Split times (l) vs actual (r) were almost bang on for today’s Reecho Rally TT 24km race in Tai Tam. 

A great day out and almost a podium, missing out by a couple of minutes. Ran strong with Paul in 3rd place with eyes on 2nd until he hit a rough patch about halfway through, but true to form he dug deep and we hung on for 4th. True grit from my Team Green teammate. 

Love this running lark, you just never bloody know what’s going to happen! Onward to the MSIG50…

Planning for this weekend’s 24km Reecho Rally TT. A new race and course, but on familiar grounds. Cooler weather and stronger running recently have given me sorely missed confidence for a strong run. Success starts with good planning!

Hello High West my old friend,
I’ve come to run on you again,
Your lovely trails soft-ly turn-ing,
My quadriceps are real-ly burn-ing,
And now a spider’s in my hair and I’m flailing a-round grabbing onto trees,
Oh my poor knees,
You’re such a tease, dear High West.

My race report for the #UTMB #CCC is finally done! Almost as epic as the race itself.

So immensely proud to have run with this gang at last nights Moontrekker - 2nd team overall and first mixed team, on a new course. 

The ebb and flow and highs and lows of team running still fascinate me and I think I get a lot more out of it personally than running solo - the dynamics are certainly much more accentuated.

Well done Team Green!

First official race of the season tomorrow night. Yep, it’s MOONTREKKER time again! After three years of running solo and a decrease in time of more than 30 mins YOY, it’s time for something different. Team Green ride again! New, longer course and finish should add some additional excitement too. Good luck everyone. Run hard, smile often!

Managed to beat the Blerch today and pull my unmotivated self out for a 25k plod. Still not really feeling it at the moment.

Dog’s Tooth Ridge looking outstanding today on our 2 Peaks recce. Another hot ball buster. Where are you autumn!?

A decidedly average day out, finishing 15th overall and 5th in category (old bastards). Couldn’t find my rhythm, so slow on the ups and flailing around on the descents, but the flat running let me down the most and I was passed by multiple people the last few km. 

Wanted to go faster but my body rejected the notion every time I tried. Seriously frustrating. I figure I’ve either not recovered fully from the UTMB CCC, am a little undertrained, and probably 2/3 pounds overweight. Serious discussion needed with myself. 

All that bullshit aside, an amazing course and fantastic weather for the inaugural @actionasiaevents Sai Kung 2 Ridges. Many thanks indeed to Paul and Cynthia for their strategic positioning atop Ma On Shan - lovely to see you! Racing Season is here!

It’s gonna be some kind of race tomorrow for the @actionasiaevents Sai Kung Double Cove 2 Ridges. Not feeling 100% fit at the moment but ready to give it my all. “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.” See you on the flipside. #trailrunner #trailrunning #hongkong #hongkongtrailrunners #hktrailrunner #hktrailrunning  (at 大金鐘山頂)
