5 mile XC around farthing downs (2 laps).
Went out pretty hard for the first 2 miles, very strong on the downhill sections and pretty strong on the up.
next 1.5 miles was an absolute killer, last power in my legs and about 15 places. Picked it up for the last bit and managed to claw back a couple of places, felt really strong up the last hill. Suffered for the last mile but kept the pace high.
1st 2.5 miles - 15.39 mins
2nd 2.5 miles - 16.39 mins
Total time - 32. 18 (49th overall, 3rd in SLH)
Would have preferred negative splits and I believe this pacing issue is the limiting factor in improvement.
