Krim was a no show... doh. Mandy fancied a lie in aswell, left just Johnny & I. Got there well early and did a lap of the lake to warm up... was feeling really pretty rough after a few beers and a massiVe curry last night.Saw Vinnie on the start line, then off we went.
I was taking it easy... despite it being my 50th, and after a bit of friendly needling from Johnny who was expecting a battle (lol), my ankle had been hurting for a few days so i was not smashing it today.
That was up till about 1k, when, i dunno, i guess one too many runners ran me down... did pretty well after that. Running naked again, really prefer this now.
Still not used to the new finish yet, and i'm not really good at judging at how far to the finish, though, there was an auto response at 600m where my body suddenly picked up the pace which was pretty cool, after all i thought i was pretty much going as well as i could. Then a bit of a faster finish but still couldn't catch the super junior who finished just ahead... well done kiddo. Seems a lot of this going on at the mo'.Vinnnie 19:29Johnny 20:21Me 21:53
Three laps of the lake to cool down then coffee & muffin with Vince and Johnny then home.
Very enjoyable run - great weather for it today.
Will do much better next week :o)
