Running race 29:21 [5] 5.7 km (5:09 / km) +366m 3:54 / km

Creagh Dubh Hill race - great fun!
first time doing this one, cracking games race. Ive missed this sort of thing amongst all these skyraces lately.
Had a shocking start, despite being in what looked like a good position on the line i got stuck behind people and had to peg it out of the field. Proper solid climb though, took loads of folk and was around 10th to the top. Lost a couple on the way down and finished 14th. Coming to accept that as my climbing gets better, the descending needs to follow! as I am now amongst better runners when i get to the top. Took one place back on the flat near the end which was good. Happy enough in a British Champs race. Perhaps slighly foolishly i did the 1500m race afterwards..... did win a tenner though.

Comapedrosa Skyrace- good!
Climbed well, definite noticeable improvement in my climbing recently. Lost time on the descent- probably around 5 places. This was unsuprising as the toe was always going to make me less confident than previously. I purposefully took it easy on the first descent as i knew about the steepness of the next climb. This paid off and i took back all the folk who passed me on the first downhill. fast finish, managed to take back another place. Slight cramps towards the very end, was pretty hot!
