Wow it was a bit undulating! lots of climbs, wind was really strong at times. Luckily I didn't get cold. After 3 miles I got into a group of 4 and we worked together until about 18K where I pulled away with 1 other runner. I felt like I was running hard the whole way, had some recovery on the downhill. Left side felt sore towards the end.
My nutrition was a bit of a disaster- my running belt rubbed and annoyed me, I was wearing gloves and didn't want to loose concentration and try and get a gel. So I ran to about 24K, at which point I thought I'm starving so I forced a gel down me- Felt better straight away and managed to keep the pace . Had another gel at 28K. In my training runs i will practice with gels and wear the Salomon belt instead.
Pleased with result, it's wear I want to be, great training session. Will take this week pretty easy and do lots of S & C. Im on hols in Ireland so will have plenty of time for training and recovery.
