IW. That secret type of rain again, in that it doesn't look like it's hardly raining at all, but you get wet through. Definitely had enough of it now.

SWOC 1 hour Score, Sugar Loaf West.
Doubt that I'll enjoy many races this year as much as this. Lovely evening to be running, not sunny but clear and mild, the undergrowth was still down and all the trees were a wonderful green, almost magical running through the oak woods. Also a great map and a well planned course.

Chose a route to avoid as much climb as possible, but though it poor when a third of the way around as I didn't seem to have visited many of the controls. Kept at it and was really enjoying the running and being out there, even enjoyed the big climb across the valley. Skipped two controls in the middle and got back 2.5 minutes early, but with each control being worth 10 points and the penalty 20 points a minute it wasn't worth the risk in getting another. No mistakes.
8 PM

Trail run warm up/down 8:37 intensity: (2:00 @1) + (4:00 @2) + (2:37 @3) 1.2 km (7:12 / km) +52m 5:55 / km
shoes: VJ Supra 14

Warm down trot with Will to collect a couple of the most visible controls.
