Northern XC - 11th

This was my goal race for the end of the winter to see how fit I was and how the training had gone. Treated it properly, tapered well and felt ready for the race.

In the race planned to star steady then work through. I did start steady then by the time the race was 10mins in I released that I didnt really have a top gear. Could cruise over the flat and downhills, but through the mud and on the uphills felt like i was lacking power and kept getting passed by road runners in these sections which was very annoying.

Was a bit of a struggle and mental battle most of the way because I aerobicly didnt feel like I was trying 100% but everything still hurt and I couldnt get the effort level any higher.

Bit disappointing, hope it was just the back end of this cold i have had for ages still not letting me get to that top end effort. Would have liked to have run better but still think the training is working just not the performance I thought the training could have got me. I want to try to change that for nationals in a month if I can
