A different course this time, from Bath Racecourse down into Pipley Wood. Lots of mud. Really lots and lots of mud. Over the knee wading mud. And 790' of vertical gain.
All the mileage and hill training I have been doing really paid off and I got a lot further up the hills a lot faster than before and recovered a lot quicker.
An hopes of a good time were dashed halfway when a lady fell over in the really deep mud and split her knee open, and a couple of other runners and I stayed with her for 20 minutes until a Marshal arrived and then, as she was getting hypothermic, carried her out to where an ambulance could get to her. Was seriously cold by the time I restarted but still managed to pick up a few places through the woods.
Quite chuffed to have completed the medal set.
