SBOC Pembrey Short brown, 7.8km , UKOL Level B.
Lovely but v cold day. Prepped by doing masses of stretching etc on RH hamstrings, / hip/ to avoid calf knotting, all afternoon/evening yesterday. Delighted to say, this worked. Calf - no pain.
Dobs a "mistake" (dry underfoot). but they're my best shoes now, so.....
I loved this course, but I have to admit, that when i picked the map up & saw no 1, of Orange / BOK summer urban park series standard, i smiled. Beaten to no 1 by Gebbett though! :)
Most of course was fine, GG caught me (he was only training, after winning at 10:30pm the night before - he didn't dib the controls) and it was amusing seeing him actually banana on my no 5. He pulled away, but I had a small "tow" for a few minutes.
Red standard leg to no 9, then some nice forest - loved it briefly (esp. no 11 & 12 where i was matching Megan) until I blew up by running too hard on the paths. Lucky to keep my shit together on nos 13, 15 & 16, but I did. Just. Very buggered here, to finish.
I was faster than most (all?) M45 & M50, but only cos they were knackered from the night champs. Or had (conveniently) got older (Quentin , Clive on Blue). Megan put me in my place (45 mins), but that's OK (So did an M18). http://www.sboc.co.uk/2018Results/20180225PCP_UKOL...https://www.strava.com/activities/1426024648
