Notts AAA @ Teversal
2nd - Pace was really slow at the start. I just sat at the front and waiting to see what others did but was happy not to push straight from the off. Adam Holland (of multiday marathon WR holder fame) burst past everyone on the first downhill after 2km and the race began. When out with Adam and James Mee although just off the back and quickly grew a decent lead off the back. Adam and James slowly pulled away with Adam particularly pulling away on teh downhills Despite my best efforts with stretching and rolling the last couple of days my hammies were still pretty damn tight.
However, on the long drag up the buttery Lane hill I pulled a little back on Adam before pulling away again. This gave me a little hope of catching him knowing the last 2km is all steadily uphill. He was the best part of 100m ahead at hitting the last 1mile but I just concentrated on just keeping up the effort level and had bought the distance down to ~30m with ~300m to go. At put in a sprint finish on the last uphill push at that stage and managed to pass him with ~50 to go and held it into the finish.
Really pleased with the race and ime particularly on a hilly course and a slow first 2km. Particularly happy with the last couple of km with the last mile on a uphill being my quickest section.
