First time long breeks

Start 14.42

Really chilly east wind had the temperature feeling as if it was under 0 rather than the few degrees above that it actually was.  First time running with long sleeves and leggings this season.

Bovenkarspel Cross

Start 10.17

Today's cross was just under 4.5k. My average speed was faster than last week so I was pleased with that. I also kept up with the black ponytail who got away from me last week so she did an excellent job of pacing me! She of course had no idea that she was doing this. But she looked pleased when I thanked her at the finish line for pulling me along in her wake.

Wieringewerf Cross

Start 10.41

My trail run was... uneventful really. Which is actually not a bad thing sometimes. The threatened rain didn't happen during the women's run (holding off till the men's event started - teehee). I haven't uploaded my Garmin stuff yet but I think I slowed down a wee bit in the second circuit (it was 2 rounds of just under 3k). I certainly spent the last mile with no-one in sight ahead of me, which is always a bit demoralising, so either they all speeded up a lot or I slowed down. 
But I still ran significantly faster than I do when running alone so even when the competition is out of sight it somehow has an effect. My conclusion is that running with others occasionally is good, even for fairly uncompetitive folk like me. It spurs me on to achieve speeds I am unable to spur myself onto. (I'm possibly the laziest runner evah.) I overtook a few folk at the start and was overtaken by a few more (different ones) later but most of the distance was just a steady push, moving, as almost always, from a feeling of 'why do I do this? I can't run this fast for the whole distance, who am I kidding that I can run?' to a more relaxed 'oh, it's because I can actually do it, I'll be fine' later on.
