Progressing down from 3:30's -> 3:15's over the 4 reps post nationals. Purpose was to not merk ourselves. Kept it controlled and felt pretty good with the boys. Stopped just as the heavy legs started to kick in but never felt like I was having to dig deep.
Good session. Almost time to start hitting the track up again, canne wait. That said, these sessions are definitely ticking a box I've previously struggled to tick. Good stuff.

Wet, muddy, snowing, lovely. Probably my best race of the season but I don't know how much that really says! Certainly closest to Jack I've been (minute behind) so was happy with that. Some great running from the boys meant I was bringing up the rear team wise so was good to keep the legs moving. Finished pretty strongly too with a 2:36/km last 220m. Tidy. Managed to dip Max on the line too.
Started fairly cautiously, not really feeling particularly good but definitely grew into the race. Tucked in and worked really well with a Shettleston runner, slowly trying to chase down the stragglers from the front group. Managed to finally make contact with the back of the Haries pack right at the end. Cool to have all 6 of us within a minute.
Shame the season is ending when it is, I feel like I was just beginning to find my flow again. Still, some good work been done and plenty more to come. Great from the boys to finish second team - everyone fully firing what could have been.... Still, really buzzed with that team result. Last XC before the team disbands a bit. Best Haries result (for the men) in over 50 years! Shows the depth we have.
