Went anti clockwise from the end if the dam at Empingham thinking I could finish fast across the dam.
Conditions were a bit wet and windy but not to warm so not bad overall.
I ran with a hydration pack with 1.2l of electrolyte drink and six gels. Could have maybe done with one more at the end.
I didn’t feel great from quite early in. I think I could go under 2.30 on another day.
