Liverpool Cross Challenge - 75th
Bad day at the office. Unsurprising given state of the body but still frustrating. Got out fast but still about where I wanted to be. Started feeling very guffy during the first muddy section. Dropped a shit load of places towards the end of the first lap. Very nearly dropped out. Luckily just about managed to compose myself and latch onto a group with Gav Smith and Callum Phillip/Tharme around me. Stuck there for the remainder of the race but just felt like I was bumbling round waiting for the finish to come, no aggression and not at the races. Finished around some solid lads still but a good 40sec-1min down on where I wanted to be.
Need to sort this guffma out. No more hard running until it’s cleared off.
Positives: mentally stronger than my former self - would have 100% dropped out in years gone bye.
