Chiltern Cross Country league final race

Back to MK for the final race of the season at Campbell Park.  I enjoyed the run out last time on a beautiful Saturday afternoon but things were slightly different this time around. Some course changes took away the advantages of long downhill sections and those that remained were very muddy.  It was more cold, wet and extremely windy.  I started out a lot harder in the hope of not being delayed in the narrow sections and whilst this may have been an advantage I ultimately paid the price of going too hard too soon and subsequently lost some ground.  That said, it was a good run out and I was pleased with the way that I tackled the muddy sections in the Inov 8 X Talon 190s and pleased with my running form.  I again struggled into the stiff wind and uphill, more training is still required.  In the end I was 3rd for the club and 3rd in league 2 Mv50s.
