Trail/terrain running race 22:55 4.35 km (5:16 / km) +473m3:25 / km ahr:173 max:180
GG Alva uphill test run 3.
Cool, cloudy, zero visibility higher up.
Disappointed not to equal or better last attempt, but have a few possible factors-
Tired after test races last weekend and orienteering session on Wednesday.
Fish and chips and pub last night.
Slightly wet underfoot.
Slight headwind instead of tailwind on sectors 4 and 5.
Had to open 1 more gate than last time (3 instead of 2).
Less motivated than last attempt (was considering jacking it in this morning).
Probably a combination of these things rather than any one in particular.
Heart rate very high relative to previous attempts.
Still a very good training and not too concerned.
