9:59'42.9 Running

3 weeks ago

Dorset CTS. 55th/165 starters. Glorious sunny but cold day. Felt good to ca 25 miles and then slowed fair bit suffering from low energy levels. Got cold and walked a fair bit. A toffee crisp worked wonders (forget energy bars) and finished strong for last ca 10 miles. This one gives me 2 points towards UTMB qualification so on track for TDS next year. Probably lost ca 15 mins to taking photos along the way and dealing with a blister caused by stray grit at 10miles.
