Fan-y-Big

Stop laughing, that's it's name - the Fan-y-Big Fell Race. The rain fell, the wind blew in places but I enjoyed the run. Coming home in 1hr 32mins - and a few seconds - for 11th place. The race is just over 10 miles with 2,200 feet of ascent. After my long go on the bike yesterday I was pleased with how strong I felt come the end. Having said that, once I hit the road section in the final mile my legs were practically buckling under but I gained one place on the final descent from the top and he luckily didn't catch me back up on the road so the effort was worth it.

I feel more capable of surviving next weeks Seaview 17 - which is actually closer to 21 miles on foot...
