Trail running race 33:17  6.14 km (5:25 / km) +207m 4:38 / km
Cheyne hill race.
I would describe the race as undulating so not the typical hill race with one uphill and one downhill, it had 3 main uphill sections - but nothing too steep or sustained- (and thus 3 downhill sections). We started by going up for about a mile and I was feeling good, about 20/30 meters behind Veronique and the second lady but they dropped me as soon as we started going downhill. I was being careful on the downhills but to be honest even if I had wanted to push on them, I don't think I could have gone faster - I'm no use at downhill. But on the plus side, I took my revenge on Bob on the last uphill and dropped him (ah, who is the road runner now!). So yeah, really enjoyed the uphills and felt good on them. Finished 3rd lady, but I'm not feeling tired or achy from the race (for now anyway) so I don't expect it'll take too long to recover. The course had a lot of roots, rocks and puddles so it was great off road practice too.
