Ha ha Ric, just moaning about the results now with the missus!!! Was talking to John Downes before the start yesterday as he is friends with us at HHH. He been ill recently but hopefully on the mend.
So yesterday. Funny that actually the course has been muddier before and large parts were dry. But the muddy bits were very muddy and the mud pretty sticky rather than wet mud.
Been trying to shake the cold off and I had done, but still had the runny nose. So felt pretty normal, but the last time I had ran with a snotty nose was at Brighton last year in the southerns and had ran crap there. And so it proved that my legs weren't up to it right from the start. Started getting dropped from my usual compadres halfway through the first lap and went backwards from then on. Had a little word with Dachs as he came past on lap 2..lap 3 was just a case of getting slower and slower with a stitch to boot. Finally the finish and came in 197th as I've seen a photo of the results sheet. So as expected- if you're not 100% then Parly hill will spit you out!!
Anyway onto the pub and had a nice chat with Rob T and some of the other I was a runner Facebook lot. And the actress who played 'Charlotte big jugs' in the inbetweeners was in there too! Plus PP who has got a foot issue, hope he can get it sorted.
Bit of swimming today and a surprisingly ok hilly 45 min run after. Should be ok in a few days. Good run Bus and parkrun Pete
