I got mail, which in itself is unusual, even more so when it is heavy mail from a race.
So whats in the envelope? Certainly not something I expected, I thought perhaps it may have been some sort of draw prize that I hadn’t collected after the chocolate run.
Apparently I placed in my age group, pretty cool, when we looked at the results afterward we thought I may have come in 4th, no idea that I was 3rd.
So how has this running stars training been going since the 50 miler? Simply put not well, my feet have not healed as quickly as I would have liked. Attempted a trail run on Saturday managed only half the planned distance and doubled the size of the blood blister on my right heel.
Planned mileage: 42k
Actual mileage: 18k
Days run: 2
Excuses: I am a bit broken!!!
