My last but one post back in November was about Cross Country running.
In the last paragraph I mention the next race which may be a bit boggy.
Well it was. Very boggy. In fact the worst conditions I’ve raced in. I’m definitely a road runner with the occasional relatively dry trail thrown in.
It took me a little over seventy minutes to complete the 10k course and once back in the club tent I told the few remaining hardy souls there that I had just retired from Cross Country after three races.
It wasn’t necessarily the conditions, it was that it was a race and I had to keep going for the team points when in reality I just would have preferred to walk or stop altogether.
For those that enjoy it and the challenge it entails, my hat is tipped to them. I’ll stick to what I enjoy.
