I say planned because the undulating road run would be the first test for the upper leg strained at the mile 5 point in last week's 10K on the Lytham promenade and I was prepared to have to abort.
Pleased to report the "test" was passed and this "medium" length run compensated for low recovery mileage on the days immediately after the race. But with no speed session it had to be a recorded as below par week with just 38 miles covered.
I think we must all have been hoping for the curtain of grey gloom to be drawn back by lunch yesterday to treat us to an afternoon of fine autumnal weather but it let us down. The 3rd fixture of the COMPLETE RUNNER CROSS COUNTRY league up on Northcliffe Playing Fields at Shipley near Bradford was a damp, cool, mist shrouded affair but did not seem to dampen the ardour of hundreds who took part.
Not a great day for clarity and quality of film with runners disappearing into and emerging from the Yorkshire mists but I hope the videos of the womens and mens races prove of interest. If you can't achieve full screen viewing , they are already on YOUTUBE.
