IMRA Glasnamullen

I took it easy last year so I thought it'd be nice and easy to beat my previous time. I went out hard enough and tried to hang on but I seemed to be quite far down. I was alright up the road and kept my momentum well, feeling strong. Out in the open the short descent was nice though I got a bit stuck on the single track behind some guy who didn't want to get wet feet. Crossed the river where he eventually succumbed to the inevitable, and passed him out. Started on the climb to the Wicklow way strongly but my collapse was not long in coming. At some point my legs just gave up and there was no more running in them. Walked a good bit then with a few bits of running until the WW. Felt surprisingly good once it was flat and picked it up. I decided I would keep the running motion up to the summit even if it was slower than walking. I succeeded until about halfway between the two fences. Walked to the second fence and ran the rest.

Had a little suffer along the top and then got into the flow of the descent. Passed out lots of people, maybe 20 in total? I'm not sure. It was really fun and the legs felt good. The little bits of uphill nearly killed me. I pushed up white hill really well but along by the forest I had a bad time. No one passed me but I lost ground on people in front. The rocky part by the forest was where I got the most positions. The last climb then was excruciating. Again somehow managed to keep my place and actually got away from those behind me. Gained one more place by getting a sweet jump over the fence and just hung on down the road. There was a big group in front of me but I couldn't get to them.

Happy with my recovery ability, still not too happy with the steep hill ability though it was a bit better. Running hard in Donadea yesterday doesn't help and I need to remember that as it is easy to get negative and thus more tired.

First summer series of the year. It rained.
I really enjoyed it though. I do like a bit of flat forest and pushing through a few small tress gives me a bit of enjoyment. Focused on attacking the controls in the circle, not reducing the speed much at all. It went pretty well and was really confidence boosting. AP reckons I lost 9 seconds which seems fair to me, though I might be slightly more critical.

Walk with Gina on Montserrat. Beautiful day and we had a great time just randomising about on the hill in a general upward direction. Eventually reached a point where no further progress was possible without ropes so we took in the fantastic views and returned. Great day. GPS data is from Gina and it's pretty bad.
