Totley Moor fell race, 3rd place.
Really wasn't sure what to expect, but this was much better than I thought. Started off very steady round the cricket pitch, and exited the field somewhere in the 20s. But I knew it was a long climb and I worked my way through the field to be in 8th by the top. Got another place contouring round before the climb to the trig, and another two places on the climb itself. By this point the eventual winner already had a good lead, so I set about chasing the next three people who were close together.
Got into 4th place just before the decent through Blacka, and actually managed to descend quite well and hold the gap to 2nd and 3rd. It was status quo up the last climb, but then on the final downhill I really pushed on the road section and got into 3rd as we entered the field and held on round the cricket pitch. Couldn't quite catch a very strong running Aiden in 2nd.
I'm going to pay for this in my quads and calves tomorrow.

To and from Stanedge Pole with Paul. Honest enough pace on the way out, pushed a little harder on the hills. Paul picked the pace up through the parks at the end. First long run since the marathon, felt fine, but tiring a little towards the end.
