Ring of Steall Skyrace, 3rd.
Bit concerned I would be out of my depth with the distance, climb and ruggedness of this route and my main goal was to avoid getting injured. I climbed really well and kept it pretty relaxed for the first half, losing lots of time on the descents but gaining a lot of positions in the second half to move from 10th at Glen Nevis to 3rd at the finish. Happy with that and actually really enjoyed it. My legs are broken now but is it truly a race if your heart rate doesn't go over 166?

Inc. (not quite) Mona fartlek. Missed out one of the 1 minute reps by accident.. Still worked hard. 2 x 90s, 3 x 60s, 4 x 30s, 4 x 15s with equal recovery. 18 mins - 5.7km - 3.10 min/km. I quite like the idea of keeping the recoveries honest but it is tough going.
