Oxpecker day 1.
Entered this almost 2 years ago. Grateful it could finally happen.
Very undertrained so started off very conservatively. We were worried being in A batch but it wasn't an issue with lots of peeps slower than us. The big climb up to 10km was rough. Nice cruise down to the 2nd water table at 16km then a bit of a slog into the finish.
Legs held up nicely. Only issue of the day was getting a piece of wire straight through the bottom of my shoe and into my foot at about 12km. Managed to pull it out easily and it didn't leave much damage.
Chilled afternoon with Nottingham road brewery there, a nap and loads of free snacks.
