Ran in the Kent League XC. Hadn't been well this week. Everyone at home has had a bug and it affected me in a way that I was not holding down food. Felt slightly better Friday and decided I was OK to race on Saturday. Started off well, but was feeling quite lethargic although I was passing people throughout. Was hovering just outside the top 20 approaching the last lap and my left calf cramped up. Unable to carry on, so had to pull out. Disappointed by this, but the positive was I had got through 80% of a cross country race in spikes, which I have been totally unacustomed to in recent years. Also I was catching people on the hills, evn though I wasn't feeling great, so its a case of wait until the next league race - November 30.
