shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 340
Craig a Barns. M21L 8.1km.
Having not run for more than 2 consecutive days for months and months, and having realised my lack of terrain fitness I dropped out of the Elite Classic to do the shorter M21L in the hope that I might be left with a little energy to make myself useful in the relay.
Still felt absolutely beasted after this though. Even tougher terrain, but this time the sort of terrain that I just couldn't actually run in. Navigation was actually alright until I totally screwed up no.11, losing more than 10 minutes wandering around a middle green forested hillside.
Still, it was nice to be out in a 'proper' forest and to be doing generally ok with the map reading. Garmin tells me that of the 110mins I was out, I was standing still for nearly 15mins.
Finished 8th, 30mins behind Joe Taunton's lead time.
