so when you plan to do something a certain way.
knowing full well that it aint gonna happen.
does it make you more or less stoopid when the inevitable occurs??

planned to use 6 foot as a 'tough training run'.
not sure what that was going to mean time-wise but probably 6.10-6.20.
asked for wave 3 and sat at the back.
walked down the stairs and made it to the river in 1.54.
had to pull off the track maybe 20 times for wave 4ers.
so far so good.

saw the first hill with all these people on it.
and what would you know.
i started running didnt i?
what a bloody surprise.
ran almost all the way from mini to pluvi.

so when the itb started to fail on the way from deviation i guess i only have myself to blame.
not sure the damage yet.
but with the sekrit lamington recce in 2 weeks and alpine 100 in 4 weeks its gonna be a bit of a rollercoaster unfortunately.

for the record finished just under 5.45.
too fast.
had a nice weekend otherwise :)
congrats to spud for breaking the team mellum pb.

Hmmmm, and I wanted to congratulate you on such a good finishing time.

BTW, I don't think its just a male thing, I think its a running thing. Don't beat yourself up. Instead, let me punch you in the belly next time I see you.

Look on the bright side.

Yes there is one.

It's an injury you've made many (many, many) times before. So you know how to treat it. Imagine if it was an injury you knew nothing about ! ;-)
