A shocker

My legs felt terrible. Warming was hopeless - all right, it wasn't that bad, no hang on, it bloody well was...

It was just Sean and I tonight and while he ran an excellent session of three hundreds in a mind boggling consistent - and down right fast - 43 seconds, I ran two 1600m very very slowly. It was more of an extended warm up and warm down. I almost weep to mention the times of 6:30 and 6:20 with a 2 minute recovery. A shocker is the only way to describe it.

I'm now almost certain not to run tomorrow the Thornbury 10k because unless I feel capable of running under 42 minutes it won't even be a solid tempo run. If I were a betting man I would not be putting down a big ante.

Off to sleep now...
