Result!

Massive congratulations to GWR for their fantastic third place in the Cotswold Way Relay yesterday and well done to Simon for managing to organise twenty runners for their two teams - no mean feat in itself. I was glad (and honoured) to have helped in a small way to their success - I'm only sorry I couldn't have stayed through the day to support the effort but I couldn't refuse the excuse for a booze-up, err, I mean genteel Birthday celebration - my head was not good this morning!

The team finished just over ten minutes behind the winners, Team Bath, and under two minutes from second placed Stroud - if only I could have gone just a little quicker..... but honestly, I gave it my all. My quads are really hammered today and as an added bonus I now have a matching pair of tight hamstrings - yes, that's correct, the right one has now dutifully joined the left. Hopefully it will ease off in a day or two. Suffice to say, what with that and the 160 mile drive home this afternoon I'm having a rest day. Normal training should resume tomorrow - no rest for the wicked - well, ok, a little bit of rest but I can't be going all namby pamby.

Thought for the day: What's another word for thesaurus?
