So I don’t have a serious injury, but it’s enough to stop me running for a few weeks, so in order to keep involved with the events that are going on and because we haven’t had a report on the website for a while I thought I’d write a few words about last weekend’s various events with really just a couple of conversations, the results and Strava to guide me. Apologies if my perceptions are wildly inaccurate, but you can put it down to my age!
Saturday started with the final XC of the season, the English National Schools Championships in Leeds. Back in the dim and distant past when I was a lad, this event was generally considered to be the highest standard race around. This is because not only do you have all the runners, but you also have lots of very fit youngsters taking part from other sports. Therefore, simply qualifying for the event is a big achievement.
