Braid Hills XC
Looking forward to this. 5th time ive race but 1st time in 4 years.
Not wanting to set off too fast I started far back and got boxed in. I didn't panic and just maintained a nice pace but Mark had a 10s lead by the top of 1st hill. Picked a few offf on the down and the back straight but the lead increased to 20s by the end of the 1st lap.
I felt good and with less people in the way up the second hill I was able to cut the lead to 10s. Lots of people cheering us on and willing for me to catch up but could only gain a few seconds here and there on the down and flat. Final wood section to go and suddenly the lead was only 5s. Final 200m to go and the sprint was on. I needed to give 100% and luckily i found a good line to not get held up by an oblivious Pat G who wasn't aware of the train that was about to hit him which held up Mark a tad. This picture doesn't tell the full story.

WASP. Started easier so had more energy for MFD but it was very slippy in my worn out inov8s and i was still very slow.

S & C 40:00 
Went along to an ESOC S&C circuit session at Spylaw Park.
Drills then 3 x (30s Sprint + 9 x 30s)
One of the stations was hula hooping and I was embarrassingly bad the first rep but managed to get the hang of it by the end.
Was better than I expected with all the equipment you need for a decent session. Some stations in the foyer and the rest on the grass which was fairly slippy. Will try to go along to future sessions, they seem to be every 3 weeks.

This week it was an interval session on the meadows: 12 x ~400m [60s]
A really fast lad called Tom was also there. He was doing the reps in 60-65s wheres i was closer to 70. I chose to run off his recoveries as this made sure I pushed harder albeit losing some recovery. Nicely tired by the end.
