17/18 Ranking Event 11, POM Day 2 long, ME 18.0km (53/70)

A bit scared of this beforehand but tried to remember that I actually have trained for this sort of distance over the Winter and started the race at just a steady pace to be safe. Seemed to survive OK.

A couple of wobbles at 8 and 11 but otherwise a fairly clean race. Mostly straightforward technical challenges made even more simple by me taking it easy.

Really runnable terrain, not sure if I've ever run on anything faster. The elite courses probably too short, well at least the super elite (same distance) won in just 72mins.

POM Day 1 middle, ME (68/75)

Brutal reintroduction to threshold running around the historic town of Evora. Big hill climb up to number 1 got me breathing hard, looked at the map too quickly and took the wrong road to number 2, not a good start.

Got myself into a rhythm after that but messed up my breathing and after 11 developed a stitch. Walked up the next hill, waddled across the grass and stopped at 12 and took a few deep breaths. Started again at a slightly slower intensity but ran into oxygen problems again around 17/18 and messed up my route to 20 slightly.

From there managed to get the situation under control and finished strongly making some good, quick decisions and did particularly well through the park control pick.

All in all a not unexpectedly difficult challenge considering my current level of anaerobic fitness. Still, as always with urban events, enjoyable at the time. Nice scenery and good weather.
