Scottish Relays, Roseisle.
Age class handicap, last leg after Pete Molloy and Dixie. Set off in the lead but no idea how big a lead, tried to keep it fairly controlled and steady - not sure my legs were up to more than steady anyway. A bit scrappy but no major time losses.
And it turned out I had a twelve (!) minute lead at the start and still a twelve minute lead at the end, so that was nice :)

Round the field and to the start, calf seemed okay Friday pm and no warning twinges on the warm up. Good.

Scottish Champs, Achagour.
M50L, 2nd place (behind Charlie 62:43)
Cautious off the start in the furrowed forest, knew it was vague and still a bit wary of my calf. But warmed up into it and once we were out in the rough tough marshy terrain I was strong, just missing a bit of zip in my legs.
Generally a bit scrappy, hesitant at #1, did some extra distance early in the leg to #3, wobbled at #5 and #6, found the marsh to #9 tough and dithered one hill too early (confused by gorse mapped as stripes), sloppy direction to the final control drifting left and losing 45secs or so. Maybe 2-3mins could be found - had a good split on the long leg but in general not moving quite as well as Charlie or Jase. So no howlers and a decent result, fitness getting there but hoping to find a bit more yet...
Charlie 62, Martin 64:51, Jase 65:05 (for the M45 win), Ifor 65:39. Fraser 66, DaveR 67, Tim G 68.
And Charlie runs for an English club whereas I run for a Scottish club, so I got to take the Scottish Championship trophy home :)

No Jase or Lewis for reps this week and my right calf a bit tweaky so in the end decided session not wise. Ran round Leckie, steady and a bit quicker on the descent. Good move not to do a session as now my calf is very very tight....
