|acting every inch of my shoe-size.|
I lined up at Clay Bank East Fell race today to shake things out a bit. A couple of weeks ago I was really looking forward to pushing this and having a good race, but that was off the cards so I trotted round enjoying the frozen North York Moors. I managed to finish around 10th and pick up a few hopefully useful points in the Esk Valley winter series whilst maintaining an OK pace for an aching, tired body with old-man lungs, but it was frustrating to be able to see the leaders within range of me if I were healthy. Needless to say I declined the inner urges to race the afternoon's XC race, taking lots of photos instead.
Hoping I'm getting back to normal now and can pick up with the good training I was putting in before mucus got in the way. Edinburgh next weekend and the Kinder Trial the weekend after.
