Lancaster Uni - Race 1
Scrappy start which was a recurring theme :(
#1 minor hesitancy at control in the circle
#5 faffed a bit in the inside corridors (mapped as canopies) to the SE of the control
#11 Grrrrrr at self - chose the route then failed to execute it :( biggest time loss ... circa 50 metres / 15 seconds plus?
#12 On second look there was a route choice to the S. out of #11 - I went N.....not sure it's any quicker as there are more twists and turns! - would need to measure them to be sure!
#13 missed the turn S. out of #12 and continued W. then S. around the W. building.... minor!

CoH 3,000 metre Track - "B" Race
STRONG wind down the home straight so set sights on working very hard (harder than I'm fit enough for really!) on tucking in and sheltering on the lead group - well, the biggest group after no.1 and no.2 foolishly decided to go it alone into the wind!
Made several efforts - most unlike me(!) to surge back to the group as they started to edge away on several occasions, and, to be honest, it's not the way I'd ordinarily choose to run an 11:30 3k (ok - it was actually 11:31) but needs must!
Not disappointed with that given the STRONG (did I mention it was VERY windy?!) blustery conditions on the home straight - km splits tell the tale...
3:43 / 3:50 (7:33) / 3:59 (11:32) - obv. rounded down to 11:31 :)
Didn't really feel I let up until about 2 to go, and only really lost the group with one to go.
A bit battered now including L.Groin - felt it pulling after around 2km - bit sore now so will need to look after that! :(

That was hard work. Strong blustery wind, mainly against going out so trail wind on return.... good job!
Worked hard but felt nowhere near as good as Wednesday so very surprised to hit 19:29
