The only positive thing I can say about my run today is that my Gluteus Medius is no longer sore. Thanks, Michael the masseur! If I am not running any better before the next handicap race rocks around in a month's time, I will switch to the long course after several years of running the short. I am not training for the track in the foreseeable future, so the long handicap series next year would be better training.

  1. But if you switch to the long course, who's going to yell at us as we head up those last hills towards the finish? ;-)

  5. After that it was up hill into a head wind! You were able to jog next to me a chat away while I was barely able to utter a word!!! Lighten up oh Speedy one.

  6. You were racing the last 2k of a hard 8k! I had fully recovered from my wimpy 4k and was cooling down! Of course I was fresher than you!
