Lyrics This evening has been (Been hoping that you'd drop in)
So very nice (I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice)
Race report, typical I picked my mate Sacha up and we both said, so nervous, don't want to do this!!!! Lol.
The set up was Eton manor and 2 other clubs setting off in waves from 1.50. I was told that the race secretary estimated me at 29 mins and Sacha at 30! I was thinking more like 33 due to hills. So I set off and as soon as I hit the hill I felt awful, setting off with people faster than me maybe? Sacha and lots who set off 10 secs behind me overtook straight away. The course is two and half Laps so on the first I felt pretty rough. Got up the hill the second time lots better. I started to reel people in on this second lap. On one of the straights I saw I was closing down on Sacha so I thought, go for it!! Feeling strong and with maybe .75 of a mile to go, I passed her and she said 'i knew it' I replied you'll catch me on the hill no doubt! So third time up the hill and now on the half lap. She didn't catch me I really worked hard! Then you do a downhill on a bend, final push up the next hill and how lovely they changed the course to finish on a downhill!! My time 29.40 plus a lap pb. Sacha's time 30.07. we were both very pleased! Mates but we do compete against each other. She's about 17 years younger than me so I'm happy
What 3.7 easy miles
Last hard yesterday
Last rest 31/12
I'll catch up now
