live and learn, 35th for 10k...
