Running race (Waseley Wobbler) 55:17  13.5 km (4:06 / km) +320m 3:40 / km
Despite being a race where every finisher got a medal it was actually testing.
2nd. Would have been 3rd but Jarlath got lost in the last mile.
I thought it was fairly swift start, showed some weakness for a bit around mile 2 (bottoming out in 7th) then managed a consistent pace to mile 5. Pushed on here to get into fourth and held a higher pace to the finish passing third on the last steep climb.
First run for Mercia. Wanted to be forced to run at a good pace for an hour as I haven’t done that for a long time. Pleased with my sustained effort over the last three miles. Chuffing slow with prize giving.
