FRAs Leg 1

Not a bad performance on first to come back in 6th. Happy with how I paced it, but even happier that there was at least 3/4km of heather and bracket to run through. The orienteering background allowed me to get over and through the heather easily while some others had trouble with it, allowing me to gain some time on the leaders and escape the group behind.

Was a little annoyed as I thought I had missed a control in the very later part of the race and so slowed down a little but always in touch with the front group. Finally realised when I came to the last control but wasn't close enough to gain any more places. Sprinted to the finish as fast as I could though to try and make up ground.

Admittedly forgot that after I had punched the finish control, I would also need to tag my teammates so they could set off on their leg. So stopping to rest for a second or two at the finish probably didn't help too much.

Overall the team did OK, coming in a technical 8th, but an actual 10th position after a few dsq's, which were up to interpretation.

Good day out but next year, if we have Sasha and Hamish in the team, it's a top 3 ;)

Well boys...That fucking hurt! A decent one today at the Peatlands Skyline. Set off strong with Tinhio and Tam, pushing each other up the early tough climbs (Turnhouse, Scoldlaw). We were pushing a good pace and was having fun doing so. Although the hills gave a nice escape from the running and allowed me to walk a little (a lot!!!), I was really enjoying the parts of the run where its levelled out and I could let my legs free.
But then I got to the end of drove road, above 14km, and the cramping began. All muscles in both legs were cramping up, especially my left calve and my right hamstring. Managed to stem off any severe pain by gubbing some of my water and stretching it out. Although the returning side of the Pentlands was riddled with cramp, I had so much fun.
Good job all round from the guys doing it.
