25km trail race: 03:35:57 (71st out of 194)

No comparison between this & last week's race. I'm well used to 25km distance but this was a different challenge with:
  • Ascent: 1000m / 3200ft
  • Descent: 1000m / 3200ft
Snowing throughout so a lot of challenging climbs & descents were made even more interesting with constant snow, sludge or ice. Overall, it was really tough particularly the vertical hiking as my lower back always gets incredibly tight doing this. But the run also had many beautiful moments and was a completely new racing experience with great camaraderie from all involved . If I can improve how my back reacts to this sort of course, I think I'd have a lot of fun with them over the summer months.
