This was a great training weekend at the lake district (dirty double) with Alnwick harriers, first up on Saturday Helvellyn 15k, it was the first time I competed in any trail race, it was tougher and more undulating than I’d ever expected but I found enough strength  to hold on for a very pleasing win, this was a very tough 15k race so I was delighted and surprised to follow it up with a win at Ullswater 14k on Sunday. This would also be the first time I’d ever raced  back to back days, it was a great training weekend for strengthening the legs.
