The George Cummings Road Relay came at the end of my first full week of the tweaked regime. I felt in need of a burn up. Unfortunately only one of my club mates, Ross Stephen, was of similar mind and we turned out to be the only two Cambuslang Harriers athletes present, supported by Ross' parents, my Dad and Mike Johnston. We were joined by a Maryhill Harrier to form a three quarter team. Disappointing considering how well we've supported this race in the past but c'est la vie.
Ross took 1st leg, running 14:14 for the 2.7 mile loop, bringing us in 7th. I took over, running with a bit of aggression to try and pull in some of those ahead. Ultimately I did though lost out to Inverclyde's Michael Houston, one of those I made up ground on, in a late sprint. I brought us in 5th which, if we had a full quartet and maintained position, would have won us a prize. My time was 13:11, 6 seconds down on my time on 3rd leg in 2014 and 13 seconds down on my 1st leg effort in 2013. This was fine for my state of fitness on the day though I feel the need to return next year to reverse my trend of gradually slowing times on the course.
