Yes Rhys I know, but enjoying running and will be taking next week easier.
Close 2nd to Simon Harding. Top 4 were running together (Simon Coldrick and James Logie being the others), I pulled away towards the end but not by enough to overcome the 2min start interval. Took 30mins to get going but once into the rougher ground was feeling good. Fairly simple course today, quite a nice day West of Kinder, but was fogged in, icey and windy over on Brown Knoll.

North Stands. Wednesday, Hallam, Utd this year.
First time guts have given up on me mid-run in a short while. 50s jobbie.
On the gentle downs I felt pretty good but was unable to push on. Flats were OK when I had company but on my own was again finding it difficult to get above a good cruise.

Tankersley NightO. Trains with Matt. Popped out at or near enough to the feature more often than not so maybe something there?
Should have packed proper headtorch. More than I expected but still trundling along OK. Found some man-eating brambles in places.
Slightly swollen toes from yesterday, but I'd expect nothing less from 4h in cold, wet O shoes.
Keen to push on with developing a bit more speed but wary of pushing too hard this week and aware of need to maintain/build on long distance stamina.
Hopefully I can give Simon Harding a good race at the Kinder Trail this weekend - maybe I'll pick the correct route (clockwise/Anticlockwise) this year. There is a first time for everything...
