A spoonfull of sugar ......

I enjoyed today's race up to the top of Sugar Loaf and back. I struggled a bit on the steeper climbs (there was about 1850ft of ascent in total) and had to stop a few more times than I would have liked but it was just too hard to breath deeply - besides I didn't drop too much time on those ahead of me when I did stop and walk.

I just managed to break the hour, 59:33, finishing in 11th place. I'm pleased with that because I wasn't sure I would manage it in light of this damn cold. All in all the Sugar Loaf was just what the doctor ordered and helped the medicine go down.
