The weather window opened up for us again and I was slightly regretting not wearing my sunglasses as I was blinded coming down the hill in the final km. Not too soggy underfoot and I took to the grass on the plateau for a slightly softer run (I don’t want to get injured before next week). Probably my last hard run before the half, though I may do a reasonably intense speedwork session midweek, it depends on how I feel.
Remarkably I passed Marie at one point in the final km, but she passed me back again almost immediately – I must work on a stronger finish. I also took a single point out of Emma. Volunteering next week will give me a nice 100 points though for the points table.
I finished 78th out of 269, was 12th lady and 3rd in my age category.
