Run 38:55  9.35 km (4:10 / km) +180m 3:48 / km
shoes: Mudroc 290s
A solo "Braids XC" outing.
Rather muddy, and pissing down for the first lap. Probably should have done more than a 500m jog for a warm-up, but I couldn't be bothered.
Rudely interrupted by some horses on the 2nd lap, so had to stand in a gorse bush for 40 seconds to avoid death by hoof. Paused the watch, but threw me off the rhythm a bit.
Probably means I should say 39:35 for the time, but I'm not gonna.
Relatively happy, I'm sure I would've been quicker if it'd been at the actual race. Will have to wait for next year!
