East XC Champs - Livingston - Senior Men - 14th
After a rushed WU we were off quite comfortably round the first loop. Stuck in with Jonny behind Eoin and Tom M and took over a few quick starters. Soon I began to fade though and Jonny, and everyone else got away. Hit the second lap with Aidan T and overtook him on the climb. Got away but then stomach began to get very uncomfortable. Had huge gaps ahead to Mike C and behind to Aidan so just settled down and cruised the rest until the final top. Aidan then appeared out of nowhere and overtook me in a different gear. Struggled into the finish with horrible pains and soon recovered feeling like I hadn't even raced in the leg department...
Not too bothered, never get in a good race after exams and training hasn't been too focussed recently. Will taper properly and focus for Inter Districts.
