TWO RACES IN ONE WEEKEND CHALLENGE


RACE ONE; ASHURST BEACON COUNTRY PARK X/C
Set high up at the top of Ashurst Beacon in the country park, this has to be the best X/C course in the north west, with 5 steep hills and copious amounts of mud! I Found the first small lap extremely hard going in the deep mud and hitting the first steep climb after only a couple of minutes running made for little or no time to settle in,I got a horrible feeling of wanting to stop! I was slipping and sliding all over the place. By the second lap Amanda Crook came past me, which gave me a shock! I decided to change back to CHIRUNNING, the smoother style seemed to help in the mud and i got back into a good rhythm. Into the final lap I seemed to get stronger passing several of my team mates in the closing mile to finish 5th counter for the club , we had an impressive 20 SWAC members turn out today!
Conclusions from this race; nowhere as fit as this time last year, but then I am only just starting my base training, this time last year I had two months of high mileage under my belt and was flying! Next stop
THE LANCASTER AND MORECAMBE 1/2 MARATHON tomorrow which I intend to run at marathon pace.
