Good to OK run
Started to get very scrappy in the circle at several controls towards the end.
Left knee held out, was a bit worried as it's been very painful / uncomfortable over night last few nights, also legs had absolutely nothing at the end of yesterday's training.
Running tempo (Trail) 43:05 8.17 km (5:16 / km) +312m4:26 / km ahr:125 max:135 shoes: Wave Ascend 8 Purple - 2
Brantingham Top Stile - out in 21:51 - not too shabby! Hopeful for a 42:30 finish but would mean gaining on the return so well disappointed (initially) with 43:05 - a loss of 23 seconds on the return :( but.... still fastest time on this route since last September (which I'm quite surprised at!).
Went out at a good pace but felt like it was hard work, no "flow" and felt like I'd done enough on the return to at least get a maintain....hmmmm.....as someone would say!
