A Surrey Slog - Holmbury Hill trail half marathon Took it fairly steady for the first 30 remembering last years big bonk on the last climb, but still managed to get a big nosebleed at 3 miles, had one guy just ahead of me and another guy quite far ahead who'd gotten a lead from the start. Got to the drinks point at 6 miles in 2nd and was thinking that the leader was obviously quite strong and might have it in the bag but on the next descent I realised I was gaining and he was looking back a lot so the game was on. Slowly reeled him in and went past on the next climb, didn't really want to push too hard as I was still nervous about the last climb but also didn't want to give him some hope so just went for it. Kicked down from the monument and ground out the last climb much better than last year, even feeling pretty good to finish so ended up with a healthy win. Over 7 minutes faster than last year so very happy with that.
Makes me think its strange that I wasn't stronger in JWOC long but I suppose its just a different ball game.

Three efforts on the regular Box Hill loop twice round (top of field - top, bottom of steps - top of steep bit, Brockham lane junction - top of field), pretty nice session. Surprised to see negative splits, maybe wasn't warmed up enough. So surprised with the split of the 4th rep I got a massive nosebleed.
